Over the years, technology-assisted musical learning has become more and more accessible to an ever broader audience. This could not be more true in schools all around the world, where the integration of creative music technology is giving students even more ways to develop and express their ideas. The Ableton Summer Music Challenge is an attempt to support this cause by asking students to get creative with music over their summer vacations and perhaps help their school out in the process.
Taking the Ableton Summer Music Challenge is easy: First, students upload their tracks to SoundCloud to enter the competition. Then, they share their track with the world via their favorite social networks. The tracks with the most plays by August 31, 2010 will be presented to the official Ableton Summer Music Challenge Jury. The Jury will then select the grand prize winners. There will be two competition age groups in the Ableton Summer Music Challenge: under 15 and 15 to 18.
Prizes for schools and students include:
• Ableton Live Intro audio production platform
• Novation Launchpad midi controller
• Novation NIO 2/4 audio interface
• SoundCloud pro account (1 year)
• Loopmasters sample collections
The Ableton Summer Music Challenge runs until August 31, 2010. To take part, or for more information, please visit: www.abletonsummermusicchallenge.com
