The 8 Hour Album

http://www.berklee.edu/news/3311/rethink-music-ben-folds-damian-kulash-amanda-pal

Ben Folds among many others (Ok Go and Dresden Dolls appearances!?) are sticking it to the man by writing 8 songs in 8 hours, then releasing it soon after. This will be a true test to them as musicians and creative artists, and to the audio engineers running the session. To record a song an hour can be a challenge, but it the session runs smoothly, this can turn out to be something else.

The best thing? YOU CAN WATCH IT ALL LIVE. It all goes down 4/25 from 4p-midnight EST, and will be broadcast live at http://www.rethink-music.com/. You're gonna want to bookmark this, because this is going to be something else. What do you think about this?

  1. I'm actually disappointed I'm gonna miss it. I live in Europe so these hours are kinda impossible. I hardly have time in the evening anyway.

  2. You've gotta be pretty creative to be able to do that.

  3. Woah... that's sweet. I have a great song someone made in a day, but eight in eight hours? Crazy.

    Thanks for pointing this out. I'll definitely be following.

  5. should be interesting. Months in a studio compared to 8 straight hours....will show their true musical talent if they can come up with good tunes in that short amount of time

  6. I'm not even sure how they're gonna manage that. That sounds so ridiculous. Might have to check this out and see how they do.
