This allows sounds to be perceived as emanating from a certain area, becoming softer or louder depending on the distance of the car from the mapped areas.
The creation of the sonic maps is a work-in-progress consisting of sounds created and supplied by an increasing number of artists
in selected cities.
The placement of the sounds according to GPS Longitude/Latitude in the "real" environment is determined by the artists within the limits of a given rectangular area, usually within 20 minutes driving distance from the center/gallery hosting AUDIOMOBILE.
