Moogaloop

A musical jam from New Orleans to Congo to Moscow.

A melodic tribute to the power of the internet.

I'm not sure how they cope with the time delay as signals are bounced to HEO and back, but they seem to do it well.

There are jam sites, or so I'm told. My Inner Rock Star is complaining that I learned touch typing instead of guitar.

I blogged that vimeo too, as well as a recording of an Indian folk song. I don't think it's live. I think they're listening to the recorded tracks and then adding a track, all of which is edited together to make the whole.

Written by Ben E. King, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, all of whom are still alive as far as I know.

It was a Ben E. King song as far as I know, and Leiber and Stoller, who were fabulous songwriters, were producers, so maybe they added something that got them in the songwriting credits as well, but it didn't seem right to let this song go without writing credits on a writer's page.
