Los Angeles, CA (March 17, 2005)–The deadline is closing in for entries to the 2005 AMP Awards for Excellence in TV Commercial Mixing. Sponsored by the Association of Music Producers (AMP), the event is in its fourth year and the second as a national competition honoring the skills of the post production audio engineer who mixes the final sound on television commercials. The deadline has been extended to April 4.
“This is the only award of its kind,” said AMP West Coast Chapter president Liz Myers of Trivers/Myers Music who chairs the event. “Most groups honor their own. Here we have an opportunity to recognize someone outside our own organization who nevertheless helps us showcase what we do best-great music and sound production.”
The association, which represents advertising industry music producers and composers, will host an awards evening to announce the winners in April. Awards are presented to the Mixer of the Year, as well as Finalists, Honorable Mention (for a campaign or spot), and a Judges’ Special Merit Award for a newcomer to the field. Last year’s Mixer of the Year was Bob Gremore of Mike Recording in West Los Angeles.
The Association of Music Producers (AMP) was founded in early 1998 for the purpose of educating its members, and the production and advertising community as a whole, on all facets of music production, from creation to final use. With its national headquarters in New York, and regional chapters in Los Angeles, Chicago, Florida and Minneapolis, AMP is the first organization to represent the commercial music industry on a broad platform of creative, business and community matters.
Entry forms are available from AMP’s web site.
