Music Of The Sun (MOTS) is a mobile, solar- and bicycle-powered outdoor improvisational ambient music series that happens for the love of Minneapolis, public space and art infused social interaction. Five times throughout July and August 2014, The Eclectic Ensemble will load a full range PA system and instruments into three custom-built bicycle trailers and pedal to various metro-area locations to perform for free to the public. Performances happen any time during daylight hours, last 60 minutes, and can occur on any day of the week. Music Of The Sun performances are weather sensitive and announced three to five days in advance. Rain postpones performances. To be informed of MOTS performances you can become a fan of The Eclectic Ensemble on Facebook or, to receive updates via email, email firstname.lastname@example.org stating your interest.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
