Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) June 3, 2010
Soon to explode onto your computer screens, Rock Control is a new concept unlike anything ever seen before in the world of music and entertainment.
Rock Control challenges the public to create a world-class rock band, piece by piece, then guide it to global success. From picking the individual talents and putting them together in the band, to managing them through increasing band-mania, Rock Control promises to be a thrilling rollercoaster ride, channeling band and audience towards the defining moment – a shot at getting a Number 1 single in every chart around the world.
It’s a brilliantly ambitious, iconoclastic format, because Rock Control harnesses the power of modern media to let the global public – rather than the music industry – call the shots. Mark Bowness, creator and co-founder of Rock Control, explains: “At the end of nine months the public will have put together a band, decided on its look and sound, gained world-wide media coverage, and released a song into every singles chart. This really is the public attempting to defy the traditional music business in order to take over every Number 1 slot on the face of the planet. It’s got rock ‘n’ roll attitude, and if it works, we’ll create music history.”
The first step is finding the would-be rock stars; the egomaniac singers, the virtuoso guitarists, the enigmatic keyboard players, the crazy drummers. http://www.rockcontrol.com is calling for individual artists from around the world, who want the chance to make the final-line up. Hundreds of musicians have already uploaded their 2 minute video auditions, from even as far as Australia and South Africa and have begun the battle for the public's attention. Tom Salmon, co-founder of Rock Control, says: “It’s incredible to see how word has spread. Type 'Rock Control' into Facebook and you’ll see passionate and talented artists who’ve launched their own groups to get the public to vote for them.”
Local California musician M.'. d'Ziur (http://live.rockcontrol.com/profile/mdziur) has uploaded an audition to the Rock Control website in the hope of becoming the band's bassist and primary musical arranger/composer and see their own music spread around the world. M.'., from Los Angeles is a full time musician. Before the USA was hit by its current economic woes M.'. was an Information Systems Architect and technology specialist by day but has always dreamed of rockin' it out on the world stage. M.'., explains, “I've always wanted to contribute something that will stand the test of musical time, like Mozart or The Beatles. I've played in bands all my life but none of them ever achieved greatness... maybe with Rock Control and the global mind behind this endeavor IT will happen for us few, we lucky few!”
Rock Control is also encouraging the public to register for free as Band Managers, who will then vote on every aspect of the band – from choosing the final line-up to deciding how they look, what shows they play, and ultimately, which song which will be chosen for the Number 1 attempt. The public will experience all the highs and the lows, chatting to the band via web-cams, watching their video diaries, and getting up close and personal. And Band Managers will be rewarded for their involvement by earning 'Rock Dollars', which they can exchange for once-in-a-lifetime experiences and a glimpse of the rock star life: helicopter and limo rides to gigs, Hollywood holidays, appearing on TV and hanging out with the stars.
After nine months of thrills and spills, Rock Control will culminate in 'Rock 'til You Drop', a live spectacular where the results of the Number 1 shot will be announced, and where the band and band managers will party together till dawn. Where the band goes from there – total global domination or rock and roll burnout – nobody yet knows…but it won’t be the end of the story.
The last word goes to Mark Bowness: “Does the global public have the passion it takes to claim the Number 1 slot in every chart around the world? Fasten your seatbelts and get ready to rock, because we’re about to find out.” Rock Control – Everyone’s A Rock Star.
