Art of Noise: Musical Destruction on the High Line

Trains stopped running on the High Line in 1980, but it turns out the party was far from over. We direct you to the amazing Art of Noise video for the 1984 single "Close (To the Edit)."

Marvel as a mulleted demon child and team of highwater-wearing accomplices deconstruct and set fire to a grand piano and other instruments. The elevated loading dock of the former Cudahy Meatpacking Plant makes an ideal dystopia for avant-garde showboating.
