What if you could visit another city, and for one hour, see it through the eyes of a local?
That’s the idea of the Seattle Audissey. Join DJ Michele on this mobile walking tour through her hometown, where her voice guides listeners through the story – and alleys – of Seattle. Part audio tour, part soundscape, this tour is timed perfectly to synchronize with the visitor’s own footsteps. For one hour, you become a Seattle local.
“See this alley coming up on your right,” whispers DJ Michele. “Yeah. Let’s turn and walk down there.”
Along the hour-long audio guide, several local Seattlites make an appearance:
- Mimi Gates of the Seattle Art Museum explains the mystery of the massive sculpture “Hammering Man”
- James Rasmussen, a Duwamish tribal leader, recites a drum-fueled ode to Chief Seattle
- Author and journalist Erika Langley tells the story of how she reported on The Lusty Lady stripclub – and ended up dancing there
You’ll also step inside an anarchist bookstore, hear a firsthand account of the WTO riots of 1999, and get an insider’s tour of the world famous Pike Place Market.
