AKG Acoustics has donated several pieces of equipment to www.Songlounge.com, a new Internet-based quarterly song contest site. Among assorted cash and prizes that will be awarded every three months, Songlounge.com contest winners will receive an AKG D880 live performance microphone or a pair of AKG K66 stereo headphones.
According to Songlounge.com's founder Eric Serrano, "AKG's reputation is impeccable, and we're proud to be associated with a company that has become a household name among musicians all over the world. The involvement of AKG and other reputable manufacturers helps us gain the trust of musicians who have come to rely on these companies for their good, quality products and excellent customer service throughout the years."
"AKG feels that Songlounge.com is genuinely interested in helping rising artists," said Sarita Stewart, marketing manager at AKG Acoustics. "Through our donation, we are optimistic that AKG is contributing to what will hopefully become successful musical careers and that our technology will play a continuous role in those careers as they progress."
Entries for the contest are judged by a panel of music industry professionals working with major-label artists or music production companies in Los Angeles. Songs are judged on the basis of melody (hook), structure (composition) and mood.
