The 500 character pitch

I had to sum up the essence of why we think our idea is exciting and worth funding to take it further. Here’s what I put:

how it works

Twelve local up-and-coming musicians are selected to represent their city. Each artist chooses an urban location to perform live (a cafe, a railway bridge, a street corner, a chip shop). Videos are made of each performance, beginning with an interview introduction from the band about their chosen city location.

The videos are placed on an map. To listen to the album mScapers must navigate the city with open ears. Visiting all 12 locations unlocks a personal URL to download the mp3s.
