In the spirit of Ideas worth spreading, the TEDx Global Music Project will compile and share the best musical performances from the over 1,700 TEDx events around the world. This initiative is independently organized by a group of TEDx licensees.
We hope to eventually curate and share a TEDx catalog in iTunes, making great TEDx music, like the big ideas on TED.com, free for the world.
Check out the official launch on the TEDx Blog.

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani,Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, with simulcast TEDActive in Palm Springs; TEDGlobal is held each year in the United Kingdom. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide.
TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action.
TEDx offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world, and the TEDFellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
The TEDx Global Music Project is an independent TEDx initiative. All TEDx events are operated under license from TED
