Wow – dedication! This is a cool stop-action music video that took almost 2 years to make!
Want to see what pure dedication looks like? This music video for the song “In Your Arms” by Kina Grannis is a stop-motion animation done with a background composed of jelly beans. It’s a crazy project that required 22 months, 1,357 hours, 30 people, and 288,000 jelly beans. They could have used CGI, of course, but each frame was carefully created by hand and photographed with a still camera. It’s even more mind-blowing given this fact: none of it was done with a green screen.
Here’s an interesting behind-the-scenes look into how it was made:
Wow – the entire Bach works - available free as a download! Very nice!
We mentioned this one long ago, and it’s time to mention it again: You can download for free the complete organ works of Johann Sebastian Bach. They were recorded by Dr. James Kibbie (University of Michigan) on original baroque organs in Leipzig, Germany. Feel free to start with a collection of Favorite Masterworks, or get the complete works that have been divided into 13 groups for easy download. Once you download these zip files, you will need to unzip them before playing the tracks. Enjoy!
Wow – well done cover! This sounds great!
We are siblings doing what we love! enjoy!

Wow – this girl is good! Her voice + a plastic cup = awesome!
This video was nominated for an O Music Award! I would appreciate it so much if you could vote for me Thank you so much & I hope you all had an incredible day today.
Just to clarify! This is a COVER. I saw Lulu and the Lampshades version of the original song by the Mainers Mountaineers and I thought I would give it a shot. For anyone confused, I’m hoping this clears it up. I did not make up the cup routine nor the song I simply made it my own which is why it says (cover).
So let me know what you think!
Ummm – ok then! He did this all with a $4.99 iPhone app?? Incredible!
(Just sayin though that I am kinda glad he doesn’t live in my house!). Fun to watch and listen (this was done live and in one take with no edits!):
Jamie Lidell is a seriously talented and internationally known musician and producer, but the music he’s able to make using only this iPhone app is crazy. This cannot possibly be real. The subway just got way more fun.
The new iMaschine app for iPhone and iPod Touch just dropped in the app store, and if this newly-released promo video is any indication it’s one of the most functional production apps out there. The app is actually based on the Maschine sequencer hardware/software combination by Native Instruments. That might explain why Jamie Lidell looks like he’s actually pounding away at the pads on a sequencer instead of playing with an app.
The iMaschine app is actually a combination sampler, sequencer, and audio processor. It carries all of the tools you need to improvise and record a bumping beat. Choose from the included package of drum kits, synths, bass, and other sounds, and then lay down a track on the pads. As Lidell shows off, the iPhone microphone can be used to grab samples or to record in real-time. Then you can use the built-in tools to edit the track and tweak the sound.
The music in the video is all recorded in real-time. Lidell makes the sampling, playing, recording, editing workflow look seamless and intuitive. Native Instruments didn’t exactly hire an amateur to show off its app, and Lidell definitely had plenty of hands-on time before he shot the video. But at least we know what’s possible. With a little creativity and practice—that could be you too. iMaschine costs $4.99 and is available now in the app store. [Native Instruments and Warp Records]
