What would Superfly, Saturday Night Fever and The Graduate be without the music? Good movies, but something would be missing. Musicians have long seen the potential of partnering with filmmakers to release work, so what about partnering with authors?
The rise of enhanced eBooks offers musicians and writers a new avenue of creative expression, potentially. Imagine reading a new Jennifer Egan book with its original soundtrack by Sonic Youth. It would give a whole new meaning to the term audiobook.
It could help authors find new readers and bands find new listeners. Plus the music videos could be about characters from the book, making author promo videos a lot more interesting instead of just another talking head author shot.
