U-GRUVE is an ongoing, public audio installation, marking its official launch with New York Creative Tech Week 2016.
U-GRUVE blurs the line between listening and performing, and turns your normal, passive, listening experience into one that is enriching, memorable, and unique to your interactions, ultimately strengthening your connection to the places you love.
Now, with your GPS-enabled mobile device (currently iPhone only), you can create soundscapes with original music composed specifically for a select number of well-known public spaces throughout Manhattan. And because the arrangement is controlled by your unfolding path within the space, the resulting music that you hear may be entirely different from what someone else hears.
