NY Subway Musicians Play Together via the Internet…

We’re getting closer (it depends on location these days) as musicians at being able to co-collaborate via the Internet and jam live together. The idea kinda emerged many years ago when lead guitarist, Jeff Skunk” Baxter with Steely Dan, created one of the first ways to gig with other musicians in different locations, all at once.

In this article…
An online video by director Chris Shimojima and producer Anita Anthonj set each performer up with a computer that connected them to the composer Ljova, who directed them from Bryant Park. Though there were many connection issues, the musicians were able to work through it and perform an original piece together from the different locations.

Jam On!

His departure from mainstream songs to introspective nuance has been instrumental (no pun intended) in providing for insightful creative considerations […]
  • Open mic gigs and being to loud… December 6, 2017
    Just finished talking with a tavern owner and supporter of live and live open mics… as a matter of fact if it wasn’t for this venue owner, musicians of this particular local town would need to drive another hour to reach another open mic scene. Bottom line and a wake up call for us musicians […]
  • Notes on a Piano (keyboard)… November 6, 2017
    Now, we all know that the basic 1, 4, 5 note structures (with maybe an additional transition note/chord) can create a complete song… However, when you toss in randomness of notes it might take a little more time to complete the composition. This video shows a keyboard prodigy that just might blow your mind! You’ll […]
