When idle hotel guests are left to their own devices...
Aloft hotels in New York have partnered up with indie music blog Pitchfork to create a a "video surveillance" live music series, featuring different bands performing in the rooms. While this is conceptually very reminiscent of Yotel's 100 Under 2 Festival, there is one big difference: you can't actually attend the performances in the hotel.
Instead, everything takes place on the screen. In fuzzy, distorted images—so you feel like you're spying on a private rehearsal, which is actually the opposite of a performance. Kinda cool!
