The New Age Notes Radio Station ID Challenge is an arranging and producing contest that provides creative musical professionals an opportunity to strut their stuff!
Here’s the challenge:
Create a new musical arrangement of the existing New Age Notes Radio (NANR) Station ID jingle.
YOUR ENTRY MUST BE RECEIVED BY MIDNIGHT EST, AUGUST 15, 2021
> Your new musical arrangement can include new orchestration, a re-harmonization of the basic chords of the accompaniment, and a new rhythmic accompaniment.
> Your new version of the New Age Notes Radio Station ID jingle must maintain the melody of our original Station ID jingle. That is, your new arrangement must incorporate the melodic intervals and melodic rhythm of our original jingle.
> You can create a full version or a “shotgun” version of the station ID. (A shotgun will use just the first three notes of the original melody.)
> Your new arrangement can be instrumental, vocal, or can combine vocal and instrumental elements.
> Your new version of the NANR Station ID can be any length, but must not be longer than one minute.
> All entries must be professionally recorded and produced and be “radio ready.”
Your entry must be received by midnight EST, August 15, 2021. Winners to be announced on or before Friday, September 10, 2021.
