The intersection of strangers, music and place

We're accustomed to the generic sounds of city - the din of traffic, muffled conversations between friends, wind russling the trees, birds chirping. But what are the individual sounds of a place heard by those who occupy it?

Contingent on proximity, people temporarily swap music, getting an immediate glimpse into the headphones of those around them. Without having to speak, strangers have an ephemeral connection in a specific place.

Role: user flows, wireframes, prototyping, mockups, animation, interface design

Connections are contingent on proximity: when two users' broadcasting zones overlap they switch songs.

A history of shared listening accumlates, revealing patterns within the city.
