Composition: Kato Hideki JP/NYC
Conductor: Pete Drungle NYC
Singer: Helga Davis NYC
Q: What is it about?
A: „The Sirens of NYC“ is inspired by the virtuosic play of sirens in the streets of New York City. By giving the siren players the context of an orchestra, their art will be brought to the next level.
Q: Who will play?
A: Policemen, firefighters and ambulance drivers. Because they know their instrument best.
Q: What will happen during the performance?
A: It will be a choreographed performance of about 20‘ in total, led by a conductor, including siren sounds, a singer and emergency lights.
Q: Will it be loud?
A: We are interested in the musical qualities of the sirens, not the noise. Therefore we’ll muffle the Sirens and provide earplugs for the musicians and the audience.
Q: How many cars will be involved?
A: We are planning to form an orchestra with about 20 sirens. We don‘t mind to increase that number.
