Groove to Griffith Park’s New Soundtrack | Apr. 2
On the April 2 episode of “SoCal Update,” Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Ellen Reid created a free app that allows one to walk, hike or relax at Griffith Park while listening to a site-specific score. KCET Assistant Digital Producer Victoria Gonzalez explains.
Ellen Reid Soundwalk, a new public art piece, uses a GPS-responsive app to generate an intentionally synchronous soundscape for visitors to Griffith Park. Anyone can download the free app, head to Griffith Park, and walk, hike or relax as they listen to Reid’s site-specific score. The project is presented by UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance, with music performed by Kronos Quartet in addition to Reid’s Soundwalk ensemble. As a listener moves through the park, the GPS triggers subtle changes in the music.
