COLLEGIATE A CAPPELLA ARRANGERS

 

Ben Folds has just launched a contest. In his words: "I'm making an album of a cappella versions of my music to be performed by the best university groups we can find. This idea was motivated by a number of amazing university a cappella versions of my songs I came across on YouTube. Some of these brought to light unique nuances and perspective that is necessarily absent from the original recordings as the songwriter and singer happen to be the same guy. I was moved and inspired. Some of these versions were an improvement in my humble opinion and it would be a great opportunity to capture some of this." Ben Folds wants 12 or so tracks from collegiate groups, submitted via YouTube. And if you make the cut, he's going to send one of his producers to help you record a Ben Folds tune. WOW!

 Note: The deadline is November 14th.  More info: http://www.benfolds.com//acappella
