Mobile Audioscape is a system that manage wide area mobile audio environments, where multiple participants share an overlaid continuous virtual audio environment, while navigating through real physical space. Each user is equipped with a mobile computing device, GPS receiver, orientation sensor, microphone, headphones, or various combinations of these technologies. We investigate methods of location tracking, wireless audio streaming, and state management between mobile devices and centralized servers.

The system allows mobile users, with subjective 3-D audio rendering, to share virtual scenes containing interactive audio elements. These elements can be organized into large-scale spatial audio interfaces, thus allowing for immersive mobile performance, locative audio installations, and many new forms of collaborative sonic activity.
