Shure Incorporated announced today that the student team from Middle Tennessee State University is the Tenth annual Fantastic Scholastic Recording Competition grand prize winner. The team’s winning original composition titled “In My Head” was co-written by Angel Snow and Darrell Scott.
The final compositions were evaluated based on overall fidelity, clarity, sonic balance, and creativity in selection and placement of microphones.
During the competition, ten student teams from the U.S. and Canada each produced and recorded an original composition using only the contents of a microphone locker provided by Shure. After working through the tracking and mixing phases of the project, each team submitted unmastered mixes of their track to the panel of industry experts for review.
As the grand prize winner, the Middle Tennessee State University team will take home a prize pack of Shure KSM, SM, and Beta microphones and SRH headphones valued collectively at more than $11,000.
