“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. 


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. 


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.
