Local musician and sound designer Michael Kiley of The Mural and The Mint combined music, environmental sound and mobile technology to create a location-based composition and iOS app, The Empty Air. Kiley spent months exploring Rittenhouse Square with a microphone and recording the sounds of the park for an immersive experience. He plans to explore other neighborhoods as well. Kiley says (and we agree) it’s “an app that allows people to experience the city through music and become more connected and invested to it as a result.”
