Musicians throughout the world can enter the contest for free by simply creating a profile at mi7.com, uploading some songs, and letting the other members vote on them. The artist judged most deserving of the chance to record at Real World will be flown to London, chauffeur driven to the beautiful English countryside of Wiltshire, and given three days to record their music in the Big Room of Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios with a world-class producer - all expenses paid!
“At MI7 we've always believed in giving musicians the best tools they need to make their music”, said Per Larsen, CEO of MI7 “We're now taking it to the next level and giving them free access to one of the most legendary recording studios in the world. We're proud to be able to offer this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a great new band to live their dream!”
Real World Studios was founded by Peter Gabriel and is one of the finest studios in the world. The Big Room is why Real World is justifiably famous. It offers space and versatility on a grand scale for live recording and tracking. Equipped with a 72 channel SSL 9000 XL K series console together with a varied array of outboard equipment (including a large selection of vintage Neve modules), it offers the potential for truly state of the art recording and mixing.
The Real World Studios contest is now accepting songs and will run through October 31, 2007. Official contest rules and details can be found at community.mi7.com/contests
