HOW IT WORKS HOW IT WORKS

The algorithm inside Sound View pulls real time data from 6 different APIs turning each into a sound layer that reacts to your exact location and movement. They combine to generate an infinite number of musical combinations.
SPEED > Beat Instrument
Suumo Sound View is powered by your actual movement. Using your phone's GPS data, the pace and tone of the music you hear generates to match your speed. Whether you're on a train or strolling down the road, the rythym and beat will reflect your movements.
CONGESTION > Melody
Suumo Sound View is powered by your actual movement. Using your phone's GPS data, the pace and tone of the music you hear generates to match your speed. Whether you're on a train or strolling down the road, the rythym and beat will reflect your movements.
AMBIENCE > Chord Instrument
Image analysis of the Google Maps API generates melodies based on the residential, commercial or rural areas around you. These melodies are selected from a range of different instruments and tones, designed to match the feeling and fit of your surrounding environment.
LANDMARKS > Sound Effect
The Google Places API triggers over 8,000 landmark sound effects, including train stations, shrines, parks, movie theaters, schools and hospitals. These effects are integrated seamlessly into your unique soundtrack as you pass them.
LANDMARKS > Sound Effect
The tone and effects that Sound View uses will change to reflect the current weather using the Open Weather Map API.cc
COMPASS > 3D Sound
Compass Data is used to accurately reflect the relative location of each landmark. This generates a 3D soundscape around you that reacts depending on the direction you're facing.
