Walkie Talkie Dream Angles: audio augmented reality at NoiseGate Festival"“walkie-talkie dream angles” an interactive sound walk from Washington Square, into SoHo, ending at Harvestworks, with forays to sonically interesting spaces to underscore the loss of quiet in this part of the city where I have worked for many years. Presenting “walkie-talkie dream angles” at NoiseGate 2016 is an opportunity to bring a favorite urban environment of mine to musical life and present it in a unique and individual way. With pre-recorded environmental sounds from the area that I will audio-process, I layer these sounds with my voice, and use some thoughtful strategizing about site-specific listening, interactivity and attention span.
