A new landscape of possibilities for research and education in the humanities. [17dec10]
The Opéra de Lyon has launched an innovative music competition, entirely managed online and based on public domain content. "Mozart, C'est Vous!" includes 16 original compositions covering various genres (from jazz to folk to classics) played by French artists and bands. People can browse and watch each video online, and then enter their preference directly on the web, from April 5th through the 11th.
The votes of the online competition will be combined with the decision of the two-professional jury. The final winners will play in July under the Peristyle during the Opéra de Lyon summer concerts.
"Mozart, C'est Vous!" is a great example of the (musical) opportunities offered by publicly available material -- carried out in a professional and stimulating way for music lovers worldwide! [08apr11]
