A musical interlude

We are putting the finishing touches on our multimedia guide & app for the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel Chicago.

The Radisson's Art of Blu tour will feature audio and video commentaries on the hotel's architecture, interior design and its eclectic and vibrant gallery of contemporary art.

Their collection includes work by Vivian Maier, a Chicago-area nanny and prolific amateur street photographer who took some 100,000 images in her lifetime (and those are just the ones we know about!) but didn't become famous until after death. You can read more about her incredible story here.

Her images inspired Tony Cirne, our Manager of Multimedia Production, to compose this piece of music.

Follow us on Twitter to find out when the app will be released!
