JUNGLE-IZED is an immersive audio experience set in Times Square that transports you to the heart of the Amazon rainforest, encouraging a conversation with nature and heightening awareness of the environmental impact of climate change.
A creation of SOUNDWALK COLLECTIVE in collaboration with David de Rothschild, featuring Amazon rainforest sound environments recorded by Francisco López.
Developed along the 73rd meridian connecting Times Square NYC with the Amazon, JUNGLE-IZED creates a jungle-to-concrete jungle link by re-inviting Nature into the city, revealing the absence of what was once here where we stand, and has completely vanished.
An intimate experience bringing us back to the sound of our origins, Nature being the womb of our creation.
Start the App, touch the screen, plug in your headphones and begin a journey through an interactive sound installation that superimposes the Amazon ecosystem upon a 8-square block area of Times Square. You can walk between 43rd and 47th Streets, 6th and 8th Avenues. Each street represents a different time of the day or the night in the Amazon sound environment. You will move deeper into the night as you walk North, and deeper into the rainforest as you walk East or West, until you will find the sound of the Amazon river, the boundary of your experience.
In partnership with Times Square Arts, Audio-Technica and CXA-ART. Mobile App powered by Motive.io, in collaboration with the GPS Museum Lab. Premium audio listening experiences available through Audio-Technica headphones.
Jungle-Ized Lite lets you experience the sounds of the Amazon Rainforest in the streets of Times Square.
