讓我們了解您更多 Talk about yourself

首先,宣傳品上實用的背景資料以及優質的團體演奏音頻能有助團體成功爭取最佳的演出機會,因為比賽主辦和承辦方習慣以肉眼所見的宣傳材料判斷團體的整體質素。

各團體須就每場預計演出向我們提交至少兩套材料,每套需包括一條演奏音頻和一份整合好的團體資料。在準備資料的時候,可考慮以下建議(過往的這幾項做法都獲得不俗評價)。

The content and quality of the background materials and recordings that we send out on behalf of groups are very influential in securing the best possible performance opportunities. Presentation is important, as potential hosts and promoters tend to assume that the quality of promotional material reflects the quality of the group. pexels-photo-776119

Please let us have at least two sets of recordings and information packages for each concert you have asked us to arrange. In preparing the materials needed, please consider the following suggestions which have proved effective in the past.



請謹記,你要先成為你團體的代言人,才能為自己製造宣傳價值!

We can’t sell you unless you sell yourself first!

錄音
The Recording
20分鐘高音質音頻,需包括曲種相反的演奏。我們建議與你的團體計劃在正式演出上演奏的曲目相近,並以音樂轉換程式將音頻轉檔後,將網上檔案傳送給我們,你亦可以將檔案上傳至其他網上多媒體播放平台(如:Youtube或其他網站),再將網址傳送給我們。另外,我們也接受音頻CD和MP3檔案。
過往曾有表現一向出眾的團體因為音頻的音質太差而落選,所以在遞交材料時請確保錄音的音質良好。


We require a good quality recording of 20 minutes of contrasting repertoire, similar to the programme you will give on tour. We would prefer you to send us files online using a music transfer programme such as SoundCloud or via a link to online recordings (e.g. A website or YouTube). We can also accept recordings in Audio CD or MP3 format. There have been occasions when good groups have been refused due to the poor quality of their recordings.
正式演奏曲目

Repertoire
在準備以上材料的同時,請盡快挑選好並告知我們你的團體在正式表演時會演奏的曲目。詳細資料需包括:樂曲標題、長度、屬於有伴奏還是無伴奏演出、作曲家的全名、創作日期、以及作曲家簡介(大眾熟悉的作曲家除外)。考慮到演出權的問題,我們可能要求個別團體提供樂曲的出版社名稱。


We need to know your proposed repertoire as soon as possible. This is always the first information that potential hosts and promoters want. We need to know titles, duration, whether the pieces are accompanied or acappella, and the full names and dates of the composers, with brief biographies if they are not mainstream composers. For performing rights reasons, the names of the publishers may also be required.
