10. Winter Solstice at the High Line
Celebrate the winter solstice with The Gaits Soundscape 2017, an immersive “soundwalk” on the High Line. Prior to the event, which takes place on Thursday, December 21, download The Gaits App for iPhone or Android. Then, following check in at 5:30pm, where the first 100 participants will receive portable speakers, the walk will begin on street level before moving through the park.
Together, participants will create a collective music piece with “twinkling metallic sounds, electric guitar chords, dulcimer notes, and water splashes.” This event is inspired by Phil Kline’s annual Unsilent Night. Participants are encouraged to bring their own small portable speakers for the event.
