Collaborative music project by Chris Shimojima where a variety of New York subway musicians perform together in real time at different locations, yet all are connected and conducted over wifi-enabled devices - video embedded below:
We searched New York City for a variety of subway musicians to unite for a live experiment. We stationed them at 9 different subway stops with wifi and had them simultaneously connect to composer Ljova in Bryant Park. He led them in a performance of “Signal Strength”, an original piece he wrote for them.
"If you see a woman working hard who is successful -who doesn’t stop until she reaches her goal, who is strong and has wishes and dreams she wants to fulfill, and works hard everyday- you label them a diva. But if you see a man doing that, you’re like ‘He’s incredible, he’s an amazing businessman’."
