Hear your city afresh: a new app, Geography, encourages you to explore Truro through Graham Fitkin's music

Geography app

There are plenty of apps for your phone which encourage you to explore places in different ways, but an innovative new app, Geography, allows the user to experience the city centre of Truro as an immersive musical journey of their own making with music specially created by Cornwall-based composer Graham Fitkin (you can hear him talking about the project on his website), and the app produced in association with Hall for Cornwall

You can either walk around the city whilst connected to the app, and the soundtrack will change accordingly, or you can save and share the music, experiencing Truro remotely through the music and each person's soundtrack will be different, bringing city exploration to life in a very different way. Fitkin has composed different tracks for different ‘pathways’  - be that roads, footpaths or pavements - through the cityscape,  so the decisions taken by each listener as they make their journey, make these musical sections combine into a linked composition.
