It’s that time of year again – time to get creative!
This year’s track is “Burn Through the Artifice” by House of Hummingbirds. You can download all stems here.
It is important to note that all stems were recorded in 96K quality, so the download files are quite large. However, all mixes and remixes must be submitted in 44.1K (you can still mix in whatever sample rate you prefer).
Guidelines for the two submission categories:
MIXES will be judged based upon how well you can maintain the band’s artistic intent while creating a solid-sounding mix.
REMIXES are judged based upon what you decide to do with the piece.
The official deadline for all submissions is February 3rd! Prizes to be announced soon (they’re so awesome, we’re just letting the tension grow).
Preparations for the next Mix/Remix Competition have begun! We started off the year’s events with our annual open tracking session, featuring this year’s band, Naked Dance. The session was led by head engineer Jameson Eisele with assistant engineer Mitchell Graham. It was great to see members of the AES community come out and help with setting up the session. Thanks to Naked Dance for great material!
We forgot to take pictures, but here’s the patch bay.
The members of Naked Dance in live performance: Andrew Bishop, Jeremy Edwards, and Steve Rush
This event is open to all current students of the University of Michigan. Check the website at 12pm on April 6th, 2012 to find the multitrack of a new song by the supremely talented Candace Sosa. Download the files, pop open your favorite editor, and let your creative juices flow. We’ll be taking two types of submissions (you may have figured this out from the title of the event): Mixes and Remixes.
Join us this Saturday March 24th at the Audio Studio to record the raw files that will be released for our mix/remix competition. The tracking session will be led by Rishi Daftuar who will share his thoughts and insights throughout the process. There will be time for questions and discussion briefly during the session and during tear down. Come hang out for any time that works for you and we would also remind you to attend the PAT Showcase later that evening!
