The Summer of Gruve continues as we sojourn down the High Line, which contains 3 audio/music installations extending the entire length of the park from 34th Street to Gansevoort.
We will meet at the High Line’s entrance on 34th Street, between 11th and 12th Avenues.
West 34th Street to West 27th Street: “seven for DC casfader wandering”, Jesse Stiles, composer
West 23rd Street to West 16th Street: “Train Tracks”, Michael Durek, composer
West 16th Street to Gansevoort Street: “Untitled”, Barbara J Weber, composer
Gansevoort Street, around the Whitney Museum of American Art: “Echoes of the 12 Shouts”, Milica Paranosic, composer
The walk itself will take approximately 45 – 60 minutes, after which the group is invited to stay to discuss the soundwalk experience, either on-site or at a local venue.
Note that the timing of this walk is a little later than what we’d normally do, but we’ve found that the High Line is a bit more habitable in the evening hours, and the sunset ambience is much more conducive to soundwalks!
As a reminder, to experience the soundwalk you must download the U-GRUVE AR app in order to hear the music. The app is free, and is available on both iOS and Android platforms.
