Decent idea for the Standard Bank Joy of Jazz Festival next month in Johannesburg, even if some post-production sound was added. Hey, almost all musicians cheat. From the agency press note:
Jazz is back in the city. Onlookers were treated to an open air, freestyle jazz session recently, all played by pigeons. To promote the festival, TBWAHuntLascaris and production company Hey!Fever set up a full jazz ensemble in Pigeon Square, Johannesburg, South Africa. Seeds and popcorn were scattered over the instruments to attract the feathered musos. It wasn’t long before the sounds of pigeon jazz filled the air.
I’d like to see New York City do this idea on subway platforms, but with rats. Rats are cooler than pigeons.
