LiveNote was created to minimally impact other audience members while delivering complementary content to each patron.

"The app was not intrusive. On the contrary, I felt consistently engaged with what was happening onstage…I’ve heard Shostakovich’s Seventh before, and I’m familiar with its tumultuous history, but using LiveNote that evening helped connect me to the music more intimately."

-  Jeremy Reynolds, “Notes on the Go,” Symphony, Spring 2018
