Ben Folds, Damian Kulash, Amanda Palmer, Neil Gaiman to Write, Record Eight Songs in Eight Hours

Ben Folds, Damian Kulash (OK Go), Amanda Palmer (Dresden Dolls, solo), and author Neil Gaiman will write and record eight songs in eight hours (4:00 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 will show how record companies are becoming superfluous to building buzz and distributing music.

The historic collaboration will be broadcast live from the recording studio at rethink-music.com. The album will be released through Bandcamp.com; proceeds from the first week of downloads will benefit Berklee City Music, which provides free music education to underserved teens.

Glad I will be there.
