Bangalore, October 28, 2016 : Imagine your thoughts to feature in a song by famous artists? Tata Sky Music+ brought a unique musical online activation where a diverse set of bands and musical talent from The Yellow Diary (@tydtheband) to Kanchan Daniel and The Beards (@KanchanDaniel1), Hriday Gattani to Sharma and The Besharams, lyrically portray your thoughts. Held live from 18th to 22nd October, across Twitter and Facebook, all the viewers had to do is answer the questions asked on the Tata Sky handle (@TataSky) with the hashtag #MyKindOfMusic.
Based on responses, the selected bands and artists created the song from scratch in real time along with videos and uploaded online within 8-9 hours. Only the best responses were selected for the tailor-made songs.
In response to Tata Sky’s daily dose of questions, a total of 10 songs were created in the last four days amongst the 4 bands. These music videos have garnered over a million engagements. The most popular of the lot was the Day Dream song by The Yellow Diary which has crossed the 50,000 views mark.
It was a 4 day-social marathon, 4 bands, 10 music compositions, real time music & video production, live behind the scene videos, 8 genres and 4 never been done 360 degree videos!
