Darren Solomon is a music producer / composer who’s played with the likes of Ray Charles and Barry Manilow. But don’t run away just yet; he’s also made a beautiful online collaborative composation based on YouTube videos, called In B Flat.
Inspired by the fact that you can play multiple YouTube videos at the same time, he put up an open call on his website, asking people to send in a video where they sing or play an instrument in the key of Bb Major.
He compiled the best 20 and amazingly they all work very well together. The result is an intriguing interactive sort-of-composition that allows you to create your own very atmospheric piece of music. In B Flat.
