SOUNDWALK Audio Experience in Fairmount Park

5201 Parkside Avenue Fairmount Park Philadelphia, PA 19131

Ellen Reid SOUNDWALK is an immersive audio experience tailor-made for Fairmount Park. Co-commissioned by the Mann Center for the Performing Arts in association with the Fairmount Park Conservancy, and recorded by musicians of The Philadelphia Orchestra and the SOUNDWALK Ensemble, Ellen Reid’s compositions were meticulously programmed for Fairmount Park and the Mann’s campus, and can be experienced via a GPS-enabled mobile app. SOUNDWALK is free to the public and was created with social distancing guidelines in mind.

Participants can experience SOUNDWALK by downloading the free Ellen Reid SOUNDWALK mobile app and listening to the compositions which were customized to reflect the individual journey of each participant through nature. Movement around Fairmount Park triggers musical cells which were carefully crafted to harmonize with the landscape and attractions. The experience is guided by the listener: the path you choose dictates the music you hear, and no two visits will be exactly the same.
