U-GRUVE Lanch Reception and Listening Party

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


Come celebrate the official launch of U-GRUVE: Interactive Soundtracks for Public Spaces. U-GRUVE is an Audio Augmented Reality app for the iPhone that lets listeners interactively experience music that has been custom-composed for popular New York City locations. 

While these free audio installations have been running throughout Creative Tech Week, this event, as part of the HARMAN Store's Soundcheck Series, includes a live performance by U-GRUVE composer Michael Durek, featuring music from the app, on one of the best sound systems in the city. A brief demo will be given by U-GRUVE's creator, Richard Rodkin, prior to the performance.

After the performance, all are welcome to download the free app and head over to Central Park for a stroll around the Hallett Nature Sanctuary and The Pond to experience U-GRUVE first-hand.
