Listening to Abu Dhabi

room 13 ECHOES

Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Welcome to Listening to Abu Dhabi.

Please begin the walk at the North-Eastern end ("Introduction") and move at a comfortable pace in a straight line towards the start of the beach ("2100"). If you have GPS on, you should be able to press 'start' and go through the walk without looking at your phone.

I recommend beginning the walk 25 minutes before the sunset Maghrib call to prayer. Please use headphones or earphones while walking, but be careful of your surroundings. You can walk along either side of the path, but I recommend keeping close to the water.

------ Listening to Abu Dhabi maps soundscape compositions along the Abu Dhabi Corniche. It transports listeners through the past to the future, imagining changing soundscapes to explore how our relationship to the city will change as sea levels and temperatures rise in the future. Please contact me at ks3586@nyu.edu if you would like to know more about the project.
