This means nothing to some people. Others will recognise it as a guitar riff. How do I know this?

Well imagine for a moment that you are in a band call, say, Poney Poney. Now imagine you’ve written a song called, say, “Cross the Fader”, and you want to promote it. But there is no cash in the pockets to make a video.

No camera. No cash. No problem.

Make the video using PowerPoint (or Keynote, or OpenOffice Presentation).

“Cross the Fader” by Poney Poney

(some RSS readers may require you to click through to see the video)

Nice workaround.
And I like the song.

The lyrics make no sense, I just hope that it’s due to bad translations from the original French.

take care,
Will Knott

    That is the coolest thing I’ve seen today. They should have notated the A# as a Bb though. Thanks for sharing.

    No problem. Some powerpoint presentations are better than others. Any powerpoint its own soundtrack has an advantage, and this one enhances the music (and makes you listen to the lyrics)

    I recognise it as a chord progression :)
