CASTING CALL:
Aqua+ and SOUND vs SOUND announce digital casting call for music reality TV series that focuses on upcoming musician/producers.

Toronto, Ontario, November 15, 2011 -- SOUND vs SOUND has announced an electronic casting call for producer/musicians who would like to participate in the show as contestants. A new reality competition TV series that follows musicians, composers, arrangers and producers as they face musical challenges across different genres, SOUND vs SOUND will be filmed February 5-18, 2012 in Toronto, 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 judge 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.

Filmed in Toronto Canada from Feb 5-18th, 2012, SOUND vs SOUND is the only TV series that incorporates meaningful dialogue between established and emerging musicians. The winner of the SOUND vs SOUND competition will receive a one-album contract with SvS Records and $25,000 in cash.
