Sunday Synth Jam: This video documents a global collaborative synth jam between John Wegner (Australia) and Kaiboard (Germany).
Here’s what Kaiboard has to say about it:
It all started when I saw a video of a drone flying over the destroyed city of Aleppo and discussed this with John. We both felt this loneliness and desperation of the people there. Two years ago we did the ‘Throw Me Away‘ project, which addressed a similar topic, so we had a common understanding.
Then the idea of a virtual jam session came up, with music that expresses the loneliness, the sadness but also with a glimpse of hope and humanity.
We started with creating some live played stuff on the keys (mainly using analog synthesizers and sequencers) and John added beautiful guitar, also playing live. So, it was like a live session, but not played at the same time.
Both of us were alone but we made some music together overcoming thousands of kilometers, different languages and cultures, expressing a common view on the world. And it felt good!
The video from Aleppo is available on multiple sources. We’re aware that often footage like this is published with a political intention. We follow none of these intentions, our intention is just to rise awareness of the insane things happening these times in many places of the earth.
