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 2016, available 24/7 (or whenever the park is open) indefinitely!
UPDATE: 4-28-21 temporarily under maintenance..

Walkie Talkie Dream Angles was created for U-GRUVE AR, a mobile device app and Audio Augmented Reality platform created by creative technologist Richard Rodkin of Memetic Arts, which 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.
