MasterMix – your chance to win an ASE bursary worth R 100K
MasterMix is calling all SA Sound Engineer’s to mix a Freshlyground track.
To commemorate the 10th year of the media and entertainment trade show – Mediatech Africa and Academy of Sound Engineers (ASE) have collaborated with Freshlyground to launch MasterMix – an inspiring new competition for emerging sound engineers.
With incredible prizes valued at over R130 000 up for grabs, and the opportunity to mix the separates of Refuge, an unreleased Freshlyground track, the organisers have capped the entries at 100.
Even more exciting – the winning mix may be released on an upcoming Freshlyground album.
Applications are now open, and the competition closes at noon on 5 July.
To enter you must be a South African resident, 18 years or older, with access to audio mixing equipment.
The overall winner will receive an ASE bursary valued at R100 000 and a selection of gear sponsored by Wild and Marr valued at R30 000.
Hopefuls must complete the online form and pay the R100 competition entry fee.
The first 100 to complete this initial step in the competition will be guaranteed a spot. The separates will be made available to them and they will have until 5 July to enter their work.
Preliminary judging will be completed by lecturers from the ASE and a top 8 short list will be announced on 11 July ahead of Mediatech which runs from 17 – 19 July.
A rubric will be used to ensure a fair process and the judges will be looking for a mix that’s professional enough for public release.
They will consider overall energy/vibe of the mix, tone, levels, and panning and effects and the gut feel of the mix will also be taken into consideration.
Mix a Freshlyground track in this awesome MasterMix competition and stand a chance to win a bursary and prizes valued at R130K.
