Yesterday I did two performances in Times Square as part of the Urban Remix Times Square project. The first performance took place outdoors in the square, the second in the Times Square visitor's center in the evening. It was great to see the typical visitors to Times Square react to our performances. We got a lot of positive feedback. I was also very interested to see what I would come up with for this project, having performed a piece for the Atlanta Beltline Urban Remix last year, I really enjoyed the contrast in source material. All sounds on these recordings came from recordings made in Times Square, no additional synthesis or sampling is in there, just filtering, compression, delay, re-arrangement, etc. A little musique concrete.
