Watch this fun performance of twelve pianists playing at the same time – it could have been called “Piano for 24 hands.”
There is a metaphor here. This performance is a bit like the publishing experience. If you look closely you can see editorial, sales, marketing, and some booksellers all working from the same page of music. Music written by an author who is not on the stage!
OOOh, love that analogy, Steve… well “played” 😉

Love, love this, Steve!

Watching Fun Friday videos has become a ritual for my two daughters and myself. Since we all play piano this one amazed and entertained. What fun!
As one who plays the piano, I was delighted by this video. Thank you for posting it. It is, indeed, a metaphor for the publishing industry.

My goodness! How long did they rehearse to pull this off so seamlessly? Both masterful and playful! Yes, this a perfect metaphor as well for all the persons necessary to bring forth a piece of writing from an author’s mind to the page in a reader’s hand.
