A little while ago I heard an interesting story on NPR about collaborative music software.  They described a series of websites that empower geographically separated musicians to create music collaboratively.  Using sites like ejamming, Musicians can find additional band members, share tracks and mix your own tracks with those of your partners across the net.  They even hint at being able to practice with each other live, although I’ve never tried it.

All this reminds me of the story behind the fabulous first album by The Postal Service, Give Up.  For those who don’t know the story, this fabulous album was created by two musicians living in different cities who sent tapes back and forth by mail to create the music. 

Now sites like JamGlue and SpliceMusic make this kind of collaboration possible for anybody musically inclined.  It’ll be fun to hear the first big successes from this new kind of band.  You might even call them a transhuman bands since they’ll using modern technology to overcome human geographic limitations to creating music.
