About the Project

Throughout the month of June 1997, Creative Time presented its annual music extravaganza, Music in the Anchorage. Staged under the Brooklyn Bridge, the concerts and performances brought the sounds of renowned American and international DJs to one of the most unusual venues in New York City.


On any given evening one could hear Ben Neill play his digitally enhanced Mutantrumpet; listen to Scanner—the self-proclaimed “telephone terrorist”—integrate cell phone conversations into his musical mixes; or dance to DJ Spooky’s phono-collages of retro-futuristic “ambient chaos” and dance beats.
