Adding the Soundwalk to the my staycation itinerary.
Fifth Avenue from 82nd Street to 90th Street
Audio available in
an English version
and an English & French version
Soundwalk is ongoing and can take place every Wed, Fri, Sat, and Sun, from 11am–5:30pm
The soundwalk takes approximately 90 minutes to complete.
The audio recording features commissioned anecdotes, inspired by a building, object, or place in the neighborhood, and written by French writers Olivier Cadiot, Philippe Claudel, and Camille Laurens, and New York-based authors Teju Cole and John Giorno.
The walk takes listeners, using their MP3 players or smartphones, into the authors’ worlds and on a journey—real or imagined—to the source of each writer’s inspiration. The spoken texts are supported by original music and sound design created by Soundwalk.
