The Band's search for its Dream Band takes a break for a couple of months as the Band changes its focus. As a recap, our Dream Band currently consists of the following members:
For the next two months, we were either going to look at Soundtrack music, and Classical Music. And it was decided that it would be Soundtrack music first!
NOMINATE YOUR BEST SOUNDTRACK COMPOSER
Until Wednesday 14th April 2010, I am looking to you to nominate who you think are the best composers of Soundtracks out there in the business. I am looking for between 8 and 16 nominations, and those nominated will go into the "It's A Knockout" contest to decide who takes the title of the Band's Favourite Soundtrack Composer.
NOMINATE YOUR BEST PIECE OF SOUNDTRACK MUSIC
Until Wednesday 14th April 2010, I am looking to you to nominate what are your favourite pieces of soundtrack music out there in the business. I am looking for between 8 and 16 nominations, and those nominated will go into the "It's A Knockout" contest to decide which piece will takes the title of the Band's and DM's Favourite Piece of Music from a Soundtrack.
IT'S A KNOCKOUT THREADS
Once we have our nominations for both categories, there will be two "It's A Knockout" threads running - one to pick the winner of the composers, and one to pick the piece of music.
TUNE OR NO TUNE
As a result, for the following weeks, some great soundtracks from films will be picked for "Tune or No Tune":
- Monday 5th April 2010 --> Now We Are Free by Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard
- Monday 12th March 2010 -->
- Monday 19th March 2010 -->
- Monday 26th March 2010 -->
If you want to nominate a song that you think demonstrates amazing soundtrack qualities for "Tune or No Tune", please contact Corki by PM or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
ORIGINAL vs. COVER
After the success this thread had in September, this thread is still going strong. Each week, 2 songs will be posted for your to vote on. Corki will be running this until further notice. Also, if you want to run the thread for a week, please drop Corki a PM. Â
There is a general discussion thread about Soundtrack artists, which was started by Krakalakachkn. You will notice he started it back in February, but I hid it until now. It is very much open to discussion! And there is a poll as well.
The local radio station of one of our members holds a contest every March to determine the best in the rock genre. We are currently coming to a close with the vote. To get involved with the remaining ties at KSHE95 Radio station contest, check out their website and use your mobile/cell phone to text your votes. However, you can also get involved with the Band of the Red Hand, as we will be running the same brackets at the same time - but free! And we are drawing to a close, so check out the link below to find out where we are!
