No, it’s true, we’re not dead! Work continues on behind the scenes as always. We are still seeking a visual artist (see the Visual Artists post below) and also an additional sound designer to join the team!
For sound designer information, check out the bottom page of this link: Musician and Sound Designer Document and send any tryouts to the rapidcitymusic [at] gmail [dot] com address (see “RULES FOR AUDITIONS” #4)
Recording, re-recording, re-writing, mixing… it takes a while, but it’s all being done in pursuit of a better final product. Thanks for sticking with us on the ride so far! We will be posting more information soon. Who knows, maybe even some demos…?
Have a listen to some of the talent from our cast!
The amazingly talented Shelby Sessler (Rarity) and Austin Nebbia (Onyx) cover the song “Love Is an Open Door” from the new Disney movie, Frozen!
We are now seeking VISUAL ARTISTS interested in helping to bring the concept of My Little Musical to life. Visual Artists could range from designing album artwork to scene concepts to promotional material.
If interested, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with either a link to your artwork, or your artwork portfolio attached. Optionally, applicants may also attach a resumé of prior experience.
Update: Thank you for all of your applications so far! Callbacks for some positions are still going on privately. However, we are still accepting musician applicants for ACOUSTIC GUITAR and SAXOPHONE as well as applications for the SOUND DESIGN TEAM, which may include a number of people. Those selected for callbacks will be contacted. However, just because you have not been approached for a callback does not mean you will not be in the musical! See the musician/sound designer document for more info on auditions for all of these positions.
Musicians and SD applicants ONLY (this does not apply to vocalists as those auditions are being run separately!): If you have not received at least a confirmation email from us, make sure you’ve sent it to the correct address contained in the document. It’s possible we may have lost it in our email.
I'm just wondering what the time commitment as a musician is expected to be. For example, would it still be a realistic commitment for a semi-busy student? Also, just a tip, two octaves might be a tad too much to expect from a trumpet (at least comfortably). It's doable (again, probably not comfortably), but most music usually doesn't go either that high or that low (depending on where you start the scale).
Please direct all music related questions to email@example.com
EDIT now that RC can post on the tumblr: The commitment for a musician should certainly be realistic for a semi-busy student, especially seeing as there are a number of busy students on the production team! Also, we’ve actually had a number of players audition with the two octave scale, though we’re looking for a solid high range more than the low notes. You may audition with whatever you are comfortable with, but the guidelines in the audition document are tailored mostly to the strengths needed for the lead players in the production.
Auditions for the Voice Actors are now closed. A big thank you to everyone who auditioned! If you did audition, please keep an eye on your e-mail inboxes in the coming days.
Meanwhile, Musician and Sound Designer auditions have been extended! If you know anyone who you think would be a good fit for any of the positions listed in the audition document, please let them know!
More information on these deadlines will be provided in the near future. We’ll keep you posted!
