It's rare that I get to get in on the ground floor of something, so if I get the chance, you know I'm going to jump on it. So when I saw an announcement for Musiter, I hopped on over to check it out.
You know how Twitter works, right? Okay, I'm a little hazy on the details myself. I have yet to "tweet" and don't have any plans to do so any time soon. But I do know that each "tweet" has to be less than 140 characters.
Well, an on-line friend of mine over at Red vs. Blue has started a musical version. Lauren (aka OboeCrazy) is the creative genius behind Musiter. Musicians can submit YouTube videos of themselves playing short snippets of music 140 notes or less. She posted the first video of herself playing a Bach piece. Normally I'd share the video here, but instead, click on the Musiter link above and check it out yourself.
And you musicians out there, make sure you join in what I'm sure is going to be an Internet phenomenon. I personally have nothing to contribute. Not unless I want to do some horrendous chanting. But I'll be checking back often to see what Musiter has to offer.
