Augmented Audio soundwalk in Washington Square Park, NYC powered by U-GRUVE AR.
Walkie Talkie Dream Angles, is an electroacoustic composition and interactive sound walk for Washington Square Park by Dafna Naphtali — traversing sonically interesting corners of the park to underscore the loss of quiet, past and future sounds, bringing a favorite urban environment to life, in a sonically unique and individual way. Processed pre-recorded environmental sounds are layered with voice, and some thoughtful strategizing about site-specific listening, interactivity and attention span.
LAUNCHED SEPTEMBER 2016 and is available 24/7 or whenever the park is open indefinitely!
