Den svenske litteraturbloggen owlit har spennende nyheter i dag, og selv om jeg ikke har prøvd dette selv ennå, skal jeg sannelig ta det for meg i kveld når masteroppgaven min ligner litt mer på en masteroppgave. Spotify brukes nemlig på en helt ny måte, nemlig til å skape litteratur som ligner på den vi selv leste i slitte R. L. Stine-bøker på 90-tallet der vi kunne velge «Hvis du vil åpne døren, gå til side 47. Hvis du vil bli stående, gå til side 103.» Hvis du trenger spotify-invitasjon, kan du legge igjen en kommentar til denne posten.

Dette står på Spotifys hjemmesider:

Hurts and Manchester novelist Joe Stretch have created a wonderfully unique experience on Spotify in which you get to play the protagonist. Narrated by actress Anna Friel, ‘Don’t Let Go’ is an interactive audio novel which utilises Spotify in a completely new and unexpected way. Each chapter of the novel has been published as a track on Spotify, and can be located by typing a unique code into the search field.

After listening to each chapter of the story you’ll be offered a choice of what to do next, along with the unique code for each action. Your mission – should you choose to accept it – is to stop arch villain Guy Lockhart from distributing his heartbreak cocktail and condemning humankind forever to a loveless, empty existence.

Along the way you’ll also hear extracts of music from Hurts’ brand new album “Happiness”. If you manage to get to one of the story’s eleven possible endings without dying, you’ll be rewarded with an exclusive preview of an album track. So choose wisely…
