Changing Lives with Music – Lad in a Battle at Google I/O

Every day we are inspired by our users. But sometimes a story comes along that is so special we want to make sure that whole world hears it.

James, aka Lad in a Battle, is using BandLab for his ‘Bridging Rooms Project’ with schools and pediatric patients, bringing joy to kids fighting cancer. He shared his process with Google, in a Developer Spotlight video.

This video dropped today on day one of the 2019 Google I/O conference, where 7,000 of the world’s top programmers gather in Mountain View, California. Watch it to see how James works with Geo to use music and art to create hope and joy with this brave kid.

We are driven by our mission to empower creators – and it’s incredible to have this window into the inspiring ways people are using our tools to help others. We love that our technology is helping creators like James make a positive impact on the world through music.

Our entire team is inspired by James, Geo and all the students involved in this project – we hope this inspires you too!

PS: We also love how the Concepts app is enabling faster, more natural design for creative people everywhere. It’s free and easy to get started on – so you could even branch out by animating your next music video 😉
