Today, cultural organizations such as museums are seeking new ways to attract and engage audience. Augmented reality based applications are seen very promising. The target is to provide more interactive experiences for an audience with high familiarity of digital interaction. So far, visual presentation has been dominant in augmented reality systems. In contrast to this trend, we have chosen to concentrate on audio augmentation as user generated soundscapes. This paper discusses our approach, focusing on how to design and develop an easyto- use and smoothly working Android application, which increases user interaction by developing soundscapes from building blocks stored in audio digital asset management system. We have successfully implemented applications for Android platform and evaluated their performance.
