I’m currently working on building an app for Mnemosyne that expands on the ways in which we can stream audio and interact with participants. It will include a built in list of upcoming performances, with an option to start streaming at the time of performance. Within an event, those who are streaming a track, could become a mobile speaker. Eventually, we want to have multiple electronic parts that participants can choose from to stream/ broadcast. If there are several different parts being played by phone and Bluetooth speakers alike, then there is natural live diffusion as people move throughout the space.
With our next performance down at La Esquina in November, I hope to have this app developed. There will be many musical and visual events on that night around the block, so if we can amplify that space with participants phones, then we can effectively transform the space.
I’m still uncertain what else the app will include, but this will be the main focus of development for the next couple of months.
