AbstractIn this paper we describe experiments carried out at the Nibe music festival in Denmark involving the use of mobile phones to augment the participants' sound experience at the concerts. The experiments involved N=19 test participants that used a mobile phone with a headset playing back sound received over FM from the PA audio mixer system. Based on the location of the participant (distance to the stage) a delay was estimated and introduced to the playback on the mobile phone in order to align the sound in the headset with that from the on-stage speakers. We report our findings from our initial “in-the-wild” experiments augmenting the sound experience at two concerts at this music festival.
