“Gaits” is an immersive, site-specific music procession featuring commissioned compositions by Lainie Fefferman, Jascha Narveson and Cameron Britt in which the wonders of our everyday technology transform participants’ movements into musical Improvisations. Paraders use a free app that captures the GPS coordinates and velocities of their movements to trigger a variety of twinkling metallic sounds, electric guitar chords, dulcimer notes, water splashes, car horns and applause – empowering marchers to effortlessly make music while interacting with their environment and each other. 

WHEN AND WHERE: 

Participants will arrive between 5:30-6pm at the southern end of The High Line, at the base of the Gansevoort Stairs,  Gansevoort and Washington Streets. Participants will be spaced out in groups of 5-10 every 3 minutes. Elevator access is available to the left of the main entryway stairs. The procession will walk north along the elevated park. 

HOW TO JOIN: 

Please RSVP using the form linked above. Prior to arriving, participants will be sent a link to download the Gaits App to their phone. Please download the app prior to arrival.

This program is produced in partnership with Friends of the High Line.
