Listen creates The Skype Music Room for Sasquatch 2014

At this weekend’s Sasquatch! music festival, we’re constructing an interactive space that combines original music, mind-bending projections, and uses people as the content. The Skype Music Room allows festival goers to create music in real time using Skype Video Messages as beats through our Digital Sound Interface, easy enough for anyone to use. Check out the video above for our demonstration with Sydney-based indie rock band, Cloud Control. The Skype Music Room lets you be part of the Sasquatch experience in a unique way—whether you’re at the festival, or checking it out from home. All you need to do to become part of it is send a video message (hopefully a fun, friendly one) to Skype_Sasquatch or click here.

Your video can then be turned into music and projected onto the walls of the Skype Music Room for everyone to enjoy.

See you there!

LISTEN x TED x Skype – Virtual Choir

Listen works to build brand affinity/ advocacy with TED’s Professional Innovator and Social Connectors audience by driving Skype’s Video innovation and message “It’s amazing what you can achieve when you come together in the moment.”
Grammy award winning composer Eric’s Whitacre’s vision, to conduct a live choir from all corners of the globe at TED’s closing ceremony, is brought to life.

Working with TED, Skype and Eric, Lisetn created a version of Eric’s “Cloudburst” composition and delivered his vision through the world’s first live global choir of 100 choristers and a virtual choir of 30 people, live on Skype from 30 countries
