Playing for change... or, about the Brotherhood of Man.

With today's technology, all it takes is some good fantasy and a few (Mac) tools, to create unique marvels like this one. Click on the 'play' and 'full screen' symbols and you'll be carried into the marvelous globe of ours to enjoy a clip never seen ever before. When it started playing, I kinda thought, WTF is this, but then, in a sudden moment I was 'moved' and almost got tears in my eyes... Yes I can!

It's a composite audio/video of a song whereby additional tracks were laid in by different singers and musicians from different places around the world. The finished product is simply ünglaublich!

The song itself is the classic standard "Stand By Me" originally released in 1955 by The Staple Singers and released again in 1961 by the Drifters . This composite version is a real breakaway! So turn up the speaker volume, lean back on an armchair, and enjoy the marvels of human talent, especially of those sound engineers and video montage people.
