Gaits: A High Line Soundwalk
“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.Venue: The High Line
