Undiscovered Artists Given Chance To Score A Movie Soundtrack

World-first competition will put 10 musicians’ work onto the silver screen

Music video site MUZU.tv is offering musicians from all over the world the chance to be a part of film history.  Launching today, Soundtraxs is the first-ever competition that gives independent music artists the opportunity to create the soundtrack for a major motion picture.
 
Soundtraxs is the brainchild of British independent production company NyAC and will see entrants compete online for their music to feature on the soundtrack of the hotly-anticipated new film Relative Desire by BAFTA award-winning director Michael Baig Clifford, starring Imogen Poots (Fright Night, 28 Weeks Later, V for Vendetta) and Harry Treadaway (Fish Tank, Control, Brothers of the Head).
 
Entrants simply download any of the movie scenes available on http://www.MUZU.tv/Soundtraxs, sync the video with an original music track and upload to MUZU.tv. The competition is free to enter and the top 50 tunes (ranked by the public according to the number of views on MUZU.tv, ratings and comments, tweets on Twitter and plays on social networks such as
 
Facebook) will then be considered by an expert panel who will choose the final 10 tracks to appear in the film. Winners will also:
 
• Re-record their track in a professional studio
• Receive a sync fee covering use of their music in the movie, Relative
Desire
• Receive revenue from the movie soundtrack album
 
“Soundtraxs is a world first. It’s a fantastic opportunity for artists of all levels and genres to get their music heard on one of the biggest stages possible. A movie soundtrack is usually the preserve of established artists only, but this project is helping to break down those barriers. In addition, by simply entering the competition and uploading their music to MUZU, artists have the potential to make some money from their recordings too" – Ciaran Bollard, C.E.O and co-founder of MUZU
