Walking piece details
Walkie Talkie Dream Angles is an electroacoustic composition and interactive sound walk for Washington Square Park by Dafna Naphtali — 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.
Walkie Talkie Dream Angles was created for U-GRUVE AR, a mobile device app and Audio Augmented Reality platform created by creative technologist Richard Rodkin of Memetic Arts, which enables the creation of ￼interactive soundtracks for public spaces using listener/participants ￼phones and GPS sensors to trigger geo-tagged musical outcomes to predefined zones in the targeted environment.
