50 participants, 10 countries, 30 days – these are the components of a brand new single by Berlin-based band Four Phonica. November turned out to be super exciting when the electronic/rock band launched their musical crowdsourcing campaign #Songblitz. In a very short time Four Phonica aimed to create and release a new rendition of The Smith´s classic “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out” entirely made of musical, vocal and video contributions from fans.
“Our initial idea was to write a song in collaboration with someone else, another band or artist”, say Daria Chepel and Mark Gritz, the band´s lead singers. “But then we thought: Why not making a new song with everybody, with anyone who wants to be in, who wants to be a part of something special?” And then, the fun began.
Four Phonica´s fan base turned out to be highly creative, composing a large amount of musical parts, recording their singing and clips for an official music video. In a very intense and interactive way, all contributions were uploaded online while actively discussed during regular Live Broadcasts and via the band’s social networks.
The single release has been supported with a tour throughout cities in eastern Germany and will end with a last show in Leipzig on January 2, 2015.
