Made with the Palimpsest Toolkit © Augmented Mountain

This collaborative project brings together digital bricoleur Liubo Borissov, award-winning composer Konrad Kaczmarek and digital artist and sound designer Eric Rieper to superimpose new sights and sounds on the streets and parks of Lower Manhattan. Download the app, take the trip, and experience this historic neighborhood with new eyes and ears.

The PAVE application is available for free at the iTunes store and supports the following devices: iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5, iPad 2 with Cellular, iPad Mini with Cellular, iPad Retina with Cellular running iOS 6 or later. Download the app here.

The Peripatetic Audio Visual Ensemble is a site-specific interactive augmented reality composition, which unfolds in space and time. You can participate by joining one of the scheduled performances during the 2013 River to River Festival in New York or visit the site on your own time. The work is best experienced as an ensemble, so be sure to bring your friends. You will need devices running iOS 6 or later with camera and GPS capability. Make sure your batteries are fully charged. The experience lasts between half an hour to an hour depending on your pace.

The PAVE application takes the user on a guided walk through ten sites. When the application starts, you will see the camera view of your device. Pressing the info (i) button will give you instructions to the next site. If you get lost, just tilt the device slightly down and pan around — a bright orange line will appear leading you to the next site. If you are really lost, you can also refer to the map below.

Each site is marked by a large virtual sculpture. As you approach the sculpture, you will hear music associated with the site. A visual overlay will appear enabling you to interact with the music.

Depending on where you are, the buttons, sliders and switches will have a different effect.

Explore, listen, play, and become a voice in the ensemble.
