Join our Crowd Created Music Video of "Malach" from "Warlords of Draenor"


Help Us Make Music History 
with Google and YouTube!

Musicians, here's your chance to perform with us at the iDIG Music Fest in Dublin, April 4th, 2015, from anywhere in the world!
The iDIG Music Fest YouTube Orchestra is in full swing! We already have 70+ musicians and ensembles from 3 continents working with us to "Crowd Create" a music video of Eimear Noone's "Malach," from "World of Warcraft; Warlords of Draenor."

Click to Preview "Malach"
If you are a musician and you want to contribute your performance to our video, email me at craig@idigmusicfest.com, let me know the instrument you play, and I will send you your part as well as a guide track, and instructions on how to video record yourself performing the part.
Likewise, if you know anyone (especially in Australia, Africa or either Arctic - then we'd have all continents) who might join in, send them our way!
After we have collected all the videos, we will edit them together into one massive montage.
We will debut the montage at the Video Games Live show on April 4th, at the Dublin International Game Music Festival, synchronized with our live orchestra conducted by Eimear Noone!

Check out this awesome example from master percussionist Mark Scholl!

Mark is formerly of the Winnipeg Symphony and music director for Barry Manilow, to name just a few of his 100's of performance and recording credits.  

What you see here is Mark playing in sync to the guide track we supplied. His video is from an iPad, but as he is set to record percussion remotely, his audio is from the microphone (not a requirement to participate).

We've edited out the video where Mark is simply counting bars rest, but know, if you are contributing a video, we need these bars rest to make sure you are in sync. 



Here's where we make history!

For the past few weeks, we have been brainstorming with Google and YouTube to add one more layer to our video:  

Live performances, in real time, by ensembles at each of the YouTube campuses around the world!  

We don't even know if it's possible, but when you are teamed with the guys who created a self driving car and the best map program ever, anything can happen.

So, if you are a musician who wants to perform in our world-wide ensemble, send an email to craig@isigmusicfest.com, let us know what instrument you play, and we will send the guide track and a part.

We will also need contacts at universities and ensembles in the YouTube cities - as soon as we confirm our methodology for the live ensembles.

But hurry!  Our deadline for submissions is March 4th, 2015, so we can make our April 4th show!

And if you are in Dublin and want to catch the fun:  Tickets are available at:
