The Copenhagen Subway Gets Mobbed!

Most days feel ordinary.

Not this day. Not for the people who took this metro…

 

“I smiled back and I thought how incredible that was, that they would find the time to smile. There was goodness in the world still, even if you couldn’t always see it.”

~ Jenny Valentine

 

How to make good news:

In April 2012 Copenhagen Phil (Sjællands Symfoniorkester) surprised the passengers in the Copenhagen Metro by playing Griegs Peer Gynt. The flash mob was created in collaboration with Radio Klassisk http://radioklassisk.dk/.  All music was performed and recorded in the metro.

The sound: The Copenhagen Metro is very quiet and the recording you hear is where the train is standing still. That’s why the recording you hear is so clean and crisp—and the sound is actually surprisingly good in the Copenhagen metro. We did this deliberately because we feel that a good sound experience is vital when trying to portray the actual experience that day. Further to the main recording, when the train was standing still, the recordings from the cameras was, as far as possible, mixed into the sound.

 

It looks like flash mobs are already turning into regular Danish fun.

From a year ago…

 

And this reminds me that…
