Soundwalk Collective, the New York-based
group of sound artists, collaborates
with Crossing the Line to produce
a audio-guided walk
along Museum Mile.
The audio-guide is available for free download at soundwalk.com/crossingtheline. Please download the file onto your MP3 player/smartphone at home before heading to Museum Mile.
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.
