Here’s how we celebrated the longest day of the year: with the NY première of Mauricio Kagel’s Eine Brise, for 111 cyclists.
OK, there aren’t exactly 111 of us, but I think the piece sounds pretty great anyway. The above video (courtesy of master videographer Adrian Knight) actually shows two performances: one going each way up and down Cornelia St., which was closed off for the occasion.
I got to be the leader. One of the proudest performances of my life.
And on a related note, here’s a nice little article on NYC cyclists from the Wall Street Journal, of all places.
