Volkswagen Group of America (VWGoA) has partnered with The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) to create a first-ever augmented audio guide as an integral part of Björk, a retrospective of the Icelandic artist and musician Björk, opening at the Museum of Modern Art on March 8, 2015.

The innovative technology is based on the application “Sound Journey” developed by Volkswagen, which generates a personalized sound track using data gathered from driver inputs such as rate of acceleration/deceleration, steering angle of the steering wheel, and vehicle speed. With Sound Journey as a platform, the augmented audio guide for the Björk retrospective creates a 3D listening experience by building on the combination of signal processing, location-based trigger points, and movements of each individual visitor to create a customizable experience for each visitor of the exhibit.
