9/20 - Participate in Improv Everywhere's MP3 Experiment 11 - 2014!

What is the MP3 Experiment?

The Mp3 Experiment is participatory public event created by Improv Everywhere. We stage a new Mp3 Experiment in New York each year and also tour the project regularly to college campuses festivals around the world.
Here’s how it works: we put an original mp3 file online (usually around 45 minutes long) that people add to their mobile devices. Participants then synchronize their watches to an atomic clock on our website, head out to the same public location, and blend in with others. At the predetermined time, everyone presses play. Hilarity ensues as participants carry out ridiculous, coordinated instructions delivered to their headphones via narrator “Steve” and everyone else tries to figure out what the hell is going on.

Here are the full details for our Mp3 Experiment taking place in New York City this weekend as part of the BEAT Festival.
Date: Saturday, September 20
Location: Fort Greene, Brooklyn (Specific starting areas below)
Time: The event is happening twice, at 2 PM and 6 PM. Please pick the time that suits you best. The event lasts around 50 minutes.
Wear: Dress entirely in a single color (other than black or white.) At minimum wear matching clothing. Bonus points for shoes, socks, accessories, etc. in the same color.
- An uninflated balloon (any color)
