In this current time of isolation Unsung Heros will be an augmented reality app that allows local bands and musicians to be transported to play gigs in the comfort of peoples homes.
In it, bands and musicians will be shrunk down to the size of a coffee cup and will be placed on any domestic surface that the audience member chooses. Bands will be playing miniature gigs on desks, sofas and shelves, thus animating peoples homes with their music and performance.
We would like to select 5 different musicians from the local area and record them performing in a green screen studio.
Our audience will receive 5 postcards with illustrations based on the songs' content and instructions of how to download and use the Unsung Heros app. When the audience points their camera phone at the postcards, the performance begins and the musicians appear to perform their music on top of 'postcard stages'.
The postcards could also be a medium through which Hexham Arts centre can communicate any messages through their own marketing ie. upcoming news, performances and events.
