PowerFX launches Daria Musk remix contest on Google+ Hangouts

Soundation Daria Musk remix contest

PowerFX has announced its first ever Soundation Studio social remix contest on Google+ Hangouts with +Daria Musk.

After Spotify and SoundCloud another small Swedish music tech company, PowerFX Systems, is hoping to impact the digital music world with their cloud-based music making app Soundation Studio for Google+ Hangouts. Soundation combined with the multi-person video calling feature in Google+ Hangouts allows you to create or remix music with up to nine users in separate geographical locations and video chat together in real-time.

“Digital music making is usually a solitary affair”, states Bil Bryant of Soundation. “You sit in front of your computer and make your music or your remix, but with the Soundation in Hangout combination, a whole new collaborative experience is available. The video element and the potential of engaging anyone with an internet connection really expands the possibilities.”

To kick off this development, Soundation is teaming up with the exciting, new artist and web sensation, Daria Musk, for the first ever social music making remix contest. Daria Musk is one of the most successful artists on Google+, with over 3 million followers and has provided her song “Ghost” for the contest. Participants can login with their Google+ or Soundation account and launch Soundation Studio for Google+ Hangout and invite friends in the Google+ community. Once a remix is complete it is published to a Soundation group where each remix can be listened to and voted on with likes. Daria and dancer Karen Cheng will select the winner from the top ten most voted submissions and they will receive a Meet and Greet with Daria and Karen to explain the remix which will be broadcast via Hangout On Air to YouTube. Karen will make a video of herself dancing to the winner remix and post it on YouTube and Soundation will supply a Chromebook Pixel.

Deadline for remix submissions is November 10th 2013 6:00 pm EST (24:00 CET). The winning remix will win a Meet and Greet Hangout on Air with +Daria Musk to talk about how the remix was made.

The competition is open to teams of students enrolled at a college, university, or institution of higher learning who are pursuing a bachelor’s or associate’s degree program with a focus or concentration in fields related to Audio Engineering (Music Production, Audio Recording or Engineering, Electronic Media, Sound Recording, or a similar program). Using the same high quality gear that professional musicians and recording engineers rely on, these student teams will submit original compositions, which will be judged by a panel of esteemed musicians and industry authorities.

In early November, Shure will randomly select the ten competing schools from the eligible registration pool.

Competing teams must track and mix their original piece of music, which will be judged by a panel of industry professionals on its overall fidelity, clarity, sonic balance, and creativity in microphone selection and placement. Previous judges have included some of the industry’s top audio visionaries such as Ken Caillat, Mike Clink, Steve Churchyard, Frank Filipetti, Elliot Scheiner, and Leslie Ann Jones, among others.

The winning school will be awarded a new set of assorted Shure products, including KSM, SM, and Beta microphones, as well as SRH headphones, a prize package valued at more than $11,000. Runners-up and honorable mention school prizes will include select Shure microphones and headphones valued at $5,395 and $1,872, respectively. In addition, students on the top three recognized teams will receive prizes ranging from a KSM42 microphone, valued at $999, to a SM27-SC microphone, valued at $374, to SRH840 headphones, valued at $250.

“For nearly a decade we have been wowed by the caliber of student submissions we receive each year,” said Stephen Kohler, Senior Director of Marketing, Shure Americas. “During this milestone year, we anticipate recordings will once again impress us on all fronts—creativity, passion, mixing, and microphone techniques.”

The contestants chosen in the random drawing will be posted on Shure’s website on or around November 11, 2013, and dedicated microphone lockers will be sent in the days to follow.

Soniccouture launches User Tracks Competition

Soniccouture

Soniccouture has announced a User Tracks Competition, offering users of Soniccouture products a chance to win $500 USD store credit.

We get sent quite a lot of links to music that uses our stuff via email or Facebook or Twitter, and we like that, we really do.

But the problem is, it then gets lost – it isn’t all collected in one place. So, we’d like to start up a long term user track library. Eventually the tracks will appear somewhere on the relevant product page, but for now, we thought we’d kick things off with a small competition.

So – send us a track, any track, as long as it uses a Soniccouture instrument or sound, even the free ones, and the best 10 will be voted on by you, and the one with the most votes will win $500.

We’ve set it up so that it is done via Soundcloud, because it’s really handy. We figure most of you will have a Soundcloud account already, but if not, it’s well worth having.

The Winner will be announced October 31st 2013.
