Celebrate the winter solstice with an immersive soundwalk along the High Line. Participants become performers as your footsteps are turned into sounds, creating a collective, whimsical music piece including twinkling metallic sounds, electric guitar chords, dulcimer notes, and water splashes. Inspired by Phil Kline's annual Unsilent Night, the original score was composed by Lainie Fefferman, Jascha Narvenson, and Cameron Britt for the High Line.

Download the iPhone or Android application and join the fun starting at 5:30 p.m. when we'll be registering participants and distributing small wearable speakers* for the duration of the event to the first 100 participants. The walk begins promptly at 6:00 p.m. on the street level below the High Line at Gansevoort and Washington Streets, moves through the park, and ends at West 30th Street.

*If you own a small portable speaker, bring it along to use during the soundwalk. Also, if you own a phone that doesn't have a headphone jack please make sure to bring an adapter.

This High Line public program is free and open to visitors of all ages. Advance RSVP is strongly encouraged to secure your spot.
