Playing for Change

I was so happy when I saw this video on Facebook last week.  I’ve written before about the art of Sampling music or sounds and re-organizing them into a new composition but this is different.  A street musician by the name of Roger Ridley was playing the song “Stand by me”.  Hearing his passion started the organization aptly known as “Playing for Change”.  Their goal is to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music.  They recorded Roger playing and then used that recording as a base track and had other musicians from around the world add to it.  The result is magical.  It’s not truly sampling, it’s a collaboration on a global scale.
