Well isn't this cool. Spotted it on the BBC this morning and thought, what a great initiative! Maybe something folks here could have a go at. From the website...
Join Melody Gardot in this new project, From Paris with Love. A collaborative initiative, created by musicians and people all around the world.
The Grammy award-winning composer and arranger, Vince Mendoza, has prepared charts for you to follow. The score calls for strings, woodwinds and harp.
Whether you’re a professional orchestral musician or a talented hobbyist, you can participate in this new endeavor to become a part of the first “worldwide digital orchestra”.
Follow the instructions to submit your performance. Upon receipt of all submissions, selected recordings will be assembled to create the “global digital orchestra” and audio file that will accompany the first single, “From Paris with Love”, to be released as part of Melody Gardot’s forthcoming album. All musicians selected will receive a payment equivalent to a standard UK union wage, just as they would if they were working with us live in the studio.
