From now until October 31, 2009, composers must deliver finished work as a link to an MP3 file placed in the 2009 Contest Entries topic location on the Soundsonline forum in the Music Cafe. Any style or genre is acceptable for up to two minutes in duration. EASTWEST will select a winner based on the most interesting use of EASTWEST instruments.
The EASTWEST "Complete Composers Collection" PLAY Edition includes:
The winner (and EastWest customers) can customize the collection to replace any titles licensed already.
"The competition is an excellent opportunity for a composer to sharpen his or her skills, with the possibility of winning a great prize," says Doug Rogers, founder and Producer of EASTWEST. "Our virtual instrument collections are recorded through the finest studio equipment with the best talent available, creating great sounding instruments. With so many styles of instruments and voices represented in our collections, it is very gratifying to hear all the imaginative entries our competitions generate."
Contest entries are limited to compositions that exclusively feature EASTWEST and EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP virtual instruments. Only vocals created with EASTWEST or EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP vocal virtual instruments are acceptable. The contest is limited to one entry per composer and all compositions must be original. The winner will retain ownership of his or her composition. Music that has been entered in any other EASTWEST competition or in the Music Cafe section of the EASTWEST forum is not eligible for consideration. The winner will be announced by November 15, 2009. Comments from the judges about the compositions will be limited to the top five finalists. Please visit the website for a complete set of rules.
