High school students and grads can benefit from Nimbus School of Recording Arts MIX Contest

If you aspire to a career in the modern music industry, the 2015 Nimbus Mix Contest is for you!

The Nimbus School of Recording Arts MIX Contest – an exciting competition for anyone who wants to learn more about the recording arts – also offers a huge scholarship in a $25,000 top prize each for a student and an adult learner.

“This contest is a real opportunity for a new generation of engineers and producers,” said legendary producer, and Nimbus co-founder, Bob Ezrin.  “This is a chance for talented students to work on tracks from artists they hear on the radio, and to see what it takes to create a mix that stands up to industry standards.”

There’s also a $10,000 scholarship for second place, $5000 for third, and a $10,000 “voters choice” award as well. All contestants have to do is download the stem files from the Nimbus site (available April 1) and upload their finished mixes by May 1 for public vote and Nimbus review (Nimbus judges Ezrin and Garth Richardson, and Shawn Marino VP Universal Music Publishing). The entrepreneurial producers who started Nimbus, Ezrin (Lou Reed, Alice Cooper, Kiss, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel and Phish) and Richardson (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mötley Crüe, Rage Against the Machine, The Melvins), are some of the most accomplished Canadians in the music business and the school is renowned for its top notch education and constant giving back to the community.

Winners will be announced June 1.
