As part of the One Spark project currently going on in Jacksonville, FL, some friends created/contributed to this app.
The Aurora App amplifies your surroundings by streaming exclusive music composed by local artists to your area.
Aurora detects your geo-location and based on that will start streaming a song composed by a local artist to that specific street, address or area.
Rediscover your city through “ECHOES”. Exclusive tracks are created by artists and then attached to a location, users can then listen to these echoes or songs while being close to the location where the tracks are set.
Learn about the artists, collect bios and read the stories of each song.
Aurora lets you also find the perfect song through “MoodSwings”. This feature allows you to gently shake your mobile device to find the perfect song.
Currently the App is only functioning in Jacksonville, but plans to expand to other cities are in the works. It’s such a cool idea, and I can’t wait to see/hear it implemented here in Athens and elsewhere. In addition to being a great way to learn about local music scenes, it’s also basically a musical scavenger hunt! How fun!
