Queen Beats

“QUEENS BEATS,” investigates how people are able to experience cultures, traditions, ethnic heritage, and the borough’s history through music, spoken word, local languages, and field sounds recorded in the neighborhoods along the 18 stops of the ‘International Express.’ QUEENS BEATS featured the interactive projects URBIS18 (a touch-screen interactive sound map), and IRTag (an interactive installation using barcode scanning technology).
