PLAY is a two-part video celebrating the rewards and challenges of dedicating one’s life to playing music.
Directed by Grohl himself, Part one opens with narrated behind the scenes discussion of the love of playing music and the lifelong relationship with an instrument—as well as the process and challenges of recording and filming this unique performance: The “PLAY” film then segues to the titular 23-minute, one-man-band instrumental recording on which Grohl plays all seven instruments on the track, all live. The entire song was played by Grohl, each time on a different instrument, live all the way through for 23 minutes.
You can also have your go at an interactive PLAY experience by choosing which audio and video you’d like to experience.
Here’s how it works: Hover over “Choose Video” and click to select to view only one instrument. Once you do that, you can also hover over “Choose Audio” to listen to the isolated track of the instrument you are watching or the complete master audio. You can go back to the complete master performance video, or toggle between individual instruments and audio at any time. Download sheet music and find a growing directory of organizations who support music education.
Now THIS is how you celebrate music – thanks Dave!
