The Remote Control by Tin Men and the Telephone allows the audience to directly participate and interact with the band during live performances.
Their interactive show is an experience for many senses. The basis is and remains the musical qualities of the band with its very own sound and often experimental repertoire. The Remote Control is used to pioneer new ways of empowering music. The audience can influence the music by directing the musicians, send messages, control visual elements that appear on a big screen on the stage, participate in games, or even make music themselves that will be sent to the musicians who will instantly improvise with that material.
With their app, Tin Men and the Telephone have found an answer to the most important questions within the dramatic arts: how do you continue to attract new audiences, how do you involve your audience in the show and how do you make the audience enthusiastic about complex innovative art forms without making any artistic concessions?
