(Dave Molter | Posted 2010-05-16)
MXP4, the leading developer of interactive
music solutions, today announced a partnership with music fan engagement
platform FanShake that sees the debut of the latest MXP4 technology,
Karaoke. With Karaoke, artists and labels can offer an online application
that enables fans to sing along to the backing tracks of their songs. Fans
can record their performance via their computer's webcam. The performance,
captured in real time by the MXP4 Karaoke application, can then be shared
The partnership with FanShake gives users the chance to record their own
versions of "Lost in Berlin," the latest hit from French Pop Idol winner
Christophe Willem. The FanShake community can then vote for their favorite
Karaoke version. The top six participants will be invited to the rehearsals
for Willem's show at the Zenith de Paris and will also receive tickets for
the gig itself.
The FanShake partnership is the latest addition to MXP4's "MXP4 Everywhere"
roadmap, which ensures MXP4's interactive music technology is readily
available in third party services, apps and music formats. MXP4 will release
more Karaoke applications with major artists in the coming months.
In the past year, more than 100 major recording artists including David
Guetta, Michael Jackson and Britney Spears, and major brands including Air
France Music and Coca-Cola, have used MXP4-powered interactive music apps on
the web and iPhone to drive engagement, viral distribution and purchases.
MXP4 data shows that fans use interactive music for an average of 9.1
minutes per track, drive 75% of traffic virally and click through to
purchase as much as 3% of the time. For more information, visit www.mxp4.com.
