You’ve been waiting for the main event, and like we just reminded you, it’s finally here. But who wants to wait four more hours to see what’s happening in Chapel Hill? Here’s a sneak peek into round two of the Music Experiment including an exclusive interview with the show’s Creative Director, Roye Segal.
We’re assuming Chapel Hill is a madhouse at the moment. Given how many people waited on line for tickets, with some even camping out the night before, what’s the current mood?
The atmosphere is electric. The whole town is buzzing about the show. Word travels fast in small towns like these and the excitement is everywhere. Hundreds of fans lined up for hours for tickets, and it’s so great to witness how the Music Experiment is coming together in Chapel Hill.
Have you run into any fanatic Santigold followers yet? Was there a memorable moment that you can share?
We met a few local artists and musicians who are huge Santigold fans. They shared their artwork with us and we were blown away. So much so, we are now incorporating their work into the show!
Where is Santigold currently? Is she where you are? Has she done soundcheck yet? How many songs can we expect tonight?
She is about to start soundcheck in 15min. There is a 15-song set planned plus an encore.
Can you describe the scene at the venue right now?
Our crew is busy putting the finishing touches on all the artwork, lighting cues are being finalized, soundcheck is about to start, and fans are already tweeting photos of their costumes.
Aside from the city and the artist, what sets this show apart from the kick-off event in NYC?
This experience is completely different from NYC. There is such a special vibe about this town, and the love and passion for live music is really special. We are engaging with local theater companies, video artists, painters, dancers and they’ve all been contributing to the show. It is really a one-of-a-kind event brought to life with true Southern hospitality.
The last Music Experiment event was in a gorgeous synagogue…is there anything you can tell Chapel Hill-ites about the secret location? Even just a little hint?
Wish I could tell you, but that would ruin the surprise. Check out MusicExperiment.com first thing tomorrow to get exclusive photos from the entire experience.
Okay fine, the location is top secret, but can you give us a hit of what we should expect from tonight’s show in five words or less?
This show will be unforgettable!
