A DECADE OF STORYTELLING POWERED BY THE BEST WRITERS ON THE PLANET

CLICK BELOW TO REDISCOVER HUMANITY

The World’s Biggest Rock Band!

Technology enables us to do amazing things.  One such amazing thing was an album I was asked to collaborate on, featuring musicians from several continents and members of Tuff Darts, Mod Fun, TV Toy, Joe Jackson, Captain Storm, Bram Tchaikovsky, Bon Jovi, Greg Abate, The Royals, The Punsters, Ghost Walks, Puzzle Monkey, The Larks, and Bill Nelson’s Red Noise.

The album “Steve’s Theme Park” was masterminded by Steve Peer in Maine and compiled by Jeff Crossman who had the patience of a saint in bringing together so many diverse contributions.

Read the story of this Herculean enterprise with many transferable lessons for people trying to do complex things across continents, such as:

  1. Global collaboration relies on strong leadership and direction.  Steve provided this from the outset.
  2. Global collaboration relies on excellent systems of co-ordination.  Jeff provided this essential mechanism without which we would not have succeeded.
  3. Global collaboration relies on give-and-take behaviours on the part of the team involved.  Guided by Steve’s leadership, the various experts were able to give their best and freely interpret Peer’s musical and lyrical ideas and make them their own.

Some of the songs from Steve’s Theme Park are included here:
