Audience Juke Box
We commissioned the Bays (thebays.com) to create an interactive improvisation based around the notion of a jukebox (Audience DJ). The audience could vote within a framework with 12 playlists of 4 tracks each, playlists were themed conceptually (e.g. “Bankers Bonus” or “Seventies Saturnalia”) and by tempo. The Bays chose which playlist to use but then used the highest voted track as the basis of their improvisation, band members viewed onstage screens to monitor the voting and to select playlists. An overhead projection kept the audience informed as to what was happening.
