Bloopers #0 is the debut of a new performance-based collaboration by Michael Bell-Smith, Sara Magenheimer, and Ben Vida. As the band Bloopers, they use dance-pop music as a platform to explore the ways in which sound and music operate socially. Their work incorporates videos, props, set pieces, and promotional materials, playfully testing the boundaries of different areas of contemporary culture. Invoking Nam June Paik’s "Global Groove" and Robert Ashley’s "Perfect Lives" through the lens of Internet radio, Bloopers #0 is a multilayered dance party with distractions. 

Bloopers #0 was commissioned and is presented by Triple Canopy, and is hosted at Four81 Broadway by Jack Chiles and Mila Giesler.
