To celebrate the UK launch of Deezer a unique, creative installation will be staged online and in London from 19-24 October.
The Deezer Music Wall will be built from hundreds of hand-illustrated postcards conveying the stories behind the nation’s favourite tracks as they are shared through Facebook. The wall will come alive for music fans all over the country through a Facebook application featuring a gigapixel image updating the latest postcards as they are created by a team of illustrators. This is how it works:
Think of a favourite track, go to www.facebook.com/deezermusicwall and tell us why you love it.
A team of illustrators will then hand-illustrate your track and its story onto a postcard and add it to the Music Wall at Old Truman Brewery in real time.
Explore the wall and zoom in on individual postcards to discover the stories behind the nation’s love affair with music; listen to tracks others have chosen. Share your discoveries with friends on Facebook and Twitter.
By entering your track choice you are immediately in the draw to win a Sonos Play-3 Wireless Hi-Fi System or a Deezer Premium+ account. And by tweeting about the Deezer Music Wall, you are in with the chance to receive your illustrated postcard in the mail.
