I just caught up with our friend Jenni Hong. She’s busy busy busy, but graciously took the time out of her schedule to chat about her use of our favorite wireless speakers, Tubular.
Jenni is the artistic director and choreographer of Jenni Hong Dance, based in New York City. I don’t know much about dance – frankly I’m a hazard out there on the dance floor, and I step on a lot of toes – so it was great to learn about a gifted performer pursuing her craft. In mid-February, Jenni and her dance company enjoyed a week-long residency at historic Kirkland Farm, located in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley. This place has a rich history as an artist’s haven dating back to the 1930s; definitely check out the link, it’s pretty interesting, and awfully scenic!
Anywho, the company rehearsed and developed new routines in the various cool places on the farm, getting creative by taking advantage of the “found” spaces.
Like I said, I don’t know much about dance, but I do know it’s best to do it to music. And how are performance artists like Jenni Hong and her company going to blast out the tunes in a convenient and ultra-portable way, so as not to hinder the creative process? Enter Tubular Wireless Speakers.
“The portability of Tubular was fantastic when we were doing site-specific work,” Jenni told us, “whether it was dancing around in a random staircase, a horse barn, a large bath tub, or other places, because we could just carry it wherever we go, indoors or outdoors.”
Jenni continued: “The ability to control songs played on Tubular with my iPhone was also very helpful when we were working in various corners of the big house we were in. We could just leave Tubular in one place and deal with volume and switching tracks from wherever we were.”
Jenni pretty much summed it all up. Tubular is compact and wireless, and that makes it very portable. Plus, it’s Bluetooth-capable, and that means you can use your Bluetooth music player as your remote control. When you want to enjoy music with friends (or in Jenni’s case, enjoy music AND do work), and you don’t want a lot of hassle, Tubular Wireless Speakers are your answer. Thanks a lot, Jenni, and best of luck to Jenni Hong Dance!
