On Monday April 25th, instant karma gonna get Ben Folds, Amanda Palmer and her husband writer Neil Gaiman, and OK Go's Damain Gulash, when they get together at the Berklee College Of Music to writre, record eight songs and release em two hours later via releasemusic.com (who will also stream the sessions).
The concept is to show the major labels are useless.
1. As long as the mjority of sales are CDs, the major labels are hugely important for distribution.
2. I am fine with recording and releasing, but writing 8 songs in 8 hours proves absolutely nothing. Folds has written a decent song in a decade, writing crappy songs in short order doesn't mean a damn thing.
More info off the press release: "Tuesday, April 26, Folds, Kulash, Palmer, and Gaiman will give a presentation on the recording project at 10:40 a.m. at Rethink Music, and perform a private concert for conference registrants at 8:00 p.m. at the Berklee Performance Center (BPC). The concert also features Basia Bulat and Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears. Monday, April 25, Metric will perform a private acoustic show at the Memorial Church at Harvard; and Wayne Shorter will perform with Berklee students and faculty at the BPC. All events are free for conference registrants. Rethink Music: Creativity, Commerce and Policy in the 21st Century is presented by Berklee and MIDEM, in association with Harvard University's Berkman Center and Business School, in Boston, April 25-27, 2011. The complete Rethink Music program is here www.rethink-music.com."
