Take A Sneak Peak At WholeWorldBand At The Music Show
RDS, 25 & 26 February 2012
WholeWorldBand, a revolutionary new interactive tool for iPhone 4 / 4s and iPad2 developed by Kevin Godley (Godley & Crème, 10CC) and Andy Wood (Hypergallery, Cubic Motion) that lets you create music with other musicians and music fans around the world in both sound and video, will be showcased at this year’s Music Show which takes place in RDS, Dublin on 25 & 26 February 2012.
Kevin Godley and Andy Wood will demonstrate the new music sharing, revenue generating app for the first time at the 2012 Music Show. The WholeWorldBand app, which allows musicians to collaborate and share their creations online, will then be available to download from the iTunes store across the world from March 2012.
A number of major recording artists including The Edge (U2), Ronnie Wood (Rolling Stones), Gavin Friday, Gemma Hayes, Cathy Davey, Mik Pyro (Republic of Loose) and Liam Ó Maonlaí (Hot House Flowers) are currently creating performances for WholeWorldBand and will be uploading new or collaborating on existing tracks in the near future. Attendees at The Music show will be able to check out the WholeWorld Band App over the weekend and work with Kevin Godley to collaborate on tracks from some of these artists at the show.
Musicians and music fans from all over the world will be able to contribute and combine a selection of video performances, including their own, fr
om the WholeWorldBand library to create their own favourite band line-up. And they will also have the opportunity to earn money from their performance.
Kevin Godley said “WholeWorldBand is a revolutionary new online music tool that provides a new platform for distribution
while offering the opportunity of new revenue streams for up and coming and established musicians and bands and, in fact, anyone.”
The WholeWorldBand App allows you to originate a track or add yourself to performances by well-known artists and bands by playing along with them, or substituting yourself for any member of a band.
WholeWorldBand lets musicians record and film while playing or singing along to any track on the menu using the microphone and cameras on their iPhone or iPad then upload a unique mix of yourself plus other users to Facebook and YouTube etc.
In WholeWorldBand, musicians can upload their own original tracks and earn money when other users download and share them. The more performances that are downloaded, the more musicians can earn.
“It's fantastic that The Music Show is the first place that people will get to see this great project in action,” Hot Press editor Niall Stokes said. “Kevin Godley is a real visionary – exactly the kind of ambitious genius to carry off something special like the WholeWorldBand idea. And he has found the perfect partner for his grand scheme in Andy Wood, who founded Hypergallery, a portal where you can buy all the great cover artwork. Between them, they have created an app that has amazing long term potential. People will see just how much at The Music Show. It is a really exciting development that we're proud to be part of.”
