Site Specific Music

Reconnecting with Public Art – George Square

The George Square Site-specific Music project was funded by a Creative Scotland R&D grant and, in collaboration with internationally-recognised composer Sally Beamish, has developed an innovative prototype system to deliver an original musical composition inspired by the public art of Glasgow’s George Square. Developers at SimVis have designed and implemented a publicly-available mobile app that mixes and remixes the composition as the user walks around George Square, exploring its Victorian statuary, for a unique, dynamic, aural experience.

The mobile app and full suite of music, called Set Round A Square, is now freely available from Google Play.
