Call for Playlists for The Great Bike Powered Light Show Dance Party

Have a “Great Bike Powered Light Show Dance Party” to your 20-40 minute playlist at Figment New York! I’m looking for playlists that people can dance to. Any genre of music or noise that is more or less all ages appropriate and has some sort of rhythm will do.

There are a few different ways to do this:

1. put together your playlist on itunes and burn a cd (http://support.apple.com/kb/TA38263) then mail it to: David Aronson, 477 FDR Dr. #M1307 New York, NY or bring it with you to Figment. You can also bring your playlist on your phone or mp3 player and we’ll just plug it in. 

2. down load a trial of WireTap at http://www.ambrosiasw.com/utilities/wiretap/  then play your playlist from itunes while recording with wire tap. Upload the recorded file to my drop box at: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zspakb1e9mbhxqd/hI1wIkRt2F

3. use a DJ program like Traktor, Abelton or my favorite DJay for Mac (available on the mac app store or at: http://www.algoriddim.com/djay-mac/download) to record your live DJ mix and upload an audio file to: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zspakb1e9mbhxqd/hI1wIkRt2F

Remember 20-40 minutes! 

Call for playlists now open!

I am happy to announce that the call for audio mixes for my next work, The Great Bike Powered Light Show Dance Party!  is now open. Mixes may be of any kind of music. Mixes can combine genres, tempos, popular, or original tunes. I only ask that they be a mix of several songs. The preferred length is one half hour. However longer mixes will be considered. B sides are also welcome.

The Great Bike Powered Light Show Dance Party!  Steers new technology away from alienation and towards real world, carbon free participation!

Bikers crank power to a boombox and a projector. Music contributed by local musicians plays as digital imagery beams onto the very bodies of the dancer/participants. The visuals follow the shape and movement of the participants, paying attention to every gesture and transforming in reaction to movement and sound.

To submit your mix, mail a cd to:
