Net_Dérive is an artwork in the domain of location sensitive mobile media art. It is an installation piece extending beyond the confines of a gallery, to include the urban environment. Conceived for participative use from advanced mobile telephones, they call upon techniques from interactive music applied to new contexts that include the interplay of sound and image, an exchange between participants in the gallery and participants in the streets, and the creation of an abstract narrative from audiovisual media captured on multiple mobile devices. Deployed on portable, networked, location-aware computing devices, we seek to create a kind of musical instrument, thinking of the city-as-instrument.
