The setting of the woods is meant to enhance the listening experience as many songs draw heavily on the theme of a man’s relationship with nature. Given the geo-specific limitation on where people can listen to the album, we are denied the luxury of having this content available to us wherever we want, which is something that many mobile apps have conditioned us to expect. Instead of using music to drown out our fellow bus passengers, this sort of idea forces listeners to stop and embrace an environment wholly while providing an additional layer to the experience.
Adding exclusive audio to the experience of being in a physical location has the ability to change how we feel and understand the spaces we’re in. Aside from the forest, this sort of technology can be implemented in cities as well to create different moods, responses, and experiences. For example the tourism, education, and entertainment industries are only a few that come to mind where this sort of app could be used to create more multi-dimensional experiences in urban spaces.
