Scattered New York Subway Musicians Perform Together In Real-Time
Collaborative music project 'Signal Strength' connected several musicians using wi-fi enabled devices
‘Signal Strength‘ is a collaborative music project by NYC-based filmmaker and video editor Chris Shimojima. Connecting several New York subway musicians in various locations in real-time, wi-fi enabled devices were used to allow a composer to conduct this unique performance from Bryant Park.
Described as “the first NYC wi-fi orchestra,” the project shows how technology can connect the world and create opportunities for collaborative creation. The production team searched New York City for a variety of subway musicians who would unite and perform together for a live experiment.
