MyCity MySounds by ZKM Karlsruhe

ZKM Karlsruhe released MyCity MySounds, an app that has been many years in the making! While not necessarily a music app, I think this idea of recording city soundscapes offers an interesting opportunity for sound designers. The app encourages people to record their city from all over the world.

From the app, or from their website, you can listen to other people's recordings.Today's news stories have been greatly delayed by me doing exactly that. Exploring the map and listening to sounds all over the world can be a deeply fascinating time-sink!

MyCity MySounds iTunes Description:

Explore and capture the sound scapes of your city.

The MyCityMySounds player allows you to play sound walks created and shared by the hundreds of sound artists all over the world. In addition, the designer allows you to create and upload your own media from anywhere using your exact GPS coordinates.

This app is realized by the collaboration of ZKM Karlsruhe, Medea Electronique Athens, and Onassis Cultural Center Athens within the framework of the Interfaces project, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.

I gave it a try but there's no way to export audio from within the app and all the recordings are mono.
