Is a little more than 3 weeks that I’ve already been in the “Big Apple” and have been in Central Park for a summer movie, and couple more times in my skates. This Saturday I went around 3pm again to this beautiful piece of nature to experience the sound walk “Her long black hair”made by Janet Cardiff, despite the forecast of a storm.
The coziness of Janet voice, the sounds she uses to create an atmosphere of more than 40 years ago, the feeling to search the exactly same spot the picture was taken, the experiments you try (even if the ideal season to make the sound walk it would be winter) and most of all the coincidence of what you see with what the track is telling you made this sound walk amazing. In my case I saw a homeless guy in the bench, a musician in the tunnels, the wedding under the arch (it wasn’t a couple of Asians though), the bird standing at the head of the statue and the best for me was the waiting under a tunnel till stops raining.
I really recommend this experience to any person that hasn’t done it yet. Better if you go by yourself.
Till now my best New York experience.
I’m glad this has been your favorite NYC experience so far. If you have free time check out the Chinatown walk as well!
Yes Gabe, i will.
Hey I am so excited I found your blog, I really found you by
accident, while I was researching on Yahoo for something else,
Nonetheless I am here now and would just like to say cheers for a tremendous post and a all round exciting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have
time to browse it all at the minute but I have book-marked
it and also included your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read
a great deal more, Please do keep up the fantastic work.
Thanks Rosita, is a nice feeling to know you like,,, i really recommend you to do the soundwalk, and now that is getting colder you would feel more the track.
