The Gaits turns footsteps into electric guitar chords, zen gongs, and more...the user becomes a musical instrument as he or she strolls down the High Line in New York City. The user moves through a series of composed spaces, with various families of sounds tied to each area.
Created by Cameron Britt, Lainie Fefferman, Daniel Iglesia, and Jascha Narveson. Produced by Friends of the High Line and Make Music New York, in association with MATA. Presented as part of Make Music Winter on December 21, 2011. For more information, visit makemusicny.org/thegaits
Please note, this app only functions within the geographic bounds of the High Line in downtown New York City. Your device will require location services (i.e. GPS) in order to detect your location.
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Fix GPS for iOS 8.
Ratings and Reviews
Read about it in Time Out New York and downloaded, excited to test it out since my parents were in town. To be clear: this app plays the “ding” sound you hear when you get text messages at a random cadence, with occasional organ swells. My parents were unimpressed.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
