RPM / BLINK / Wheels by P. Spadine, Merche Blasco, & Nissim Schaul

This musical trilogy encircles Prospect Park with the sounds of tuned bicycle bells. Seasoned and casual cyclists are invited to perform three pieces for bicycle bells: Merche Blasco’s “BLINK” from Make Music Winter 2013, Nissim Schaul’s “Wheels” from MMW 2014, and this year’s premiere “RPM” by P. Spadine.

Riders will travel through Prospect Park, following scores transmitted from lead bikes using special helmets embedded with lights, which will cue bicycle bells of different pitches. Color-coded bicycle bells will be distributed to the first 50 participants at the beginning of the parade.

The parade begins at 4:00 pm at Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza; all are invited to join with their bicycles.

Produced in association with the Prospect Park Alliance.
