**POWER BIKE PARADE
**SAT OCT 24 (our last ride!)
**6:30 - 7:30pm
Power Bike Parade is a bike-powered electronic orchestra that demonstrates the use of an alternative power source by converting the kinetic energy of pedaling a bike into electricity used to create a festival of electro-acoustic music and glittering LED lights. The two-rider parade takes this everyday act of riding a bicycle, and expands it into a visual and sonic spectacle, re-appropriating the act as a performance and a venue for expression.
The bikes are outfitted with contact microphones, speakers, and custom bike instruments to amplify the sounds the bike makes during a ride, while LED lights are mounted on the bikes to light our way, amplifying and transforming the bike ride itself into a performance.
Big thanks to Brooklyn Bike & Board for material & logistical support!
