In Bb 2.0

Music-Experiments on YouTube seem to get more and more popular. Today mo. from Phlow gave me the link to this little experiment. In Bb 2.0 is a loose collection of various “tracks” in for of YouTube videos, that can be played in any order. The results surely are not synchronized and therefore the sounds have to be more orientated on ambient-music. The project is also connected to an open call. Here are some of the rules:

- Sing or play an instrument, in Bb major. Simple, floating textures work best, with no tempo or groove. Leave lots of silence between phrases.
– Record in a quiet environment, with as little background noise as possible.
– Wait about 5-10 seconds to start playing.

Uh, an don’t forget to use nice video-footage as well!

I somehow like the idea of extending this popular video-platform to new music-instruments, or more generally new music concepts. I am sure, that most of you are already familiar with the brilliant YouTube MashUp “Thru You” from Kutiman.
