Watch New York’s iconic buildings blast off into space to the tune of Change, a song on the chamber orchestra Now Ensemble’s April 2011 album, Awake. Composer Judd Greenstein wrote the Indie-Classical music in tandem with animator Joshua Frankel for the film Plan of the City. In the 13 minute 36 second extended music video, Now Ensemble musicians rocket into the atmosphere alongside the buildings, their course set for Mars. When they arrive on the Red Planet, the group takes a subway car to a city composed of buildings that left Earth from Shanghai. • vimeo.com/23282730
