UK production company NyAC is launching an online competition – Soundtraxs - to create a feature film soundtrack for Michael Baig Clifford’s upcoming feature film Relative Desire.
Musicians across all genres are being invited to upload their music onto www.muzu.tv/soundtraxs, where members of the public will vote for their favourite tracks.
A panel of music and film industry experts will judge the shortlist and the winning ten tracks will feature on the movie soundtrack for Relative Desire, which is due to start shooting in October.
The film, about a teenager who sets out to find her missing mother, stars rising British actors Imogen Poots and Harry Treadaway. Joanna Lee has written the script. Director Michael Baig Clifford won a BAFTA award for his short film Brown Paper Bag in 2003.
The chosen bands will receive ongoing royalty payments, and all music will be licensed on a non-exclusive basis.
“Our mission is to bring new original talent to audiences in as many cross-platform partnerships and collaborations as we can. Soundtraxs is a first. It gives new artists a chance to have their music in a feature film by an award winning director,” said NyAC founder Phil Parker.
