featuring U-Gruve Augmented Audio in Washington Square Park, NYC.
Walkie Talkie Dream Angles, an electroacoustic composition and interactive sound walk for Washington Square Park by Dafna Naphtali — traverses 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.
Written for U-GRUVE, a mobile device app and Audio Augmented Reality system created by Richard Rodkin of Memetic Arts, U-GRUVE ￼enables the creation of ￼interactive soundtracks for public spaces using listener/participants ￼phones and GPS sensors to trigger geo-tagged musical outcomes to predefined zones in the targeted environment.
