This is a contest for artists to mix audio tracks under 4 minutes which use provided voice samples from Ben Franzen and Kembrew McLeod’s forthcoming film, “Copyright Criminals.” Samples from the film include voiceovers from De La Soul, DJ Qbert, members of Public Enemy, Matmos, Coldcut, members of Negativland, and others. The best overall winner will be included prominently in the film and the top 11 other entries are to be included on a companion CD.
The deadline has been extended to March 14, and new samples from George Clinton (Parliament-Funkadelic) and Chuck D (Public Enemy) are added to the list of possible source material that you may use.
(Incidentally, another thing that Kembrew and I have in common is that we have both interviewed Chuck D… him for several hours and me for 15 minutes. I interviewed Chuck D for my perpetually in production documentary, which will soon have a new home here.)
