We’re super excited to announce Sound Bites — a new contest series we’ll be hosting on SoundCloud, starting today! Here’s the deal: we give you an image, a video, a sound, or some other bit of inspiration, and you’ve got the weekend to create something.
You make a song, a field recording, a spoken poem, or whatever kind of sound you want, and submit it to our Sound Bites group for the competition. The only rules are:
- the recording should be something original
- you should make it this weekend
- and it should be about the same length as the video.
We’ll go through them, and announce the winner on our blog this Wednesday, May 11, sometime during office hours in our Berlin HQ. Deadline for submissions is Tuesday, May 10 at 10pm CET.
This time around, we’ve teamed up with Vimeo and the film maker Remyyy, who’s provided a brand new video as this week’s prompt. Check out the video below:
Now get to making some sounds! Remyyy, along with team members from Vimeo and SoundCloud will pick a winner, who will receive
- a Premium upgrade to their SoundCloud account
- a Vimeo Plus account
- and a SoundCloud t-shirt swag pack.
Two runners-up will also receive t-shirt swag packs! Submit your tracks with the DropBox here.
Also, in case you want to test out the track and the audio together, you can use the nifty “Instant Music Video” tool made by former SoundClouder Thor Kell.
