By holding a remix competition, the Deutsche Symphonie-Orchester Berlin invites you to take part in an extraordinary experiment! We have recorded exclusive loops just for you in a special recording session. Your challenge is not just to remix or rearrange them, but to make the classical sound material your own and develop it further in line with your own artistic ideas.
The Deutsche Symphonie-Orchester Berlin has been bringing together musicians and scene fans from the classical and clubbing worlds for more than five years with its ›Casual Concerts‹ and ›Casual Concert Lounge‹ series.
In collaboration with the Casual Concerts DJ in residence, Johann Fanger, the DSO is launching this unique competition. It not only brings the two musical worlds face to face, but is intended to lead them to a productive artistic exchange. Register on this page, get the loops on Soundcloud and let yourself be inspired!
We’re looking forward to your contributions by 31 January 2014! A distinguished jury will then select three prizewinners and the best tracks will be published on vinyl.
