Innovative popular rockers MARCY PLAYGROUND and INDABA MUSIC (www.indabamusic.com), the leading suite of online tools for musicians, are excited to announce a Studio Access program that will give independent musicians and fans around the world the opportunity to be included on the band’s next album and to get paid for their work.
Instrumental parts (stems) from Marcy Playground’s newest album, Leaving Wonderland…In A Fit Of Rage, will be made available online to Indaba community members so they can remix and re-imagine the tracks from August 26th – October 20th. John Wozniak, Marcy Playground founder, will select his favorite remix of each of the album’s 12 songs, for inclusion on a very special, and uniquely Indaba, version of the album. This new Indaba version of Leaving Wonderland… will be sold to the public, with remixers being credited and financially compensated in the form of royalties from the sales. “We are all pioneering a new age in the music business right now,” said Wozniak. “The industry is evolving so fast it’s dizzying. For me, the innovations arising as a result are just too cool to ignore. And, really let’s face it, for all of us musicians, the Indaba Music community is, by far, the most interesting and exciting thing to come along in years. In terms of business, however; these are totally uncharted waters. Basically anyone in the world who wants to remix our new album can, and… if their remix ends up on this new Indaba version of the album they’ll receive a proper royalty for it. This is a unique idea that we are bringing to a unique community of brave and creative men and women from all around the world, and I’m convinced that this collaboration will be educational, and ultimately a really positive experience for everyone involved.”
