Avalismo is an interactive aural map of the music scene of Potsdam, Germany. A physical button on a tabletop screen allows the user to interact with the map and dive into the musical world of the city. Live recordings from local practice rooms give an unfiltered experience of selected artists. The reduced visual appearance stimulates an explorative interaction by focussing on the aural sense. Avalismo augments a classic map by a sonic layer to make it an unique immersive experience.
Avalismo was started in Summer 2010 by Benedikt Langer and Jonas Breme at the University of Applied Sciences in Potsdam. The project was part of the class RadicalMaps, which was supervised by Prof. Dr. Heidmann and Prof. Krohn.
