In collaboration with Dr Tim Regan at Microsoft Lab's, Listen to my World was a concert hall experiment to see whether an experience of New York would change the appreciation of Steve Reich’s music, or an impression of Berlin the perception of Max Richter’s.

In today’s increasingly connected world, people are exposed to a blurring flow of information; visual, auditory and factual. This unique project explored whether our perception of a city influences our appreciation of its music.

Featuring new compositions from New York, San Francisco, Tokyo, Berlin, Reykjavik and London, the city in which each piece was composed was brought into the concert hall (Kings Place) during its performance using location-aware, real-time internet sourced content: live video, geotagged photos, Twitter visualizers, trending locations and more.
