Killer concept and execution on this Cold War Kids video. You can activate/deactivate any instrument at any point in the song and change any musician to any one of four tracks.
I have no objection to loading this thing up after the opener exercises and simply playing with it. If the moment offered itself, though, I wouldn’t mind asking:
- If we set all the tracks before the video starts, how many different videos could we watch?
Further: the song is 3:10 long. If we started watching all of those videos right now, on what day and at what time would our marathon end?
- How many times did each musician have to record the song?
The difference between those two numbers is staggering, worth classroom discussion, a sign of the times, etc.
