This is the first part to Subway Melodies - an experimental documentary about the musicians of the New York City subway system and its relationship between mechanical and human sounds. It explores the subway system as a stage and as a complex instrument that never stops playing, and it presents the Metrocard as more than just a ride on the subway but a ticket to a unique musical experience that can be witnessed nowhere else in the world. Not a word is spoken in Subway Melodies. The entire film takes place under ground, never leaving the subway world, and draws a new perspective on subway life as we know it.
