I haven’t reported about the ‘Playing For Change‘ Foundation and movement since a while. But today this came up in my Youtube stream:
As you can see, it’s a jamming collaboration project very much like Wikiloops, with the difference that at PFC it’s mostly well-known song covers, like a Blues from the 1930s in this case – while at Wikiloops we only allow original material due to legal & copyright matters.
I have colleagues who like this, but have never heard (except from me) about Wikiloops. On the Wikiloops Youtube channel we have a playlist of 5 member collaborations from 2018 (one of them including me), and these caused a lot of video editing and cutting work for Richard.
But some members have their own channels, and do their own video creations, edits, and uploads – and maybe we should do more in that direction – so I’m considering filming myself more often when playing the bass, like some of us do. And if all contributors of a song would do that, then we’d have something like PFC as well – with the difference that we make up and play own stuff.
Food for thought, as prof. Joseph Beuys would have called it…
Thanks for reading, and viewing/listening.
Edit: here is one such video made by a small subgroup of Wikiloops members, not by the whole project. Still nice, and very professional editing here:
Again, thanks for viewing, and for listening.
