The Constant App is an iOS application which uses augmented reality to deliver The Constant, 52 musical compositions from several genres, in a unified manner.

Monkeystack was commissioned to produce an interactive method of presenting the compositions to a new audience in a festival environment. The result is an application which uses an iPhone or iPad to reveal sound and vision not present in real life. A unique artwork was created for each composition which reflected its mood and feeling.

These are then modified to be used as markers for the application and incorporated in to posters which are displayed publicly. With the free application on their iPhone or iPad, users direct the camera of their device at the poster. The application recognizes the unique artwork, bringing the poster to life through animation and accompanied by the music specific to that artwork.

Visual aspects presented on screen react to the user’s position in relation to the marker, and even when the marker is not in sight the audio continues to play providing the user with a portable way to remain engaged with the application.
