The world is gripped by vuvuzela fever, and Access is riding the vuvuzela for all it's worth.
They've announced their Virus Vuvuzela Contest:
Your mission is to write a song featuring either the Virus Vuvuzela patch or alternatively the Virus Vuvuzela samples provided by us. There are no restriction to the style of the song, we would like to encourage you though to use the Vuvuzela in a creative way.
You will recognize that both the Vuvuzela sample and patches provided are not necessarily in tune which keeps things more authentic. In case you would like to alter the patches or samples, feel free to do so. Use what you have - this is a sound design contest after all. It is not advisable though to alter the content beyond recognition since the contest is about the Vuvuzela’s sound.
The winner, to be chosen by the Access Music team, will receive a Virus TI Snow.
Deadline in the contest is August 30th, 2010. You can get the details on the Virus Vuvuzela Contest at the Access Facebook page.
