Maroon 5 get fans to write track
Maroon 5 are set to let fans help compose their next track.
The 'This Love' group will write a song in just 24 hours as they take part in a special session whereby fans can link to the band in the studio via the internet and suggest ideas for the song's lyrics, rhythm, riffs and hooks.
The recording session, to be held in London, will be steamed live on the internet and the band will work with fans in real time to create the one-off track.
Fans will appear to the group through a movement based projection system, which will stream their thoughts and comments to the whole studio space rather than the group - Adam Levine, James Valentine, Jesse Carmichael, Michael Madden and Matt Flynn - having to gather around a computer screen.
The session takes place in association with Coca Cola, and Joe Belliotti, Director of Global Entertainment Marketing for the company, said: "We are excited to be working with Maroon 5. "They have worked closely with us to help shape the event and ensure the session will be a fun and engaging experience for fans no matter where in the world they are.
"This is the most ambitious and experimental effort in music Coca-Cola has ever undertaken."
The session will be streamed live at www.coca-cola.com/music on March 22.Posted on 4 Mar 2011 08:30 to category : Music News
