DJ Shadow Ambient Sound Competition

Nokia has announced a “What does your city sound like?” competition, featuring DJ Shadow:

Now is your chance to collaborate with the inimitable DJ Shadow in his unique experiment for Nokia Trends Lab. This cutting edge music experiment offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to co-create a track with DJ Shadow using modern mobile technology.

Entitled “What does your city sound like?” DJ Shadow wants you to send him audio recordings of what you think are the most interesting and unique sounds of your city, from which he will create a totally original track.

DJ Shadow will choose the city which he feels has submitted the most interesting sounds in order to
create an exclusive mix for that city.

By uploading sounds you may also enter a Free Prize Draw to win one of five Nokia 5310 phones
outfitted with special recording kits.
