Floppy Bunny Ears
Rather than bemoan the lack of attendance, how about if being one of the intrepid few in the audience became a bragging right? Concerts could be framed as an escape from the everyday where refreshing audio adventures crack open the surface of sound to delve deep into a listener's consciousness. Consider the repertoire of a new music concert as Twilight Zone episode after Twilight Zone episode. Programs that encourage surprise and investigation are audience favorites.
Help already-existing audience leaders attract their friends to these terrifying unknown performances of:
- shouting contests in made-up languages
- fluorescent lights scraping on electric guitars
- double string quartets playing slowly shifting drones
- and floppy bunny ears
