We are the world.

by Jason Stone


Short Films: “Lockdown Experiment” - 3 mins 26s

Max De Lucia of music company DLMDD boldly decided to see if it was possible for musicians in lockdown to compose a single piece of music by contributing fifteen seconds apiece. His experiment paid off and the result can be heard (and indeed seen) here for you to judge for yourself.

The Dadaist nature of this idea could easily have led to a somewhat jarring outcome but that didn't happen at all… Instead, a beautifully coherent piece of music was generated and, better still, became the bedrock for an expression of solidarity between musicians across the planet.

It reminds us, as we contemplate the immediate danger of the virus which has wreaked so much havoc, that the world has been provided with an opportunity to consider our commonality... and music is probably the single best vehicle for bringing this home. Bravo, as they say.
