OCD023: Jean-Marc Lederman Experience / The Last Broadcast On Earth

The Last Broadcast on Earth is a concept album revolving around the possible last radio show on earth before...?

An intruiging music adventure unwraps in front of you in this multiplatform album em- bedded in a videogame.
3 questions:
Is this the latest day on Earth ?

Why is there only radio station broadcasting ?
What happens at the end of the night ?

From Julianne Regan to Arianna Froxeanne, from Tom Shear, Jay Aston to Frank M. Spinath, from Japan to the USA and Italy or India, 13 singers from 8 different countries gather around a mysterious project involving you, driving at night on a deserted road and listening to the only radio on air...

This multisensorial experience will come out first as a free videogame and a website, both
main part where an idea is spread over several platforms (IOS/Android/PC/MAc).
