Dubreq Ltd. announced Stylophone’s Big 5-0 Golden Ticket Competition! Stylophone is turning 50, and in celebration, the team at Dubreq has created a global competition to compose Stylophone’s 50th Anniversary song. It will be judged by legendary Tony Visconti, who produced “Space Oddity” for one of the Stylophone’s most famous users, David Bowie.
Budding musicians and producers have the chance to win a one-of-a-kind gold-plated Stylophone, a full set of Stylophone products (Stylophone, Beatbox, Gen X-1 and S2) and have their winning song and their name promoted across Stylophone’s social media platforms.
The Big 5-0 Competition will run from June 11 and will close on July 31.
- Musicians ages 16 and over should compose and produce an original piece of music up to two minutes long featuring at least one Stylophone instrument (the original Stylophone, the Gen X-1 or the Stylophone Beatbox/Stylophone 2). Other instruments can be used, but the Stylophone must be the main instrument in the composition.
- Entrants can then visit the competition post pinned to the top of the Stylophone Facebook page, and add a comment that includes a link to either their YouTube video or a SoundCloud audio with the hashtag #stylophone50.
Tony Visconti and the Dubreq team will judge the submissions, and the winning entry will be announced in September.
John Simpson from Stylophone says: “Since its appearance on ‘Space Oddity’ in ’68, the Stylophone has held a fascination for musicians and producers drawn to its unique sound. We are honoured that Tony Visconti has agreed to judge the entries; this competition will offer the chance to get an artist’s music heard by one of the music industry’s great legends.”
