Legend of the world music scene Baaba Maal released his new album ‘Television’ earlier this month.
To celebrate the release, Palm Pictures is launching a competition to find a new, fresh remix of the album’s title track.
Baaba sees language as an instrument and he searches for different ways to diversify his music- ‘Television’ sees him working with New York’s Brazilian Girls to blend West African musical traditions with electronic dance music – so the challenge is to use stems of Baaba’s vocals in ‘Television’ as your own instrument to create an innovative and experimental remix.
The winning entry will be selected by Baaba Maal himself and the remix will be released on his official website www.baabamaal.tv. The winner will also receive a prize of £200 for the track and you will be credited with the remix.
So if you’ve got creativity flowing through your veins, and a love of moulding music to make your own, this is it the competition for you.
All remixes should be sent as an MP3 to firstname.lastname@example.org before 12:00 GMT on August 10th 2009. The winner will need to provide Palm Pictures with the aiff/master of the file once selected.
