Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer and UJAM, the free music creation service online, have kicked off an international hunt for a voice to star in the theme song for Ubisoft's long awaited new game.
Between September 8th and 19th, anyone who can sing is invited to submit their entries on UJAM and compete to become part of the new Assassin's Creed's theme song and win a $1000 cash prize.
Zimmer's Remote Control Productions tell us that they are looking for a voice to personify the epic drama and tension of this gaming adventure, matching the hauntingly stirring theme score composed by Lorne Balfe. The contest is open to all people from the US, Canada, UK and Germany,18 years and older – talent is key, not experience. The producers have opened the casting to the public in the belief that emotion and passion are more powerful than professional vocal skills. Thanks to UJAM's unique technology, participants don't need a studio or a producer – a laptop is fine. Contestants simply sign up on UJAM,listen to the theme song, record a vocal performance on top of the playback, submit it to the contest and get fans to vote the song into the Top 20.
UJAM's social music platform gives the power to the people: The Top 20 entries will be shortlisted by the international voting public, and tracks will be dynamically ranked on UJAM's leader board for daily updates on who's in the lead. When the contest closes on September 19th, a finalist will be chosen from the Top 20 by a Jury, lead by Hans Zimmer. The winner will receive the $1000 cash prize and be invited to record the track in a professional studio with full credits on the Revelations game and soundtrack, which will be available worldwide on November 15, 2011.
The jury includes:
Hans Zimmer, Remote Control Productions
Lorne Balfe, Revelations theme composer, Remote Control Productions
Simon Landry, Assassin's Creed® Music Supervisor, Ubisoft
