ABOUT THE Fazzino RIDE
THE Fazzino RIDE has been designed as a visually choreographed piece of kinetic art that features new interactive content and street performances allowing the passengers to view New York City through the beloved 3-D artist’s whimsical, original and amusing eyes from their front row stadium-style seats that offer an exhilarating 4-D view.
Mr.Fazzino has created a special design wrap for the motor coach making THE Fazzino RIDE a 75-minute moving work of interactive art. Written and directed by Richard Humphrey, THE Fazzino RIDE features original content and videos of Fazzino’s universally recognized New York 3-D paintings that jump to life on the forty interactive screens aboard. THE Fazzino RIDE also features original music composed by Patrick Noth and a new cast of specialty performers who entertain along the 4.2 mile journey through mid-town Manhattan. Sound has been designed by Brett Jarvis. The dazzling futuristic lighting design is by Ryan O’Gara. The state-of-the-art video content has been designed by Rodger Acosta. Motion Graphics and Animations are by Beehive. The Fazzino Creative is by Leslie Meisel and Daryl Embry.
“Part tour, part performance art, THE RIDE is a tour bus on steroids, with three rows of stadium-style seats that face the sidewalk, surround sound, high-tech lighting, TV screens and huge windows that continue onto the ceiling to let you see all the way to the top of the Chrysler Building. As the tour crisscrosses Midtown, snakes through Times Square, heads up to Columbus Circle and back through Times Square to 42nd and Eighth Avenue it encounters performers along the route; a girl spontaneously tap-dances on the sidewalk; a Times Square ball-drop reveler wishes you a happy new year in midsummer; a delivery guy breaks into a break dance; a ballerina circles Columbus Circle. Kids will like the unexpected, scanning the streetscape for who might be next to step forward and perform. Adults should arrange to catch ‘THE Fazzino RIDE,’ which is wrapped in the work of 3-D pop artist Charles Fazzino and features his commentary on why the city that never sleeps is a constant inspiration.”
