Anywhere, U.S.A. for musicians, video, and audience is an examination of popular culture and the mundane through the medium of audio-visual performance with audience interaction. Throughout the performance audience members are able to send instructions for the progression of the piece, in real time, via SMS text messaging on any capable cell phone. The audience can choose between a selection of video footage of locations in an American town (Walmart, an abandoned building, a street in a business district, and a field). Each video is connected to a musical pattern/composition to be played by a specific performer. Participants can also instruct the performers to play louder or softer.

Will it work?
