      Officials have just given a provisional approval for a Kite Powered Music Event at FreshKills Park (landfill recovered as a new super-park in New York City (Staten Island). This event would likely occur in the Spring of 2014. No doubt the musical talent will be as AWEsome as the enabling tech.

      Recall that FreshKills has a mandate to explore green energy and cultural initiatives. Last year, LAGI got several kite-based submissions for monumental environmental Art at this location. 

      Organizers seek to raise a half-million dollars for up-front expenses, with most of that for custom kite tech and electrical gear. Wind availability will be maximized by flashmobs acting on weather forecasts. Human power (bike generators) will provide back-up power. DIY participants will be encouraged.

      This is the first public notice of this major AWE demonstration. Technical study and planning is now gearing-up. Anyone who can help in any way is welcome to join (reply to this email). Many thanks to the amazing Patrice Maillard and Util for getting this historic musical event rolling.
