melodies

Q: How many people does it take to make a reality?
A: One. But two is always better.
- Philip K. Dick

Want to see collaboration in action and in music? Here’s a gobsmacking, awesome video with inspiring lessons from Sydney TedX featuring Daniel Johns and Josh Wakely:

Lessons
1. Narrative is melody and melody is storytelling.
2. The closest collaborations often occur when the collaborators have skills that are diametrically opposed.
3. The storyteller’s job is to question.
4. What works works.

More quotes
Do not limit yourself by what you can do but limit yourself by what you can imagine. If you are limited by your own personal skillset then seek out the right people to achieve your ideas.

The storyteller’s job is to question, not to define. The world needs more pertinent questions to be asked than simple answers.

Background
TEDxSydney 2011 took place on Saturday 28 May 2011 at CarriageWorks. Tens of thousands of people enjoyed the day: 800 in the theatre, over 1,000 via big screen simulcast in The Forum, up to 40,000 online via YouTube and up to 80,000 tuning in to ABC Radio National.
