“Walkie Talkie Dream Angles”, by Dafna Naphtali (2016)
Washington Square Park, NYC, NY
Meet under the Arch
In recognition of Sound Walk Sunday, the New York SoundWalkers Meetup is thrilled to be able to host this “special edition” soundwalk featuring Dafna Naphtali’s “Walkie Talkie Dream Angles” (2016).
Walkie Talkie Dream Angles is an electroacoustic composition traversing sonically interesting corners of the park to underscore the loss of quiet, past and future sounds, bringing a favorite urban environment to life, in a sonically unique and individual way. Processed pre-recorded environmental sounds are layered with voice, and some thoughtful strategizing about site-specific listening, interactivity and attention span.
As an added bonus, Ms. Naphtali will be on hand to discuss her process and motivation, and to guide the soundwalk.
More information on “Walkie Talkie Dream Angles” can be found here.
PLEASE NOTE that while “Walkie Talkie Dream Garden” is built with the U-GRUVE AR system, it is an independent app, and therefore must be downloaded separately. The app is free, and is available on both iOS and Android platforms.
