Microsoft Xbox are offering the chance for computer games lovers to record the soundtrack for forthcoming games trailers, as part of a nationwide competition to find the UKâ€™s best new music talent.
Launched by Enter Shikari â€“ who have recorded their own trailer soundtrack for the games company â€“ â€˜Soundtracksâ€™ offers the winner the chance to spend time in a state-of-the-art record studio, where they will put together a professional demo.
To enter the competition bands can download games trailers from the Xbox music website that they can then produce their own soundtrack to.
Speaking about his bands song for the computer game Blue Dragon, Enter Shikariâ€™s lead singer Roughton Reynolds, said: â€œIâ€™m excited by the results â€“ the visuals work so well with the music and fit our sound really well. Hopefully, other musicians out there will feel inspired by games too and want to get involved.â€
