I received good responses to yesterday's flash mob video, so here's one more. With a smile at 1:31 that lights up the day.
In April 2012 Copenhagen Phil (Sjællands Symfoniorkester) surprised the passengers in the Copenhagen Metro by playing Griegs Peer Gynt. The flash mob was created in collaboration with Radio Klassisk. All music was performed and recorded in the metro...
The sound: The Copenhagen Metro is very quiet and the recording you hear is where the train is standing still. That's why the recording you hear is so clean and crisp - and the sound is actually surprisingly good in the Copenhagen metro. We did this deliberately because we feel that a good sound experience is vital when trying to portray the actual experience that day.
Yep, a great smile! I also liked the little girl @ 1:49...ReplyDelete
And the woman at 1:00 and the lady at 1:06. :-)Delete
Fabulously beautiful music. Brings a smile to my morning!
PS ~ you might want to think about putting a "Flash Mob" link in your side bar! I love them too ~ReplyDelete
I've actually thought about that, but I'm trying not to get too many categories. Right now I think they're all in video-music, but of course greatly diluted there.ReplyDelete
That would be a memorable experience, never forgotten. The one older lady had tears in her eyes. :)ReplyDelete
This older lady had tears in her eyes too ... Thanks for sharing this Minnesotastan ...ReplyDelete
I don't like crowds, but the possibility of a Flash Mob performance almost makes me want to find one! This is wonderful.ReplyDelete
They really need to come up with a new name for this phenomenon. Here in Baltimore "flashmobs" usually end up in looting and people being stabbed.ReplyDelete
I agree, and I didn't even like using the phrase "flash mob" for this kind of activity. I've seen the term "smart mob" used, but I hope other terminology will evolve to distinguish the subtypes of mobs.Delete
Beautiful! I wonder how feasible this is in the NYC subway system, as many trains are OLD and don't run nearly as smoothly. (I fear for the oboe reeds and violin bows) (but for all I know, something like this has already been done here)ReplyDelete
