And we’re back.
Sorry for the lack of posts in this blog for the past week but this doggy has been out on vacation, taking some precious time off of the screen. Usually when we aren’t adding stuff on here, stats go down. But not this time. Since Michael died our numbers have been going crazy thanks to this post: http://gigdoggy.wordpress.com/2009/05/01/the-key-to-music-part-4-the-keys-to-the-80s-pop-era/. It only contains one pic of Michael’s thriller video and a couple of search terms related to the album – that was enough to augment our views by 1000% :)
Anyways, to apologize for the standby, I give you this totally frigin’ amazing crowdsourced video of the song “Hibi no Neiro (Tone of Everyday)” by the Japanese band Sour. This music video was shot for their first mini album ‘Water Flavor EP’. The cast were selected from the actual Sour fan base, from many countries around the world. Each person and scene was filmed purely via webcam.
Aside from the beautiful creative result of this work, this experiment once again corroborates the fact that technology is the prime medium through which fans can connect with their bands.
