Come try the app Compass Song in Times Square on the Equinox!

What: Artists/composers Mendi + Keith Obadike created Compass Song, a free sound-walk app for Times Square. When launching the app you will hear the bustling sounds of Times Square re-performed vocally, as if the city were singing to you. As you walk through the Times Square area you will periodically hear a voice accompany your wandering with poems about searching for freedom, verses from a song, stories about navigating the city, and cross-cultural myths about the cardinal directions (north, east, south, and west).

Where: Please bring your smart phones (iOS or Android) and headphones to Times Square and try out Compass Song, March 20th at noon. The artists will be at Duffy Square (in front of the red stairs between 46 & 47th street) to answer questions and guide you through downloading & launching the free app.

Get The App: Compass Song can be downloaded for free from Apple’s App Store or Google’s Play Store.
