Music previews from Walkie Talkie Dream Garden, an interactive soundwalk by Dafna Naphtali, that connects sound environments in the waterfront neighborhoods of Williamsburg, Brooklyn (USA) and Wilhelmsburg, Hamburg (Germany) as part of the 2-year "W-Burg" artist exchange project.

Walkie Talkie Dream Garden was created for U-Gruve AR, a mobile device app and Audio Augmented-Reality platform by Richard Rodkin.

The full album will be released later this winter and available for purchase/download/streaming.

Sounds recorded on-site were used to create the electroacoustic pieces, which during the walk are played and altered by the physical (GPS) location of the participants who listen over headphones, to focus and comment on acoustic ecology of these two industrial and post-industrial-artist-occupied-gentrifying neighborhoods. Dafna wrote all the music, created sound pieces and did all vocal work.

The experience for listeners on the walk is different each time. As different files play in a differing order depending on where they walk, they are layered with unpredictable sounds that present themselves in the environment.

This album is one possible outcome/remix of all the music as it might be heard by a listener as s/he walks in Veringkanal in Hamburg, or at the Williamsburg waterfront in Brooklyn, NY.

Funding for Walkie Talkie Dream Garden comes from New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC), and the Hamburg Cultural Council.
