An historic XR (extended reality) audio installation to transform Toronto public transit, in honour of the centennial anniversary of the TTC.

Through a web-based mobile app, riders experience an eclectic mix of site-specific ambient songs, soundscapes, and scores for over 25 discrete stretches of TTC line – written by musicians from, and for, neighbourhoods spanning the breadth of the public transit grid. These sounds can be experienced through a web-based mobile app. Musical excerpts unfold generatively for listeners travelling across streetcar or bus routes. AMBJ offers new modes of encounter with our urban geography: simultaneously public and private, intimate and communal, and accessible to millions of daily riders across the TTC.
