DATE & TIME
Monday, December 21, 2015 | 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM
Meet below the High Line at Gansevoort Street
The Gaits: A High Line Soundwalk is a free, downloadable smartphone application that features a score of electric guitar chords, zen gongs, and more composed by Lainie Fefferman, Jascha Narveson, and Cameron Britt. As participants walk along the High Line, footsteps are turned into twinkling metallic sounds, electric guitar chords, dulcimer notes, water splashes, car horns, and applause. This program is produced by Friends of the High Line in association with Make Music New York, with software development by Daniel Iglesia, and with special thanks to MATA.
To join the fun, download the iPhone or Android application and arrive promptly at 5:00 PM. The walk begins on street-level below the High Line at Gansevoort and Washington streets, moves through the park, and ends at West 30th Street.
If you own a small portable speaker, bring it along to use during the soundwalk, or be one of the first 100 participants to arrive at the meeting location to borrow a free, wearable speaker for the duration of the event.
This program is free and open to visitors of all ages. No RSVP required. This event will be held rain or shine.
