Ben Folds, Damian Kulash, Amanda Palmer & Neil Gaiman Write & Record Album at Berklee, Proceeds to benefit Berklee City Music
“One Tiny Thing” MP3 from 8in8 premiered on SPIN
Ben Folds, Damian Kulash (OK Go), Amanda Palmer (Dresden Dolls, solo), and author Neil Gaiman set out to write and record eight songs in eight hours (4 p.m. to midnight) at Berklee College of Music, Monday, April 25, and release them 10 hours later during Rethink Music, in Boston. Like Radiohead did recently, this group plans to show how record companies are becoming superfluous to building buzz and distributing music.
Check out the “One Tiny Thing” MP3 off the resulting 8in8 album where it premiered on SPIN yesterday or HERE. The 8in8 album titled Nighty Night is now available through Bandcamp.com. Proceeds from the first week of downloads will benefit Berklee City Music, which provides free music education to underserved teens.
The historic collaboration was broadcast live from the recording studio at www.rethink-music.com and the group gave a presentation there on the recording project at 10:40am followed by a private concert for conference registrants at 8:00pm at the Berklee Performance Center (BPC).
