Make Music New York Winter 2015

Join the Prospect Park Alliance and Make Music New York for a musical ride around the Park. Seasoned and casual cyclists alike will perform three composed pieces, scored specifically for bicycle bells and cued by bicycling conductors wearing special helmets with colored lights. This year's pieces are: Merche Blasco’s “BLINK” from Make Music Winter 2013, Nissim Schaul’s “Wheels” from Make Music Winter 2014 and this year’s premiere “RPM” by P. Spadine.

As cyclists travel around the Drive, splitting up and joining packs, the chiming of their bells will create a truly dynamic soundscape. Bicycle bells will be distributed to the first 50 participants at the beginning of the parade, but all are encouraged to ride along and enjoy the music.
