Oxfam is making a ‘song and dance’ about poverty…
Here at audioBoo HQ we love a bit of noise – so when Oxfam approached us about a noisy idea to make a song and dance during this year’s festival season our little ears pricked up.
So what is Oxfam’s Song and Dance all about then?
Well, Oxfam is giving people the chance to record a track with stars from the music world and those that get involved will be part of a movement of change.
According to Oxfam the 85 richest people own the same amount of wealth as the poorest half of the world’s population - the gap between rich and poor is growing.
Oxfam believe this is wrong, and will be teaming up with some of the most current names in the music industry, to produce a music track using the public’s collective voice to ensure leaders listen – and act.
So starting at Glastonbury talent scouts will roam about the festivals recording sounds – festival-goers can choose their instrument; sing a note, clap, or skit. The Oxfam marquee will provide the stage; people can stretch their vocal cords in the charity’s virtual studio, and bust a move on camera which could form part of the exclusive music video.
As the festival season closes, the fantastic audio-visual remix act, Eclectic Method will be splicing it all together into an amazing crowd-sourced, mash up festival track to be show cased by Oxfam in the hope to really make a song and dance about poverty.
Phone your noise in
Here’s the clever thing though, you don’t have to be at a festival to get involved, just call 0203 515 9126 and leave a noise or a simple sound on Oxfam’s audioBoo voice mail. Make sure you fill in your details, because you’ll get a name credit on the song.
Here’s an example to get you going….
This campaign is music to our ears - so get involved now guys!
