"...reaching out to 100 of the city's most influential individuals and having them be so receptive to what we're trying to build has been incredible."
How have you guys prepped for the show?
We wanted to create a new way of using sounds in the street. We placed a couple of Playbuttons around the city. Places on Lafayette, Forysth, in front of the New Museum, and this dope interactive mural designed by Jason Woodside on Kenmare street.
Opening night is Tuesday, what kind of turn out are you expecting?
We're expecting around 500 people to come out opening night, but since space at the New Museum is limited, we'll have to see what's up at the door. The event is private, but the New Museum is selling 100 tickets to the public (Click here to purchase). The tickets are actually a blank Playbutton and we hook you up with stickers from each of the 100 participants and entrance to the show.
Since there's only a couple of nachos left and I plan on eating them before you do, let's wrap this up with one final question. What's been the coolest part about getting everyone together?
Most of the artists in the show have agents, an assistant, a label rep, project manager... it depends on the industry, but reaching out to 100 of the city's most influential individuals and having them be so receptive to what we're trying to build has been incredible.
CNNCTD+100 Playbutton group show opens at the New Museum on Tuesday, May 1 at 7pm.
