The National Mall is Bluebrain's first "location-aware" album/app.

Imagine hearing your own personal soundtrack playing as you make your way up the National Mall. Ryan and Hayes Holladay -- the Virginia-born brothers who make up the musical duo Bluebrain -- have created just that, with their new, free, "location-aware" iPhone app, The National Mall. Rebecca meets the Holladays on the National Mall to talk about the project - which they describe as a combination of an album... an app... and an "experience"...

[Music: "The National Mall" by Bluebrain / "Touch of Grey" by David West and John Rosenberg from Pickin' on the Grateful Dead: A Tribute]
