Coming up on April 1st 2013, Nimbus School of Recording Arts is launching the first annual Nimbus Mix Contest in partnership with Universal Music Canada, hosted by Indaba Music. High school students, aged 13-19 have the chance to create their own mix (or remix) of tracks from Hedley, Sam Roberts, and Karl Wolf for a chance to win a $25,000 scholarship to attend Nimbus. Starting April 1, 2013, students will be able to download the raw tracks and create their own unique mixes (or remixes). Contestants will need to upload their mixes by April 30, 2013 for public voting.
The top 10 mixes based on public vote will be judged by Nimbus co-founders Bob Ezrin and Garth Richardson, along with Universal President Randy Lennox. The high school student creating the winning mix will receive a $25,000 scholarship to attend the elite Nimbus School of Recording Arts in Vancouver.
“This contest is a real opportunity for a new generation of engineers and producers,” says legendary producer Bob Ezrin. “This is a chance for talented students to work on tracks from artists they hear on the radio, and to see what it takes to create a mix that stands up to industry standards.”
