Scratchin’

What is going on with music? And I am not really talking about the music itself, but the products you need to hear the music. Nowadays we lost the real connection with music, we just download it and most of us don’t even buy cd’s anymore. Well, I can understand, you can just download for free, so why buy a cd? Artists have to come up with new creative ideas to sell their music in a physical way.

Beck Song Reader

Beck  came up with the idea to let his fans/listeners play the music by themself and submit them to the Songreader website. His “album” is called Songreader, it are 20 new songs presented as sheet music. Another Band who became very creative to promote their new song  ‘Blue Ice’ was Shout out louds, they selected ten individuals to send a very special package. The package included a negative imprint of the master cut and some water, the only thing you had to do is pouring water into the negative imprint and leave it in the freezer for no more than six hours. Watch the video below to hear (and see) the result. Are you not that fan of ice? Than just try a chocolate LP from Breakbot.

Besides artist that are coming up with new ways to promote their album. There are also smart people working on printable records. Find the right music and just print your vinyl with your 3d printer.
