Morley Festival Poetry Competition - Entries Now Open!
The Planets Poetry Competition is organised by the Student Council through Morley…
‘SAMPLING HOLST’ is a sampling competition which encourages the creation of new electronic works from all genres and disciplines of electronic music – dubstep to grime, experimental electronic music to techno.
Ten to twelve finalists will be selected and will receive a combination of prizes such as Solid State Logic plug-ins (worth £1,000) to audio hardware and others kindly donated by our partners. In addition to this, the finalists’ tracks will be released as the first album compilation from TERM Records, Morley’s new label to launched this autumn.
The competition finalists, selected by The Engine Room’s panel of judges which includes composer and producer Gabriel Prokofiev and BBC Radio 3 presenter Max Reinhardt, will be announced at a party event at Iklectik on 30 June 2018.
To participate in the competition, you must create a work of no longer than five minutes, making use of a minimum of seven samples from the selection available on the Engine Room website.
Morley is very grateful to the London Schools Symphony Orchestra for providing the recording from which we have selected the source material.
Successful works will be announced at an event on June 30, 2018 and a list will be published on this website.
