Art for Art’s Sake

Earlier this week in Boston there was a conference called Rethink Music. One of the events that happened as part of this conference was the formation of the temporary supergroup 8in8. 8in8 is comprised of Amanda Palmer, Neil Gaiman, Ben Folds and Damian Kulash (of OKGO) They banded together in a studio for a day with the goal of writing and recording 8 songs in 8 hours, taking ideas submitted over Twitter. They ended up with 6 songs in 12 hours and released the album digitally the next day for a minimum donation of a dollar. All proceeds are going to a Boston based arts charity that I can’t remember off the top of my head right now.

I’m explaining this because there’s been a call to arms of sorts over twitter to create videos for these songs. I have an idea for one, but I lack the means to do it by myself. I would need someone with a digital video camera & editing software, a man and a woman willing to pretend to get in an emotional fight and wear two different outfits, and then a house with a front hallway and a dining room. Also a cheap photo frame (or two, depending on how many take we’ll need.)

^That’s the song. It is being sung by Damian, and in an OKGO fashion I want the video to be one long shot.

Anyone want to help? I’ll bake cupcakes 🙂
