Competition for young and upcoming composers and sound designers is now open

(lifePR) ( Köln, )
Creating your own world of music and sound is the goal of SoundTrack_Cologne’s annual EUROPEAN TALENT COMPETITION. Young and upcoming composers and sound designers can apply with their own musical ideas and sounds in the categories WDR FILMSCORE AWARD and SOUND DESIGN.

This year, the short film Do you like Godard? by Florian Vey has to be completed with an independent, original approach to interpret and support narration and picture level. There are no restrictions stylistically.

Contestants can either compose the score, do the sound design or both. They may also work together as a team of composer and sound designer. Sound designers are encouraged to submit sound-only solutions.

Entry deadline for the competition is June 30th, 2019.

The winner of the WDR FILMSCORE AWARD will have the opportunity to record an own composition with the WDR Funkhausorchester - for many young composers this would be the first possibility to record with a great orchestra and to start to fill their film-score business card.

The award for best SOUND DESIGN is a 5.1 cinematic mix down in the prestigious Cologne-based sound mixing studio TORUS GmbH.

The twelve finalists and their works will be presented during SoundTrack_Cologne to the audience and jury.

Short film “Do you like Godard?” by Florian Vey:

This year, the short film “Do you like Godard?” by Florian Vey was selected for the competition. The duration of the film is 7:02 minutes and was produced by the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF. In the film, two policemen interrogate a young woman who explains the reasons that caused her to kill her husband.

The competition screening and the award ceremony will take place on August 31st, 2019.

The contest is open to all active students in the fields of sound, music and/or composition at a European film or music school (without age limit) or young European creatives up to and including 30 years of age.
