Austin Dacey is many things, a philosopher, musician, human rights activist, and writer. Nowhere does his online bio. describe him as a technologist, but he is successfully leveraging powerful technologies to connect suppressed musicians from around the globe with U.S. musicians willing to perform their music. What’s even better, Austin uses Skype to allow the suppressed musicians to listen to performances in real-time.
The Wall Street Journal highlighted Austin and Impossible Music and described a concert where the global song writers ‘jammed’ live via Skype along with the band performing their music. After the performances, musicians converse with the U.S. performers and the audience.
Austin is working with a jailed Cameroonian musician who can still be reached via cell phone. Austin would like to have him sing along with the live performance by mobile phone. The real importance of this article isn’t the technology Austin uses, its that he is using technology as a tool to connect humanity, and that makes all the difference!
