During the last week of April, The Dresden Doll‘s fearless leader Amanda Palmer and piano master Ben Folds will be locked in a studio, along with OK Go’s Damian Kulash and author Neil Gaiman (also know as Mr. Palmer), as part of Berklee College of Music’s Rethink Music Conference in Boston. The task at hand? The foursome must create an eight-song album between the hours of 4 p.m. and midnight on April 25. The songs will be debuted the next day at a special presentation, and later on that evening, the foursome will perform the new, raw material live for Rethink Music participants.

The Rethink Music Conference focuses on creating a thriving music industry and environment in the digital era, which includes crafting new and innovative ways to get music out there in the world. According to Palmer, an avid Tweeter: “The four of us are creative internet addicts with our own huge Twitter circles. This project is exciting as it will give us the opportunity to collide our circles.”

Not a Boston resident but a Palmer/Folds fan? Not a problem: The collaborative effort will be streamed live at, and the album will also be released on
