Walking piece details
U-GRUVE AR is an Audio Augmented Reality system and app that enables composers to create interactive soundtracks for public spaces, and lets participants experience those pieces via their smartphone with the U-GRUVE AR app installed.
The app consists of multiple soundwalks at various sites in New York City, such as Lincoln Center, The High Line, Washington Square Park, Central Park’s Conservatory Garden, and more, with music composed by leading composers in New York’s experimental and electro-acoustic music scene. Participants can experience those pieces at any time, for as long as they want, provided the location is open and accessible
In conjunction with the New York SoundWalkers Meetup, we have three group soundwalks scheduled from 28 August through 26 September.
