HERE ARE A FEW OF OUR TOURS

BRONX HIP HOP

Walk to the beat, listen to the rhythm, feel the heat of music vibrating through the soles of your feet. Learn the vibe, learn to rhyme, appreciate your time in ’da hood. MC your way past Afrika Bambaataa’s aura, rappin’ out hot joints, old-school joints, when rap was not yet hip-hop and people fought battles with words, to the beat of gunshots heard. A deconstructed neighborhood, a reinvention as the birthplace of the most influential music today. Revisit secret block parties and scratch contests, and if you dare turn your back to the Bronx, feast on the sweeping view at the river’s edge and you will make it out alive.

BRONX GRAFFITI

For some, it is called vandalism, for most, it is art, yet graffiti art has cemented its place in urban culture, our culture. Appreciate it, recognize the styles, learn what tagging really stands for, where it comes from. The 5 train will lead you to this neighborhood, which once was avoided. Walk past old-school music stores and barbershops, and indulge in art, graffiti art, your own street museum.

BRONX YANKEES

Take the 4 train to “the house that Ruth built,” where home runs are a prerequisite, a Mecca to all baseball fans. Have a hot dog, a soda, walk around the stadium and hear the crowd cheer, watch the waves, jump out of your seat when Roger Maris hits his 61st homerun. Be a baseball fan, be part of America, of America’s history.

At the Central Academy of Drama, in a Beijing long since past, a young girl and her classmate perform "Love in a Fallen City," a tragic tale about a couple whose fate is linked by war. Now a grown woman and a successful actress,Gong Li returns to tell us of a time steeped in history, when she and her young companion were unable to separate their character's destinies from their own.

Characters from Beijing's past return to tell stories somewhere in between the real and the imagined.

LOUIS VUITTON: HONG KONG

Actress Shu Qi takes us on a colorful journey, wandering deep into the heart of Hong Kong. Behind the ultra-modern landscape, hidden beneath the shadows of progress and limitless skyscrapers lies another world...and a peculiar love story. Seduced by his charms, Shu Qi follows a handsome, if mysterious, young man on a path that leads us through secret gardens and hidden passageways. Along the way, she relates a marvelous and tragic story. Peeling away the layers of perception, he seems to cause time to slow down, offering Shu Qi a voyage conflicted with beauty and chaos, much like her own feelings towards the man. A man she's known so briefly... who fades away just as she starts to fall in love with him. As she asks herself if this man is real or not, she remembers how Hong Kong can be full of ghosts.

LOUIS VUITTON: BEIJING

Actor and director Joan Chen takes us through the neighborhood of her youth, Shanghai's French Concession of the 1960's. Walking through the tangled alleys of Shanghai's old quarters, we relive the memories of her childhood and hear her rousing tale of forbidden love. As a teenager, Joan Chen's family moved to the United States just as the Cultural Revolution was taking hold. Many of her friends had been sent to the countryside. Now she returns, not only to revisit her beloved city,but to answer questions that she hasn't been able to shake in all her years abroad. A bittersweet romance rendered impossible by tricks of fate. A journey through alleyways brimming with the magic of everyday life.

Our services range from multi-track sound installations to customized “audio branding” and tailor-made mixes.

Soundwalk has quickly become the leading audio tour company, producing cutting-edge audio guides in which the listener is able to step into the life of a narrator as they guide you through their neighborhood streets and local hang-outs. SoundTOURS mix fiction and reality in a cinematic experience giving the listener the impression of actually being in a film.

Soundwalk has created over 40 walking tours—over 20 in New York alone: from the birth of Hip Hop in the Bronx with Jazzy Jay and Afrika Bambaataa to a memorial walk in Ground Zero with famed author Paul Auster. We recently completed a three-city project for Louis Vuitton in China, featuring Gong Li, Joan Chen, and Shu Qi and a unique sound experience for the Chanel Mobile Art Container, featuring the voice of Jeanne Moreau. We also produced the official Sony Pictures "Da Vinci Code" tour of the Louvre with Jean Reno. Our latest release is a unique, guided audio experience set in Midtown Manhattan’s Bryant Park, narrated by Matthew Broderick.
