New York videomakers cdza have created the interactive Human Jukebox, a unique way to make money for buskers.
Operating out of New York, the group behind the idea headed out onto the streets of Brooklyn with a violin and a double bass, along with a handful of melodies ranging from Bach to Lady Gaga.Each song was designated its own labeled jar and passersby could change what the duo played by placing change into the corresponding receptacle.In order to make things fun, every time someone donated the duo instantly changed track.There were also jars offering ‘fast forward’, ‘slow down’ and ‘a capella’, while a mystery option labeled with a question mark brought out a saxophonist for a surprise performance.
