Portland Bike Ensemble

A rather interesting twist on the musical nature of ordinary things. A wonderful group of intelligent and eclectic people who's instruments are their preferred mode of transportation: the bicycle. With the use of contact microphones in various places on their bikes, clever manipulation via hand and everyday objects (spoons, forks, tools, stuff) they flood the room with a crescendo of sound. At moments, it is pained and deliberate, others are quite moving. It's worth seeing and you can sleep soundly knowing that their art has a very low environmental impact, even while maintaining a high entertainment impact. http://cosmicjoke.com/PortlandBikeEnsemble.html
