If you’re the type of person who likes nothing more than sharing their entire life through social networks, you may like this little experimental music project.
Track Me was conceived by Brooklyn-based band Riot !n Paris. The rock/hip-hop collective will be creating personalized songs based on strangers’ social media profiles – every day for four weeks.
Riot !n Paris will hit the studio to write, record and release new tracks based on what you broadcast about yourself on Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere.
The way it works is simple – you visit riottrackme.com and hit the Track Me button to ask the band to check out your tweets, posts, comments, likes, photos, and everything in between. I guess if you look interesting enough, the band will get to work and you’ll have your own personalized song.
To kick off the experiment, Riot !n Paris made a few examples based on some of their favorite social media personalities – check out Fox’s Mike Woods‘ song here:
