Organized by the Lucerne Festival, a creative fundraiser for Swiss freelance musicians was created last month, where they encouraged musicians to 'donate' by submitting notes - that is, a video of the famous melody in Beethoven's 9th. It is inspiring to see all sorts of different musicians join together across the world through this tune of brotherhood and sisterhood.
I went a bit over the top with the notes I submitted, where I looped my melody twelve times so that the "Ode to Joy" became a wall of all of its notes played simultaneously.
Please check out the campaign at www.solidarityformusic.ch! (Can you find my video? It's the 150th one...)
