MOOG Theremin Halloween Contest

CONTEST NEWS: The deadline for posting your entry has been extended to 12:00 Noon EST, Tuesday, November 3, 2009. This gives you the opportunity to film on Halloween night.

In addition to its more serious side, the Theremin has a long history of use in horror/sci-fi movies. In celebration of this history, we’re awarding prizes to the videographers who do the best job of re-creating this experience.

Rules & Regulations:

Videos must be at least one minute in length. Theremin(s) used must be manufactured by Moog Music.

Participating is easy:

1. Create your best Theremin video with a Halloween Theme.

2. Upload it to your YouTube channel.

3. Post the YouTube URL for your video on the Moog Music Forum http://www.moogmusic.com/forum in the Theremin Forum, under the Halloween Theremin Contest topic by 12:00 Noon EST, Tuesday, November 3, 2009. If you are not already a Moog Music Forum member, you must register.

An online poll will be set up on the Forum On Monday, November 2 at 5:00 EST. Videos judged by Moog Music not to have significant Theremin or Halloween content will not be entered into the poll.

On Monday, November 30, at 12:00 pm EST, the video with the most votes in the poll will be the 1st prize winner. At that time, the judges will also check to see which video has the highest number of views on YouTube. The video with the highest number will be the 2nd prize winner. If a video wins the poll and has the highest number of views, the lucky winner will receive both prizes! Winners will be contacted through their YouTube account.

Moog reserves the right to unilaterally remove any video which it, at its sole discretion, deems to be unsuitable.

Prizes:

1st prize – Best Video – MF-104Z Analog Delay

2nd prize – Most views – MF-102 Ring Modulator

All contestants whose videos make it to the poll will receive a Moog t-shirt. Limit one t-shirt per video.

Guitar obsessed…. we found the answer

Check out the newest addition to the ever growing 3G phones available from T-Mobile. A ‘Fender’ matchbooked flame top phone.

From: engadget.com

Check this out. T-mobile has re-imagined the myTouch 3G. They’ve added something that was sorely needed: a 3.5mm headphone jack for a new version of the phone later this year. The other news is that the new myTouch is being released as a special edition thanks to a partnership with Fender.

This baby sports a super nice woodgrain finish, comes bundled with a 16GB microSD card
, and has some preloaded music content. Pretty nice huh?

We don’t have a release date or any price info yet however.t-mobile-mytouch-fender-back-ofc
