Mi Sound was developed by DMS Systems Music industry Training and COSAMP in conjunction with the Royal South Street Society in 2016 as a platform for students undertaking the VET in VCE Music Performance Exam. Unlike most other eisteddfods, performers at Showbiz Cinemas Mi Sound are able to present their full program and Showbiz Cinemas Mi Sound allocates a 20 minute timeframe for each performance (not just 1 or 2 pieces).
With support from our sponsors (Showcase Cinemas, and The Hop temple) Showbiz Cinemas Mi Sound aims to provide an opportunity for industry representatives to be present during a number of sessions. It is envisaged that performances that demonstrate a high level of industry awareness and have a show ready to perform in a public or corporate environment may have an opportunity to perform within a relevant follow-up industry event.
Showbiz Cinemas Mi Sound 2019 is being held Wednesday September 11 – Friday September 13 at the Hop Temple, in Armstrong St, Ballarat. This timeslot gives students the opportunity to fine-tune their VET Music exam performance in a real industry setting. There are 2 sessions each day:
10.30am – 3pm
4.30pm – 8.30pm
The performances and reviews are videoed by Rex Hardware & provided to all performers as a YouTube link in the week following Showbiz Cinemas Mi Sound.
