Toronto, Canada (November 16, 2011)—A new producer/musician competition TV series, Sound vs. Sound, has announced an electronic casting call for potential contestants.
The TV series follows musicians, composers, arrangers and producers as they face musical challenges across different genres, and 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 noted 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.
The winner of the Sound vs. Sound competition will receive a one-album contract with SvS Records and $25,000 in cash.
Submissions must be in digital format with links sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions should include brief (up to 250 words) background information and accomplishments; 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 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.
