[CLOSED] Pocahontas "Savages" Parody (Chorus Leader) Deadline: April 8
#1
Music 
CLOSED!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Auditions may be submitted by email at rebekahamberclark@gmail.com  

WARNING: THIS SONG PARODY WILL BE STRONGLY POLITICAL IN NATURE. THE ALTERED LYRICS WILL INCLUDE TERMS LIKE "SNOWFLAKE" AND "NAZI." THE SONG WILL, HOWEVER, BE AS SFW AS ITS NATURE ALLOWS. (YOU WILL BE GIVEN A CHANCE TO REVIEW THE LYRICS IN FULL BEFORE NEEDING TO ACCEPT OR DECLINE BEING A PART OF THIS PROJECT.)

If you have ANY questions or concerns about this project, please don't hesitate to ask me! [Image: smiley.png]

Although I use the word "parody", this song is NOT intended as humor!

I am looking for a singer who is at least moderately competent to help me organize the lines of harmonies for the chorus in a political parody of the song "Savages" from Pocahontas. To be clear, this song is NOT meant to promote either the right or left wing over the other. Your role as chorus leader will be to record a "template" for each section of singers to listen to and try their best to match the timing and notes when they record, so that once the whole song is mixed, it's a chorus and not a disaster. [Image: wink.png] This position comes with considerable freedom on your part, because I have very, very limited musical knowledge -- otherwise I would be doing this part myself!

This project WILL be completed and posted. I have already posted 4 other duet & group song covers on my YouTube channel. I follow through on these song projects, so please don't worry about it vaporizing midway through!

Auditions for the other roles will be opened *after* the chorus leader has recorded all templates, so that no one needs to wait to begin recording.

RULES:
1. The deadline for submitting auditions is March 28th, 2018 by midnight Central Standard Time. I will NOT cast this role before the deadline. I will make a casting decision OR extend the deadline no sooner than March 29th and no later than April 4th. Auditions submitted after the deadline will ONLY be considered if I choose to extend the deadline beyond the date they were submitted.

2. The person chosen will have 1 week to review the lyrics and give me their final answer on accepting or declining the role. After 1 week, if I haven't heard anything I will move to my second choice.

3. Once accepting the role, the Chorus Leader will have 4 weeks to return the recorded templates to me, UNLESS an extension is worked out with me BEFORE the deadline on turning in the recordings. I'm willing to be flexible within reason, but don't want to have this project end up in the swirling vortex of abandoned projects! [Image: wink.png]



AUDITION LINES

EITHER:
Send me your singing demo reel and/or links to any of your previous singing projects where I can hear you sing!

OR record and send to me these audition lines:
"Savages! Savages!
What are we waiting for
Destroy their evil race until there's not a trace left
(RATCLIFFE: We will sound the drums of war)
(POCAHONTAS: How loud are the drums of war?)
Now we sound the drums of war
Now we see what comes of trying to be chums
Now we sound the drums of...
(POCAHONTAS: Is the death of all I love carried in the drumming of...)
War!"


*NOTE: DO NOT sing the parts for RATCLIFFE or POCAHONTAS -- those are only included for reference.

Please sing ONLY the lyrics not in (parenthesis). If you will be doing more than one line of harmony for the chorus to follow, please sing the lyrics once through for EACH line of harmony you will be doing. (It is completely fine to just do one, though!) These can be end-to-end (in order from highest to lowest registers, please!) OR you can mix them yourself. For any auditions submitted end-to-end, I will mix the files myself to judge the auditions, so please make sure the timing will match from one line of harmony to another, as everyone will be following YOUR timing, and everyone needs to be able to sound like they're singing at the same time.

If you would like to use music in your audition, this is the music I will be using in the song cover:
(I will be cutting out most of the instrumental in the middle)

Deadline extended to Sunday, April 8th, 2018!

I still need a singer to help with making the harmony reference(s) for the chorus. If you don't have the chance to record an audition, a singing demo reel and/or links to any previous singing projects of yours are also accepted!

(The deadline will NOT be extended again. If there is still no interest in this role, I will figure out an alternate option for the chorus singers.)
