The interactive concerts of the Dutch trio Tin Men and the Telephone
(Tony Roe on the piano, Pat Cleaver on the bass, Borislav Petrov on the drums) allow the audience to influence the performance in different ways: they can vote for the band to play "weird", "psychedelic", "nervous" or to "take a break", send rhythms and melodies that the musicians use to improvise compositions on the spot, and many others. This happens through the Tinmendo
mobile app, which practically functions as a remote control.
In Bulgaria, the trio will present its new album World Domination, volume 1: FURIE – a fun and provocative look at populism and fake news in the form of a sci-fi, interactive music game. Through the Tinmendo
app, you will be able to vote for the abduction of leaders like Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin or Kim Jong-un who will be exiled on other planets by the alien peacekeeping force FURIE. ( FURIE is an abbreviation for Federal Union for Restoring Intergalactic Equilibrium.) You will also be invited to collectively compose a new world anthem that the musicians will play on the spot, and many other equally amsuing things. The music is a combination of acoustic jazz and futuristic electronic sounds composed on the basis of speeches by the populist leaders. You can hear some of the music and give kidnapping ideas now here: http://tinmendo.com/furie/
