PLASA launch competition for Stage to Studio best mix
PLASA has launched an audio mixing competition following ‘Stage to Studio’ at PLASA Show 2019 which saw emerging artist VC Pines perform live while being recorded by renowned engineer Jamie McEvoy (Noel Gallagher, Placebo, The Vaccines, Liam Payne of One Direction). It’s now the turn of professional engineers, mixing enthusiasts and everyone in between to compete for the best mix and a pro audio prize. The competition is now open and is accepting entries until Monday 13th January 2020.
Each entry will be judged by an expert team, with representatives from Headliner and Sound on Sound magazines, Genelec, Shure, Miloco Studios and PLASA, as well as VC Pines himself (aka Jack Mercer). The competition will award two winners for best original mix and best alternative mix. The pro audio prizes up for grabs have been contributed by world leaders Genelec and Shure.
VC Pines has generously provided the audio files from his Stage to Studio performance of his single ‘Indigo’. His unique blend of alternative soul, poetry and punk has garnered the support of BBC Radio’s Steve Lamacq, Lauren Laverne, Chris Hawkins, Huw Stephens, Tom Robinson, Cerys Matthews and Jack Saunders, with his single ‘Bones’ receiving airplay on BBC Radio 1. This year he took his career up a notch by performing on the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading and Leeds festivals and recording in the Maida Vale Studios for BBC Introducing London.
Entry is now open for the Stage to Studio competition and closes on Monday 13th January 2020.
