Starting November 1st 2015, the Deutsche Symphonie-Orchester Berlin (DSO Berlin) invites you to take part in the Remix Contest 2015-16.
This unusual experiment is not only a challenge where you can prove your skills, but also a chance to experience an inspiring journey.
The journey starts with exclusive samples of Anton Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4 and helps you embark on your own, very personal Romantic Revolution. Not only can you remix or rearrange these samples, but you can make them your own, further developing the classical sound material in line with your own artistic ideas. With this contest, the DSO Berlin and SONOS are aiming to bridge the gap between two musical genres and to explore spectacular new sound experiences.
We’re looking forward to receiving your contributions by 31 January 2016.
The patron of the competition is the successful musician, DJ and producer Henrik Schwarz. Together with him, a distinguished jury will select five prizewinners. The best tracks will be published by the renowned label Sony Classical.
