McEvoy Arts and Kronos Festival present: Ellen Reid SOUNDWALK

SEE EVENT DETAILS
McEvoy Foundation for the Arts joins forces with the Kronos Performing Arts Association to bring a unique self-guided, musical experience to San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, launching as part of the 2021 Kronos Festival (June 11-18).

Ellen Reid SOUNDWALK is a GPS-enabled work of public art by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Ellen Reid and San Francisco's renowned Kronos Quartet that uses music to illuminate the natural environment. SOUNDWALK is tailor-made for its setting, created to encourage calm reflection and introspection, and can be experienced while following social distancing guidelines. The user's location triggers a live, overlapping mix of musical motifs and works performed by Kronos, Reid, and other musicians, all recorded from home in 2020 during the COVID-19 shelter-in-place order. Listeners can access the audio installation via a free smartphone app. SOUNDWALK will remain accessible in San Francisco through June 2024.
