Default Crazy Sound Contest !!!

Hi to all digi users,

I am in charge of a Sound Contest called "Mixage Fou" or "Crazy Mix"

It is a french contest that is already opened at this adress : http://www.mixagefou.com/
(when you access the website click on the bottom right "american flag" to access to the english version)
It ends the 21 of march 2010

The aim of the game: to download the sounds available on the website (go and click on the “Download Sounds” button) and make an original creation out of it. Every effects is tolerated and even fostered (amplify, speed, pitch, and tempo change, reverse, repeat and so on)
A single obligation: to send a creative and fresh composition, not longer than 80 seconds.

It is opened not only for the french but to all people (all the prizes can be sent by post mail !!!)

Feel free to ask for any questions about this contest in this thread

Hope you enjoy this proposition...

More informations :

This contest is organised by a french university in which I am working as a sound teacher, the email adress you leave to participate will never be used for any commercial purpose (no spam).

You can download the raw sounds with a direct link here :

ftp://ftp2.mixagefou.com/mixagefou/sons_a_mixer.zip

Listen to them there is a very cool bass line !!!

you can even use those sounds in your personal compositions (copyright free).

Even more informations :

You can add your own effects to the raw sounds, there is no limitations on the creative aspect except it must be in 80 sec max and you can only work from the raw sounds. You can tweak it with your favorite tools (hardware / software)

For the crazy aspect it can be musical or like a movie atmosphere or something that is not even defined...

What is important is the originality of the creation

There will be around 15 prizes (maybe a little more) and logically around 15 winners...

There is no first and second and third prize but one prize from one founder each founder will give it's prize to the one he likes (winning criteria depends on the founder, for example Piste Rouge is a sound studio will give the Ipod Nano to a crazy with a good technical achievement...)
