Dig it.

Play your part in music history.

We called for professionals and amateur musicians of all ages, locations and instruments to audition for the YouTube Symphony Orchestra by submitting a video performance of a new piece written for the occasion by the renowned Chinese composer Tan Dun.

Finalists are selected by a judging panel comprised of the world's most renowned orchestras. Vote for your favorite instrumentalists on YouTube from February 14-22.

Winners are announced on March 2nd and will be invited to travel to New York in April 2009, to participate in the YouTube Symphony Orchestra summit, and play at Carnegie Hall under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas.

All the Tan Dun submissions will be compiled into a mashup video which will be premiered on this channel on April 15th.

Here is the mash up video.

Wow, I think that is a really cool video. I love the concept. I noticed some whiney guy commenting on the sound compression. I think he missed the artistic value and possibly the entire point.

I found it very satisfying.

Nah, what makes you thinki I could hang with those cats? Plus usually electric bass isn't in a symphony. That's more of a job for the contrabass/double bass

Get a standing bass and they said amateurs as well.

Right on. And I'd love to get a stand up bass. Learn some Stray Cats and go to fucking town with that shit! :D
