Playing for Change

by

I heard about this Playing for Change foundation today on NPR. It’s a pretty interesting concept. The founder of the organization, Mark Johnson, recorded street music he heard while walking around the city (with the musician’s permission, of course). He put it on an iPod, brought that iPod to different places around the country, and while other musicians were listening to the original sound, they started to play music too, and Johnson recorded their reactions. He expanded the project from places around the country to places around the world. Now, he’s integrated the sounds of people from all over the world. People are making music together without even meeting eachother.
