CicLAvia has partnered with the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs and Dutch Culture to commission a sonic “walkscape” for pedestrian participants to enjoy on March 22 and beyond. Dutch artists, Rob van Rijswijk and Jeroen Strijbos, have created an interactive soundscape composition that brings together the past and present of the San Fernando Valley in one unique iPhone app that will debut at the Metro Presents CicLAvia – The Valley and will be available for individuals to enjoy for years to come.
Strijbos and van Rijswijk have created a soundscape on their Walk With Me app (available for free on Apple IOS devices) by blending interviews, music, historic sound clips, natural sounds and “live noise” into an interactive walking art installation that reveals itself differently for each user. As people walk the CicLAvia route their phone’s GPS will access data points that will allow them to hear an evolving soundscape unique to their CicLAvia experience.
