Start from Scratch Challenge – Journey – Win items from our Sound Shop!
This month, Soundation invites you to pack up the car, hit the road for an adventure and get inspirations for your new song. Whether it be the wind blowing through open car windows, your better half frolicking in the water, or friends flipping burger patties over the camp fire – find your favourite moment and make music for the open road with us this summer.
Think Michel Gondry-directed music vdo for “Star Guitar” by The Chemical Brothers, an SXSW-winning music vdo for “Luv Deluxe” by Cinnamon Chasers about a road trip gone wrong, or Avicii’s recording sessions at Monument Valley in 2016. It’s all about discoveries and journeys or simply just being on the move. You can rap and go for the metaphorical route, like Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road”, or give your track a medicinal quality with dubstep sounds like “Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites” from Skrillex. (A scientific study finds that dubstep can save you from mosquito bites, making him your camping trips’ best friend. True story.)
If the most unplanned adventures are often the best ones, perhaps spontaneous music making is a secret to creating great songs. Submit an original track based on a theme of journey before the deadline (31 July 2019, 23:00 CET) and 3 winners – users with the most unique, creative and theme-relevant track – will get to pick any 3 items from our Sound Shop, get their track featured and have their work published on our social media.
How to enter the challenge:
• Publish the track and post it in this group
