Win an exclusive Freddie Mercury original track!
(Adapted from an idea by ern2150)
In honour of Freddie's 60th birthday, (and as a rebellion against the Evil Empire's ‘Rank 1' remixes), I propose the first real Queenzone competition: 'The Queenzone Freddie's Birthday Challenge'.
Open equally to those who like to create their own music (anyone recall Freddie Mercury and Stuart Leathem’s: ‘Nobody Understands Me’) or unofficial hybrid or fanmix versions, as the idea is to create new versions or mixes to rival those on the latest official CD sets.
Tracks like ‘Let’s Turn It On (Acapella)’, ‘I Was Born To Love You (Vocal & Piano)’, or any of the isolated 5.1 Freddie vocal tracks are begging for newly scored or karaoke-sampled backings, while previous examples of great fan-mixes would have to include the Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson ‘There Must Be More To Life Than This’ hybrid, and the ‘New York At Last’ remix
Anyone can enter as many times as they like, using many different styles, or even their own arrangements and instrumentation - but at the end of the day, it has to be a Freddie (or Freddie based) track.
I hope to enlist the help of another few 'Queenzone regulars' as volunteer judges to share that responsibility, as all new material will be posted in the 'fan mixes' forum anyway, but at the end of the day, the collective decision of that panel shall be final.
The only stipulation is that all submitted tracks to the competition must be in FLAC or as high a bit-rate as possible, so that Queenzone readers can cut their own alternative Birthday CD of favourite alternative mixes.
To the overall winner, I shall donate a very special Freddie track. Unfortunately, I can not donate any runner-up prizes. A closing date will be confirmed for c12 weeks time.
PS: Please post all entries in the FAN MIXES:’ The Queenzone Freddie's Birthday Challenge competition' thread as it keeps them all in the one location!) http://www.queenzone.com/queenzone/forumnew/forum_topic_view.aspx?Q=842564
