We speak audio. Audiodraft's work involves turning abstract attributes–relevant to our clients' brand identities–into music.
By participating in this Open Challenge you can get your music promoted directly to our clients. The winning tracks will be presented to our clients as the musical representation of their core values. If they love your track, they have the option to buy it instantly.
Your task is to turn the 2 attributes listed below into music. We've included explanations to give you an idea of what the attributes usually mean in terms of production. We encourage you to bring your own creativity to the game, too. For inspiration, a good starting point would be Young Fathers (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQFPikYSalg).
1. Masculine – What does it mean to be a man in today's society? Beyond cliches of masculinity, what is the sound of ♂
Low pitch, depth and strong beats.
2. Inspiring – fast moving elements and/or uplifting melody. Use of reverb and echo as a mixing technique.
VI-v6-i-v6 (never ending loop of "what does life have in store for us next?")
I-bVII (We're going on an adventure)
The length of your track should be between 1:00–2:30 minutes long and show dynamics and thematic development.
IMPORANT: Please add a note about your entry and describe which elements of your track support each of the 2 attributes, and why. Follow this format: [Masculine: your description...] [Inspiring: your description...]
Free hint: if the production quality is high enough for commercial radio, you're on the right track.
Looking forward to your entries! Have fun creating ;-)
