Christmas tunes using Instagram Hashtags
Posted : December 6th, 2012 by TribeHouse
One of the most creative people we have the pleasure of working with in TribeHouse is our very own Nico Boesten. This is a great example of his creativity both musically and with video creation. If you like it as much as we do then be sure to download it and also share it with your buddies. Merry Christmas everyone.
After very little planning, no practice, and a lot of inspiration to record a couple of Christmas tunes, me and a few friends got together for a “Live off the floor” recording to release a digital download of “Christmas Balls”.
I made this Youtube video to go along with the song “We Three Kings” because I thought it would be interesting to create an entire music video from Instagram hashtags. For those who are looking at your computer screen all confused because of the word “hashtag” and you’re trying to figure out if it’s some sort of drug paraphernalia, it’s simply a way for Instagram users to publicly share their photos using “tags” or keywords. So, what I did was take the lyrics of “We Three Kings” and about every third word or so, I searched Instagram for that tag, took a screenshot from my phone, then put it all together to this new version of the song we recorded for your audible and visual enjoyment (especially those of you with ADHD). There are 2 songs to be released on this 2 song digital-only album and everything is being offered at a “pay whatever you want” basis.
Hopefully you’ll want and it would be stellar if you can afford to pay.
