How did this slip by me? Herbie Hancock, jazz pioneer, has offered the chance to enter a contest based around remixing his music and submitting it back to him. This contest coincides with the Universal Music Germany's launch of Pangaea Island in Second Life. The winner will receive Ableton software's audio production application Live 7, valued at $599. Unfortunately, the deadline for this contest is the 15th of November, two days away from now! The site has all the details for submission.
Herbie Freakin' Hancock. Man, I've been a fan since the Headhunters album. I love the guy' style too, and I'm not ashamed to say I got a little thrill out of watching his video on the site where he says "I bet you're surprised to see me here, on Second Life. But, I'm a fan ... I've been here before."
