"Steps Ahead" Listening Session

To hear your own song on the radio, on a label or in advertising: At the "Steps Ahead" Listening Session held as part of NEW TALENT on Saturday, April 25, 2020, "new talents" can come a couple of steps closer to this goal. Young musicians have the chance to present their music to decision makers from the industry and the media, who will give direct feedback and perhaps also add the track to their programs.

If you want to be a part of it, you can apply: Simply send a song as an MP3 file with accompanying information (band name or artist name, song title, social media details, brief description of the project – max. 500 characters, contact details) to schulz@vut.de by March 15, 2020.

The members of the jury are Olaf Opal (Producer and Mixer), Donata Kramarz (NOSOYO), Tilmann Köllner (WDR 1LIVE), Sara-Lena Probst (BlackbirdPunk) und Thorsten Mathieu (Deutschlandfunk Nova). Tim Thaler will moderate the session.

The format "Steps Ahead" was developed by Tim Thaler and Robert Lingnau at the SRH Hochschule der populären Künste (Berlin) and is a cooperation with them.
