Soundscape: Site-specific performance/sound intervention

N-Train Traverse (3:13) Thousands of commuters pass over the Manhattan Bridge every day. As soon as the train exits the tunnel, signal is restored to cell phones and faces immediately drop into their devices, ignoring the spectacular view of New York that can be seen only from this vantage point.

N-Train Traverse is a sound intervention that prompts commuters to appreciate the view. The composition is based on modular themes that are cued by specific views from the bridge, integrated into the visual score. Commuters watch and listen to the skyline as they sit amongst the musicians on the N train. Source: Vimeo
