Sampling Mozart for the next generation: Mozart [un]RAPPED

Thursday 30th June 2011

Kings Place have just launched a fresh new freestyle and vocal contest open to everybody, with the aim of celebrating musical fusion and creative experimentation.

Leading on from Kings Place’s Mozart Unwrapped series, Mozart [un]RAPPED has taken samples from a live Mozart performance from the Aurora Orchestra and invited skillful producers to take on the challenge of remixing Mozart themselves, to create tracks that entrants re-work and add to in order to leave their mark on Mozart.

Participants can freestyle, rap, sing on the tracks using the RJDJ online widget and the RJDJ iPhone/iTouch App – both especially designed for the competition. Artists such as reggae pioneers Black Slate and award-winning Hip Hop duo Herma Puma will participate in the tracks, and will be judging the competition entries at the finale on 24th July at Kings Place.

Submissions deadline: 20th July 2011
Finale event: 24th July 2011
