a subtlemob in Auckland
Event Date: Sat August 21 2010
[ try to remain invisible ]
‘as if it were the last time’ invites you to take part in a secret event this August.
You’ve seen the people freeze in train stations and the mass pillow fights, well this will be a more invisible experience . .
[CHECK OUT THE VIDEO OF PREVIOUS AUDIENCE RESPONSES - IT’S POSTED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE . . .]
If you register to take part in this event you’ll be invited to download an MP3 and turn up at a secret location to listen to the soundtrack at a specified time.
When you put on the headphones you’ll find yourself immersed in the cinema of everyday life. As the soundtrack swells people in the crowd around you will begin to re-enact the world you always see but often don’t notice.
Sometimes you’ll just be drifting and watching, but sometimes you’ll be following instructions on the soundtrack and creating the scenes yourself. Don’t worry, there will be nothing illegal or embarrassing, sometimes you might be re-enacting moments you’ve seen in films, sometimes you’ll just be playing yourself.
This is no requiem, this a celebratory slow dance, a chance to savour the world you live in, and to see it with fresh eyes.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO TAKE PART:
You need to come along with a partner (a friend, a relative, a lover.. or maybe just someone you want to get to know better), each of you will need to have your own device that can play MP3s (an iPod, a mobile phone etc.), two days before the event you’ll receive an email with a map of the location, the time of the event and a link to the sound file. Then you just turn up and press play at the same time as everyone else.
Info will be posted via Facebook a couple of days before the event -
