What Happens When 350 Musicians Meet And Play Together For The Very First Time?

This summer, around 350 musicians of all kinds — “Young, older, professional drumlines, community marching bands, seasoned jazz players, Indian wedding band musicians, Brazilian samba drummers and scads of amateur players” — showed up on the steps of the Brooklyn Public Library at Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn for a dynamic and unpredictable NPR Music Field Recording.

In a premiere and one-time-only event, this huge group of people performed “100+ BPM,” an original composition by Dhol drmmer and composer Sunny Jain, commissioned by NPR Music for Make Music New York festival.

Alex Bellini plans to mourn the loss of Arctic ice on a far more intimate level than many of us could imagine. He’ll live an entire year on an iceberg off Greenland “witnessing its last phase of life.

In the video above, Bellini spells out what the thaw around Greenland could mean for the rest of the world — and it’s scary.

I feel the urge to act, to do something, he explains. He says he hopes his expedition will bring about a change in attitude toward global warming. This will become an era of responsibility.

Bellini plans to board an iceberg in spring 2015 and live in a pod similar to a lunar module, breaking his solitude to occasionally meet with bloggers and writers so he can spread the word, according to the vid. He’ll bring 300 kilograms of dried food plus electronics equipment, Motherboard reported in an earlier article.

When the iceberg can no longer support him, he said he will take to sea in his module and wait to be rescued.

This is important. This IS a publicity scheme. Because a scheme is a large-scale systematic plan or arrangement for attaining some particular object or putting a particular idea into effect. And this is an idea the whole of humanity need to embrace, take to the polls, to the streets, and in their every day conversations.

Listen to Carl…

Don’t sit this one out. Do something. You are by accident of fate alive at an absolutely critical moment in the history of our planet.
