My Experience: MP3 Experiment by Improv Everywhere



 

For my experience, I was tasked to head to Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn to partake in the 11th annual MP3 Experiment, hosted by Improv Everywhere. We were supplied with an mp3 in advance, and asked not to listen to it. Thousands of people gathered just outside of the park, and at exactly 6pm, we all hit play on our phones, and listened to the 52-minute recording. A ‘voice of god’ like character named Steve asks us to do several things, from playing a game of ‘red light, green light’ to playing freeze tag, to blowing up and throwing our balloons. The theme of this recording was Festival of Colors, as everyone was asked to dress in a color other than black or white. I didn’t know it was going to be random themed, so I dressed in grey, but I fit in with the blue people fairly well.

I’m maybe a bit old and ‘too cool’ to really get into some of these things: marching down the sidewalk acting like I’m in a concert band, acting like a secret agent storming through the trees, or playing follow the leader while dancing goofily. But I did really enjoy the experience. It was really neat to see the amount of people in New York willing to meet up for a totally random one-hour that closely resembles camp activities. But a few of the highlight, like a game of ‘keep up’ with everyone’s balloons sure does look pretty cool with a couple thousand people hanging out in a park.

It was recommended we refrain from taking photos or video, so I didn’t take much (and if I tried taking video, the mp3 would stop playing, and I got behind on the recording). I sourced some of the pictures taken from the event, and combined them with a few of mine and a video I took at the very end of the experiment to edit together this brief highlight reel. You can hear Steve and some of his instructions, and experience what it was like to be us for those 52 minutes.

    Thanks for your post. Another factor is that being photographer includes not only problems in recording award-winning photographs and also hardships in getting the best photographic camera suited to your needs and most especially problems in maintaining the grade of your camera. This is very accurate and apparent for those photographers that are in to capturing the actual nature’s eye-catching scenes : the mountains, the forests, the wild and the seas. Visiting these exciting places definitely requires a dslr camera that can meet the wild’s unpleasant conditions.
