TIM AND PUMA MIMI - Perspective
Imagine there’s a little japanese woman, in a small appartement in Tokyo, singing into her laptop,
getting live transmitted via skype to new york,
video-projected to a wall and amplified to the music produced and performed by Tim.
It’s not a dream! It’s the f**ing virtual-reality.
Yes: call it globalization, call it Pop 2.0, call it whatever… it’s not an experiment, it’s not a gimmick-it’s a must!
Business Mimi has less than 7 days holiday a year, there’s no way to make a tour or something.
Her Boss doesn’t even know, that Mimi has concerts in New York before she comes to work in Tokyo!… update: Mimi quit her job half a year ago, but it s not aloud to stay longer then 3 months in a row in Switzerland, every 3 months she goes back to japan… and skype again.
