About UNMASKED BEATS
This year's songwriting competition takes its themes from the 2021 A SPIRE production The Masked DJ. Young composers and songwriters can use one or both of this year's two inspirational concepts to write their original song:
After 2020 we are all way too familiar with face masks, but what other kinds of masks could you use as inspiration? As well as physical masks you wear there are also the metaphorical masks we all wear at times to pretend to be something we are not or to fit in. The idea that everyone wears a mask of some kind is a strong theme in The Masked DJ.
Use the genre of dance music to inspire your tune. We encourage entries from writers who use technology to create their music.
