Composers Lainie Fefferman, Jascha Narveson, and Cameron Britt have created a free smartphone application that turns footsteps into twinkling metallic sounds, electric guitar chords, dulcimer notes, water splashes, car horns, and applause. By connecting them to small, wearable speakers, smartphones become instruments effortlessly played by strolling, sauntering, or sprinting down the High Line.
The piece begins at 5:00 pm at the southern end of the High Line, at the base of the Gansevoort Stairs. To join, download the free Gaits application to your phone; speakers will be available on loan for the first 100 participants.
In addition, prior to the event, Friends of the High Line’s Solana Chehtman and composers Lainie Fefferman and Jascha Narveson will discuss the inspiration behind The Gaits in a free discussion held at 3:00 pm in the Apple Store (401 W 14th St).
Produced in association with Friends of the High Line. Software development by Daniel Iglesia.
