In B-flat, "A collaborative musical/spoken word project" by Darren Solomon

In b-flat screen

In B-flat is a "collaborative musical/spoken word project" by Darren Solomon.  It's brilliant.  Various folks recorded riffs in the key of B-flat, and Darren assembled them into a multi-voiced web instrument that you can mix and play however you like.  I started with the xylophone (upper left) plus the voice (guy with California t-shirt). 

Note:each panel has an independent volume control.

Note also: if you like In B-flat and you're in the Durham area, make sure to visit Christian Marclay's Video Quartet (click for brief video)  at the Nasher Museum of Art.  Up through July 26.
