Let's Play For Change

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

http://playingforchange.com - From the award-winning documentary, "Playing For Change: Peace Through Music", comes the first of many "songs around the world" being released independently. Featured is a cover of the Ben E. King classic by musicians around the world adding their part to the song as it traveled the globe.

Play For Change - What a wonderful concept.  This video and the campaign that goes along with is has been absolutely inspiring.  Think about it... not just the technical merits but the message of it.  Music is a universal language that we can all speak, that we can all connect to.  Our world doesn't need more war, we need more things in common, more hands to hold, more ways to get to know one another.  Play For Change is the beginning of that mission.

Technically, I enjoyed the video too.  It's really cool that the single song can be brought together all over the world and then put together and work beautifully.  It's like the music group, The Postal Service - each musician recorded their track on a tape and then mailed it to the next to record theirs.  So too did each of these musicians play their part and then got sliced and diced together.
