At Geovative.com you can “create ‘tours’, or groupings of locations on a map, and add text, images, or audio files to each location. Tours can be shared with anyone across the world through GeoTours Xchange. If you prefer seeing things in person, you can download tours to a supported GPS device through GeoTours On the Go.”
The Premium service allows “you to create personalized Mini-Sites, add tours to your own web page using Tour Widgets, and view detailed statistics and graphs about your tours. Plus, GeoTours Premium is ad-free and you get 10 times the normal storage space! GeoTours Premium is a subscription-based service, but there’s also a free 1-month trial available.”

Author Duncan Speakman on ‘always something somewhere else‘:
“In the work the listener is asked to locate various substances that form the contemporary urban environment (glass, stone, concrete etc.). As they mark the location of each one they begin to hear interwoven stories connecting them to remote locations around the world, soundtracked with a generative music score. The narratives are progressed and concluded as the listener returns to the locations they chose. The piece is reflective and sometimes melancholy, it touches on issues of climate change and global awareness, but ultimately encourages the listener to treasure the moments around them…”
