The Power of Music

This video brought tears to my eyes. It shows how technology can be so transformative these days - a laptop, a microphone, a great song, and thousands of frequent flyer miles will get you this amazing video. Basically the video makers flew around the world with a base track from a street performer in Santa Monica and had musicians all over the world perform on top of it while listening to it on headphones, and the compilation is basically fucking awesome. Read more about it and some of the artists on gizmodo.

Yes, it is!! I've listened to it a few times today already :).

How are you? You haven't posted lately :).

Mrs. CH said...

There's just not much going on with me right now. Thesis writing is actually pretty boring! LOL

I can't remember - have you started your internship yet?

Epic! I love it.

MCH, no, I have not - but soon!

And I hear you - my life is boring lately as well :). Writing/working...working/writing. Whoop-di-do!
