just got this note from Raf Fiol over at Kompoz.com:
Glen Phillips / Kompoz Remix Contest!
Tune your guitar. Adjust your drum kit. Fire up your mixer. Today we are thrilled to announce our second Kompoz celebrity remix contest, this one featuring Glen Phillips, singer, songwriter, and the voice of Toad The Wet Sprocket!
From April 1st through May 30th, Kompoz members can download the original studio tracks for the song “The Spirit of Shackleton” from Glen’s new solo album titled “Secrets of the New Explorers”. Rock it up, funk it up, jazz it up. Add a solo, sing with Glen, bang your drums. Post your entry before May 30th for your chance to win a Fender Squire Stratocaster autographed by Glen Phillips!
Five winners will be selected. The best new individual track or original remix will win a Fender Squire Stratocaster autographed by Glen Phillips. The second-place winner will receive a one-year premium membership to TrueFire.com. The third-place winner will receive a StealthPlug USB audio interface from IK Multimedia. The top five winners will all receive a “Secrets of the New Explorers” CD autographed by Glen Phillips, and a cool t-shirt from INDISTR.COM.
Finalists will be selected during the last week of May by Glen Phillips and Kompoz staff members. Those tracks will then be posted on a special Kompoz channel on OurStage.com, where during the month of June, the fans will decide the winners, using OurStage’s unique “battle of the bands” voting format. Kompoz members that register on OurStage will of course be able to vote, and will receive 12 free MP3s!

This one looks interesting – I’ll have to check it out some more: Kompoz.com: “Kompoz is a social workspace for musicians. Use it to compose new music with other artists around the world. Got an idea for a song? Record a track. Upload it. Then invite others to add drums, bass, vocals or anything else!”
