Event description
111 people on bikes needed to perform ‘Eine Brise’ by Argentine avant-garde composer Mauricio Kagel

About this Event

Presented by P4P and C'mon Festival...

We're looking for 111 people on bikes to perform Eine Brise by Argentine avant-garde composer Mauricio Kagel.

Eine Brise translates as “a breeze” and is composed for 111 cyclists travelling in a pack (approximately 1.5 meters apart) while making 5 distinct sounds during their short journey:

  • Ringing bike bells
  • Whistling
  • Singing
  • Making a shhhhhh sound
  • Making a fluttering sound

Edmonton Symphony musician and artistic director of the C'mon Festival, Kathryn Macintosh will lead the "Bike Breeze" with signs located along the route to indicate what/when the different sounds are made.

Eine Brise takes 2 minutes to perform.

No musical experience necessary.

Interested cyclists, please RSVP on Eventbrite so we know how many folks are participating. We'll be sending out meet-up instructions/map via email.

We’re encouraging adults and youth only to participate in the choreographed performance
