Traffic is a piece for an infinite number of boomboxes playing coordinated
tapes to be carried through the streets of the lower east side, the walk
ending approximately a half an hour later at the Angel Orensanz Center
on Norfolk Street.
The composer will make available 30 boomboxes and tapes, but participants
are strongly encouraged to bring their own boomboxes, for which extra
tapes will be provided, and arrive at the Avenue A at 8th Street entrance
to the park by 7:45. Anyone wishing to take part and carry a boombox can
email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 212-227-6255.
Shadow Traffic will be part of the MATA (Music at the Anthology) Festival,
taking place at the Orensanz Center. While admission won't be charged
in the park, those arriving at Orensanz and who wish to stay for the remainder
of the evening's program will be asked for voluntary donations to benefit
radio station WNYC's rebuilding effort.
