Thousands of people listening to synchronized instructions participate in an audio adventure in New York’s Brooklyn Bridge Park. Full Story: SUBSCRIBE: JOIN US:

For our latest mission, thousands of people followed secret, synchronized instructions delivered via headphones in Brooklyn Bridge Park. The crowd of around 2,000 people created real-life Instagram Boomerangs, cheered for random joggers, and made music together with drum sticks and household objects, surprising the New Yorkers and tourists in the park. The drum sticks were generously donated by Promark, and the event was a partnership with Make Music New York. This was all part of our our fifteenth annual Mp3 Experiment event.

A huge thanks to the amazing community of people that come out to be a part of this event every year. So many of you came up to us to tell us how many years you've been doing it, or how far you traveled to be there (some from out of the country!) We're so proud of what a diverse, joyful celebration the Mp3 Experiment has become. As silly as the project is, it's life-affirming to be in a crowd of strangers, all smiling, laughing, and supporting each other. We support this free event by touring it to schools, festivals, and conferences around the world. If you want to hire us to stage one for you, get in touch -
