Midpoint Music Festival: News
First off, band registration has closed for Cincinnati's Midpoint Music Festival. So if you've just now learned about it, you're too late. Try again next year. Bands that did register will be notified of their status beginning mid-June through mid-July.
I've been waiting to hear some news about the festival for some time now and just happened to see an update. Looks like some new events are planned for 2007.
From the MPMF web-site:
Out with the tradeshow and in with the MPMF Recording Studio. Conference bands will get the chance to sign up and record a song for FREE at the conference. But unlike most recording studios, conference attendees can watch and listen to the band LIVE. Bands get to keep the tracks so they can mix and master after the Fest. A lucky few selected by MPMF judges will record a song at Sound Images. Dubbed Radio MidPoint, not only will bands get to keep their tracks, but the performances will be streamed from the MPMF Web site.
The MPMF Recording Studio is made possible by Sonicbids.com. Launched in 2002, Sonicbids is an online service that makes it easy for musicians to connect with people who book and license music worldwide. By offering access to thousands of performance and licensing opportunities, the innovative Sonicbids Electronic Press Kit (EPK™), and a community of 100,000 musicians and nearly 10,000 promoters, Sonicbids brings simplicity to an ever-changing musical world.
As the largest production studio in the area, Sound images offers total audio production – from voice overs and sound design; to original music, post scores and jingles.
