Classical Continues to Find Innovative Ways to Use YouTube

Late last week a member of the Salon97 community sent me a link to:

This site is so cool that I wish I could embed the whole thing into this post. Basically, it’s a page constructed of several YouTube videos. Each is a video of someone playing a tune in B flat. They all go together, and you’re at liberty to create your own “In B Flat” masterpiece by playing different videos in tandem. Check it out!

The site doesn’t indicate this, but I have to wonder if “In B Flat” was inspired by Terry Riley‘s In C.

I’m really loving all the innovation we’re seeing in classical music these days. A YouTube Symphony, a YouTube Chorus, a cell phone symphony and so much more. What’s next? I can’t wait to find out.
