Moede NCMA is a mobile application for iOS and Android. Moede tracks user location and cues an array of audio samples to play and mix while users move through the North Carolina Museum of Art park. The musical score has been composed in response to the landscape by artists Kael Greco and Gregg Perkins.
Each circular region depicted below represents one musical/sound effects sample loop that tigger depending on the user's proximity to the center of the region. Users are able to move through regions in any order and cue the music with their physical movement.
