A blogger called Lot 49 posted a sequence of YouTube videos that capture the collaborative power of Web 2.0 and a touching musical moment. A fetching singer/songwriter named Mia posted a song that got a bit of attention. Next thing you know a drummer pulled in the audio, recorded a drum track, filmed it, mixed the two together, and suddenly Mia has a rhythm section. Because next a bass player did the same thing. Play them in sequence and you’ll get a chill. My only other observation is that the drummer guy seems to have outfitted himself with the full 1980s Phil Collins-sized arsenal. Here in Nashville you’re often rationed only a bass drum, snare and high-hat. I must say he handled the meter change between the verses and the chorus nicely.
You can also find the full sequence at the Digital Music Blog, which is where I found it.
