Curzon Memories at AppCircus and Channel Weather Symmetry app launched
We are pleased to highlight the fact that, in the last week, two DCRC-related apps have reached significant milestones. DCRC researcher Charlotte Crofts' Curzon Memories app was one of only ten apps to be selected for the London AppCircus event on the 4th of July. MA Media Practice and Culture alumnus Geriant Ffrancon has also seen his Channel Weather Symmetry app made available for download this week. Two fantastic examples of the creative practice work conducted as a part of the remit of the DCRC.
On the auspicious date of the 4th of July, Charlotte Crofts and Jo Reid, from Calvium, attended the AppCircus event at the Google London Campus to pitch the Curzon Memories app to a distinguished panel of judges. The prize for the selected app was to be taken forward for consideration in the global Mobile Premier Awards. Curzon Memories received eoncouraging and complimentary feedback and Charlotte has returned buzzing. Thie assocaited practice-based research for the development of this app has been taken forward with the REACT Heritage Sandbox project 'City Strata', which will be showcased in September.
The DCRC team were really pleased to hear from MA alumnus Geriant Ffrancon that his Channel Weather Symmetry app has been accepted in the Apple and Android App Stores. The project received grant funding from the PRS for Music Foundation and was commissioned by Local Journeys and the National Trust. Channel Weather Symmetry formed the final project for Geriant's MA practice, exploring sound and music influenced by the spectacular landscape of Rhossili and Brean Down, located either side of the Bristol Channel.
