Sony is presenting the users with a chance to remix a loved Bob Dylan Classic “Subterranean Homesick Blues”. The best person to remix the song will get an opportunity to go to South Africa on a trip.
Each of the components that had made up the classic number namely vocals, drums, electric guitar and bass lines have been separated to enable easier mixing. Additionally dozens of demo tracks by various artiste have been made available. The app decidedly is a ton of fun. How ever one has to wonder if Bob Dylan, a singer noted for his anti Establishment voice and singing anti war songs is the right choice for such a trivial pursuit.
The Remix Project also allows the users to upload their own tracks. Sony judges will decide on who gets to win the competition. Users are also being invited to the Facebook page to vote. Sony might have already scored a winner marketing tactic with this new endeavor.
