The lesson of the day is stepping out of your comfort zone and to keep on practicing. The key to the real progress of music (or anything for that matter) is pushing the limits of what already exists, putting your own spin on it, and taking it to the next level. Indaba member, David Pastorius, says “Indaba Music is an awesome place to hone your skills and work alongside of world-class artists.”
The next big contest is finally here. Surface #RemixProject presents the Linkin Park and Steve Aoki “A LIGHT THAT NEVER COMES” remix contest. This is the first of many contests that Microsoft and the Surface Remix Project will be sponsoring here at Indaba, so be on the look out for more awesome remix opportunities with the sickest prizing around.
Indaba Music has a very important announcement to make– we’re pregnant! Just kidding, websites can’t get pregnant. We are, however, adding to our musical family and we couldn’t be more excited.
Indaba has teamed up with the software and technology experts at Microsoft to partner with them on a new project we think you’re really going to like. When Microsoft recently announced the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2, there was one thing that no one saw coming – the announcement of an incredibly cool music creation application, the Surface Remix Project. You can get a free Surface 2 tablet and Music Kit if you are chosen to be a part of the #RemixProject. We have the best community anywhere, so sign up, get in and start remixing.
Singer-songwriter Nesta has quite the connection to Indaba Music. Last year, users had the chance to remix Nesta’s song “Stay.” “I was completely blown away with the response from the Indaba community, and extremely impressed with the talent and the scope of music that came back from that contest,” said Nesta. And while it was indeed difficult to pick a winner, one remix stood out to her above the rest.
