For the 4th time we will be hosting our Beyond Music Project and we are looking forward to your participation. If you are not yet a member of our community, apply here.
After creating the last three Beyond Music albums under the direction of world-famous producers, such as Vol.1 with four-time Grammy Award winner Larry Klein, Vol.2 with legendary drummer and composer Manu Katché and Vol.3 with five-time Grammy Award winners Michael League & Bill Laurance, we are happy to announce some changes and surprises for Vol.4.
The musical focus of our next album is "Social Change". You bring the song, we bring the star. This time, the winners can look forward to collaborations with world-famous and award-winning guest artists. They are "African Legend" and 5-time Grammy Award winner Angélique Kidjo, Afrobeats star Pheelz and Ghanaian pop sensation Wiyaala.
The Top3 winners will each be awarded a collaboration with a star, a globally acclaimed guest artist. They are "African Legend" and 5-time Grammy Award winner Angélique Kidjo, Nigerian Afrobeats star Pheelz and Ghanaian pop sensation Wiyaala.
The artist teams that created the selected songs will be invited to a professional recording session with the guest artist in a studio of their choice to professionally re-produce the song in collaboration with this artist. We will take care of all travel, accommodation, food, transport and the opportunity to perform in a music video with the guest artist. The three singles will be accompanied by a significant marketing budget, so you can be sure that the world will hear your song. We will also enter the three songs in the new Grammy category "Best Song for Social Change".
Another 17 submissions will be selected and awarded with a total of up to 85,000 US dollars. In detail: 17 songs will each be honored with an award. The prize money per award is a maximum of 5,000 US dollars. Each member of a winning team will receive 1,000 US dollars for the participation, up to a group size of five members. Collaborations of more than five artists must share the prize money of 5,000 US dollars equally. The songs will be mastered and released with the Top3 winning songs on the Beyond Music album Vol.4.
With a substantial marketing budget, both the album and singles will enjoy global promotion. We want your songs to go around the world and make sure your messages get heard.
All 20 artist teams will benefit from the exploitation of the tracks.
