Description

Continental Harmony follows 58 composers in different locations across the U.S. as they write and direct music for communities. “Communities In Harmony” allows users to explore the national project and hear the words and music of the 58 commissioned composers. The site also provides information about how to involve your community with music. “Sound Lounge” is a media-rich, interactive playground that gives visitors a taste of the composer’s experience, as it explores how music influences our daily lives. With sound as the driving medium behind the experience, our challenge was to use the right combination of creative and technology to engage the user to unlock the magic of the music. Narration and animation are used to invite the user to interact with the site and discover the essences of music. Recordings and images from each composition project can be explored from a map of the U.S.
