About

The Holladay Brothers are renowned for their location-aware composition: music created and mapped to a physical space, released as apps, using a mobile device’s GPS to dynamically alter the music as the listener traverses a landscape. Their first production, “The National Mall” mapped to the park in Washington, DC, was described by the Washington Post as “magical…like using GPS to navigate a dream.” They’ve since gone on to create similar works for New York’s Central Park, SXSW Interactive in Austin, Texas, and other sites around the world, partnering with groups like IBM and the US State Department in the process. In 2013, they served as visiting artists at Stanford University’s Experimental Media Art Department to begin work on their forthcoming location-aware based composition spanning the entirety of the Pacific Coast Highway in the US. In 2018, in partnership with the US Department of State, they will release a location-aware composition to coincide with the opening of the new US Embassy in London.
