Stream your own personal cinematic soundtrack as you stroll though Brisbane with help from the City Symphony app
Whether we’re heel-and-toe racing to work, meandering our way to a brunch date or going for our daily workout walk, a stroll isn’t the same without a soundtrack. Popping your headphones in to listen to some of your favourite tunes before running out the door is a therapeutic ritual. The folks at QMF understand the importance of listening to good music, and have created a new app to help you to do just this. City Symphony allows users to stream a specially curated soundtrack while they stroll through Brisbane’s iconic streets and landmarks. Want to discover a romantic audio wonderland?
