Sennheiser Searches for Musical Talent
Friday, 20 July 2001
Sennheiser, the company whose microphones give voice to so many of the world’s performing artists, is inaugurating a competition to search out some of the nation’s best hidden musical talent. The search for the country’s best unsigned bands and artists is being run in conjunction with Nexus Media’s Making Music title, the world famous Gibson guitar company, top British guitar amp manufacturer Orange, leading recording technology company TASCAM, and Mindprint studio effects.

Six musical categories are divided into pop, rock, dance, hip-hop, R&B and jazz. The winners of each heat pick up £500 in cash, plus a wealth of guitar, amplifier and recording equipment, not to mention Sennheiser evolution microphones and headphones. The overall winning artist or group, judged from among the winners of each of the individual categories, stands not only to receive £5000 in cash, almost £2000 of Sennheiser evolution microphones and headsets, a Tascam digital recording workstation, Orange guitar combo and a Gibson SG guitar, but also the chance to record with one of the world’s most respected producers, Mike Hedges, in his brand new Wessex Studios complex.

Entries must be in by 30th September and application forms and details are available in an extensive press advertising campaign or from the company’s website.
