dc.description.abstractResearch Background: AURALITY is an augmented reality audio project exploring Queensland’s rainforests, rivers and reefs through music, sound and acoustic ecology. The project involved the development of a new mobile application for iOS and Android that uses GPS points along the entire coastline of Queensland to trigger audio based on location and movement. The mobile app launched on World Listening Day 2017 (18 July) with 100 soundscapes activated across Queensland. Research Contribution: AURALITY active locations included Brisbane, Noosa, Tin Can Bay, Maryborough, Hervey Bay, Yeppoon, Airlie Beach, Townsville and Cairns. The app involved the development of new tools for accessing location-aware audio experiences, including 3D spatial sound tools. The project involved the production and composition of 90 minutes of original soundscapes that were located along the coastline of Queensland, with multi-site activations in nine communities. Research Significance: Queensland Music Festival presented AURALITY as a major project in their 2017 program, with support from Brisbane City Council, The Queensland Conservatorium Research Centre, Noosa Alive and Noosa Regional Gallery. The project launched on July 18 (World Listening Day 2017) with the activation of 100 original soundscapes across nine Queensland communities. The work was experienced by over 2500 listeners during QMF 2017 and continues to expand, with further invitations for the project internationally in 2019.
