Musicity features local artists using architecture as inspiration for music pieces. Their work is then uploaded to an app, which allows you to stream it for free in front of the locations that were used for inspiration.

The project is the brain child of Nick Luscombe, a Radio 3 DJ, and Simon Jordan of Jump Studios. They say that they're hoping to promote new music, but also alter the way that it's consumed: "In an age when so much music is available in an instant, we want to bring back the joy of seeking it out." Exploration of the cities that they work in features as a big part of what they seek to do. And it's not just London - in the past, they've worked all over the world, including Singapore, Barcelona and New York.

Artists such as Throwing Shade, William Boyd, Hejira, Stick in the Wheel, Moses Boyd, Sean O'Hagan, and Patten can be heard from such architectural muses as Borough Market, The Shard, Time and Talents, Finnish Church, Canada Water Bus Station, Peckham Library and Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre. For the full experience, take one of the free listening tours, or attend the talks at Peckham Pelican and Deli Felice.
