What I mean by that is that there is always something wrong. Some component that’s malfunctioning. Some part you thought you fixed that breaks just when you need it.

Bluebrain digitally tagged hundreds of overlapping physical “zones” in the Mall and synced them to various arrangements in the app/album, so that as a listener wanders among the monuments, “the melodies, rhythms, instrumentation and pace of the music vary based on the listeners’ chosen path.” A map provided in the app, designed byDanny Jones, serves to guide the listener around the Mall — in fact, the emblem on the cover is based on an aerial view of footpaths around the Washington Monument.
Whoa. This is cool. I’d be really interested to hear how they transition from piece to piece.
