Vacuum-Music.com organized the next musical contest for you! The idea of the contest was born and discussed at our Foruum. It will be sort of Singing Fans Show, but with new features to provide more amusement for participants and spectators!
So, VacuumVision! Contest is opened and all Vacuum fans are invited to take part in it!
The main idea of the contest didn't change since Singing Fans Show. You need to record some Vacuum cover and send it to us! We will publish it and then the spectators will choose the winners in 2 nominations: "Best vocal" and "Best cover". And maybe there will be more nominations, we will see. After the public voting Mattias will kindly provide his opinion about the contest and the each cover, participated in it.
Now please read the the details of the contest:
The contest is lasting for the whole summer time and more. From June 1 to October 31, 2006
To participate in the contest, you should send us your cover for some Vacuum song + a couple of words about you and your photo. The info and photo (or avatar) can be true or not true - lets your fantasy work! ;)
You can not change the original composition of the Vacuum song. You can translate the lyrics to another language but you can not change the lyrics.
You can record the covers with your friends as duos or trios and so on :)
You can send any supportive materials of you as participant (i.e. collages, videos and so on), though it is not necessarily.
If you are a good musician, you can make a music for your cover yourself. The point of this competition is to hear Vacuum songs in your own arrangement! If no, you can use midi files from Vacuum midi rubric or make a karaoke file using Yogen Vocal Remover. And after all, you can record your cover without music :)
As soon as you record your cover, please send it with your info and supportive materials (if any) to firstname.lastname@example.org in mp3 or wma format. Or you can email us and we will provide you our FTP server to upload the song right there.
Each participant can send not more than 3 covers
Each participant will get a so called *press conference*, where spectators will ask him/her their questions and share their opinions about the cover. The press conference will replace the comments system, used in Singing Fans Show. It will be provided at our Foruum. If you don't want any press-conference, you can refuse it, no problem. But it's a good way to promote yourself among the spectators ;)
You can record the covers from any Vacuum album, but we and Mattias are interested in hearing the covers of the newest songs: from Your Whole Life Is Leading Up album or later :) (as the songs from the old albums were presented at Singing Fans Show).
