COMMUNITY MUSIC VIDEO PROJECT
ATTENTION LOCAL MUSICIANS:
We're putting together a music video, and we want to bring all genres, ages, and experience levels together on this one project.
Are you in? Great!
We're looking for vocalists and instrumentalists to record their portions of this song on video and send us the video file.
Our sound technician, Joel Rohs, will use all your audio tracks to mix the song, and we'll incorporate your video, too!
So, what song to use? We wanted it to be a Canadian band, and we wanted a band that had been at the EARC recently. Plus, we wanted a pretty kickin' tune as well. Which reminded us of one of the BEST concerts here in recent memory: The Trews, who were here February 7th, 2019. They brought along two amazing opening acts (Altameda & W3apons) to produce four hours of live Canadian rock.
While flipping through all the hits that The Trews have had, one title really stuck out as relevant to our world right now.
Tired of Waiting (Remastered) from Time Capsule ℗ 2016 Nettwerk Productions Ltd.

Writer: John-Angus Callaghan MacDonald Writer: Sean Patrick Dalton Composer: The Trews
We're all getting tired of waiting for everything to go back to normal. But in the meantime, let's get get together virtually and create some music.
HOW IT WORKS:
Sound Guy Joel is a pretty nice guy, so he's created a click track for you all to follow along with. It will be emailed to you once you've registered. So take a listen, and then get rolling!
SUBMISSION WINDOW: SEPTEMBER 1st to OCTOBER 13th
VIDEO PREMIERE: TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 10TH AT 7pm
TIPS FOR VIDEOS:
If you have access to a microphone that will work with your cameraphone (or video recorder), please use it. If not, make sure you're in a quiet space with no ambient (background) noise. It'll help us isolate your voice or instrument.
Make sure your video only contains your performance, no backing track.
Feel free to send us two takes, and change the angle of your shot. We only need one audio track but for the video more angles will add some interest.
Pay attention to your background! A blank wall is just fine indoors. But watch for anything in back there that you might not want to explain later, like dirty underwear. Further to that, if you have access to a really interesting location, record your video there!
Remember to perform! Yes the audio is very important, but we will also see you in the video. Give us good face, smile, flash some attitude, and have fun with it!
