Here’s an interesting article from Kevin Fitchard of GigaOm about a crowdsourced project involving a Swedish DJ and producer Avicii and the mobile company Ericsson allowing producers and Avicii fans around the world to collaborate on the producer’s new single.  Fitchard writes: “The project is called Avicii x You, and on its website, you can listen to and download the basic chord progression for the song’s planned melody. Starting on Wednesday, the site will begin accepting submissions (the process is still a bit vague) for audio samples of a fully developed melody using the chord layout, pitch and key Avicii has indicated. Over the next two months, the site will begin accepting submissions for the song’s bassline, effects, rhythms and vocals. The finished single will be released as a single on Feb. 26, coinciding with the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.”  Read more.
