If you like music, I’m sure these videos will be a big hit. I love the play on words, playing for change.

Playing For Change | Song Around The World “Stand By Me” from Concord Music Group on Vimeo.

Through the use of fairly simple technology, the producers were able to record and mix elements of songs, vocals and instrument tracks, that were performed by people around the globe.

The cover of “Stand By Me” was recorded by completely unknown artists in a virtual studio all around the world. It all started with a base track—vocals and guitar—recorded on the streets of Santa Monica, California, by a street musician called Roger Ridley. The base track was then taken to New Orleans, Louisiana, where Grandpa Elliott—a blind singer from the French Quarter—added vocals and harmonica while listening to Ridley’s base track on headphones. In the same city, Washboard Chaz’s added some metal percussion to it.

I thought it was just so cool. You can buy the CD/DVD on Amazon. it is also available at you local Starbucks.

I love technology, especially when it can enable something like this.
