As it says in my introduction, I used to sing in the MIT Logarhythms (an all-male a cappella group), and still keep up with the group as a “logalum”. Recently, they released their first music video, promoting the first single off their new upcoming album (to be released in October).
A pretty cool video, I think, especially considering they filmed/directed/edited/produced the entire thing themselves, and did it all in 2 weeks from concept to finished product. I might also add that all the indoor shots were done inside the recording studio at MIT which I helped build (from scratch!) back when I was in the group. Yes, I’m a proud Log papa. :)
It definitely goes to show that MIT students are all about making things happen. It’s much more about participation than spectatorship; people like to do, rather than watch. At MIT, you won’t see a lot of people who just sit on their hands and let life happen to them – they’re going to want to go out and start something new, create something from scratch, make it go faster, better, stronger…
Here, you can see entrepreneurship, creativity, art, and technology all coming together in harmony – MIT students at their finest.
The song is “There Goes My Baby” originally by Usher; solo by Edan Krowlewicz ’12; arrangement by Ben Lee ’11. Video filmed, directed, and edited by Luke Plummer ’14, Zach Tomlinson ’13, and Eddie Kim ’13, with several other Logs contributing. I should also mention the audio is all a cappella sung by the Logs, and was recorded and edited by Steve Salinas ’12, Mike Miller ’09, and Ben Bloomberg ’11, and mixed by Mike Miller ’09 and James Gammon. (Warning: this song will get stuck in your head…but it’s a good one!)
Edit: some minor changes and updated credits.
