Crazy Mix Contest 2011 - till march 13

Post by wanway » Mon Feb 21, 2011 10:32 pm

Hi Live users,

The 3rd edition of the Crazy Mix (Mixage Fou in french) contest is open for 3 weeks (until March 13)
You have to make a crazy mix from the 10 sounds available on the website (all the effects are allowed):

http://www.mixagefou.com

The only constraint is the duration: 80 seconds (you do not have to mix all the sounds, you can only use one part, but it is forbidden to use other sounds)

This year you can play in 2 formats : in stereo 2.0 and in surround 4.0. So each participant can play 2 times.

There are some nice gifts to win including Akai controllers and a 3-day stay in Cannes during the Cannes Film Festival 2011.

There are 15 partners (juries) this year who each choose freely their favorite Crazy Mix (no 1st prize, no 2nd prize ... but the independent choice of each jury) There will be at least 15 gifts and probably 15 winners.

This contest is organized on a voluntary basis and receives no money in order to exist. You can help in giving this information to your friends around you.
I remain at your disposal.........

Good contest :)

Just uploaded a mix which you can find under the name VINE_JASON. Those little clicks and stomps were great for building a drum track out of.

Hope you like it! All the best,

You can do all effects on the raw material...no limits

For the judgement, there are 15 independant juries, and they will each choose their best crazy mix with their own criterias... (they do not all come from music, for example ENJMIN is a video game high degree school, CREADOC is a documentary high degree school...)

Thanks for your participation ScarKord, nice :wink:

It is sure, all effects :wink:

For the Cannes prize during the film festival 2011 it is exclusively for the surround category. It is a stay during 3 days (for 2) in a very nice residence (not an hotel) with a swimming pool and a sea view... but the better part is that there is a bonus prize with an half day meeting with movie professionals and composers (offered by Piste Rouge, french sound studio). The trip to Cannes is not included.

I put a real picture of the residence here...
