TheRickshawLive

Nov 23, 2020 | Builder, Our Purpose

My name is Tim Ryschon and I conceived and launched TheRickshawLiveTM  as a launch vehicle for stars.

Performance stars.

The problem stars face is motion.  Motion while they perform.  Motion across a plaza, around a city block, or over a valley trail.  Motion is a problem typically because it challenges performing technique.  Its also a big engineering challenge.

If a stage could be developed that was self-contained, stable, and small enough to keep the performers in close contact with their afficianados, a new high in appreciation could be reached.

My solution for this novel live performance platform consists of a state of the art mobile soundstage, locomoted by a single bicycle pedaler.

The hardware platform for this stage consists of a hyper-modified, patented bicycle pedicab that can transport 4 musicians while amplifying their voices and instruments to the passing sidewalk audience.

Video monitors facing the sidewalk and rear of the carriage continuously project messaging and live video, while wireless LED lighting illuminates the performance.

The primary mission is to transport live performers through non-traditional venues such as alleys, along-side sidewalks, fountain plazas, ocean-front side walks, and trails.  Although musicians are  the most frequent occupants of our stage, performers of all genres are welcome that can be reasonably accommodated on the starship’s top-deck.  This might include: dj’s, poets, story tellers, broadcasters and other performers seeking to add unrivalled charm and intrigue to their performance.

TheRickshawLive is wintering in Pensacola Florida! 

Building a mobile live-performance ecosystem is our #1 priority and will depend on collaborations with:

  • Players
  • Commercial Sponsors
  • Non-profits
  • Academic institutions
  • You!  The music afficionado!

The world of performance venues has been disrupted.  Let’s put wheels on it and #rollwithit!
