Sound Vs. Sound, a new reality competition TV series that follows musicians, composers, arrangers and producers as they face musical challenges across different genres, announces an international electronic casting call for producer/musicians who would like to participate in the show as contestants. The Sound Vs. Sound series will be filmed on February 5-18, 2012, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Deadline for submissions is December 1, 2011
Similar to other reality challenge series, such as Project Runway or Iron Chef, each episode of Sound Vs. Sound features musical challenges that push the cast members/contestants outside of their comfort zone.
Sound Vs. Sound also features legendary musical guests on every episode who will serve as mentors to the contestants, and a panel of celebrity judges. The judges also serve as mentors for the cast members/contestants, and provide each contestant with a 20-minute consultation during the time in which they are addressing the challenge.
At the completion of each challenge, the judges' panel decides who wins that week’s challenge after performances in the last act of each episode. In several cases Gold and Platinum artists will be playing alongside of the contestants as they present their projects. Winning tracks from each episode will be sold with the proceeds going to select charities.
Applicants must be able to think on their feet and be well-versed musicians who can perform, arrange, produce, and rapidly interpret music from different genres into something compelling and original.
The winner of the Sound Vs. Sound competition will receive a single-album contract with SvS Records and $25,000 in cash.
Submissions must be in digital format with links sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include short background information and accomplishments (up to 250 words); a photograph; a link to a sample of production, composition, performance, or remixing; and a link to a YouTube video of the applicant speaking on camera.
All musical genres are welcome. All types of instrumentalists and singers will be considered. Contestants may reside in any country.
The deadline for digital submissions is December 1, 2011.
