Cognitive Dissonance PR, in association with Cafe Music Studios and Supernormal Festival, are thrilled to present Symbiosis; a project dedicated to uncovering the most exciting things going on in new music in 2012.
We asked our favourite passionate proponents of new music to nominate their top up and coming bands, with the criteria that they must be unsigned and have never recorded in a professional studio. We will be showcasing these bands at a series of live events between March – June at the Urban Bar in Whitechapel. The top act from each night will play together at a final in July, with the overall winner being offered free mixing and mastering at Cafe Music Studios, free PR from CogDiss and a slot at Supernormal Festival in August.
The competition will be judged by CogDiss, Cafe Music and Supernormal alongside The Blue Walrus, Chaos Theory, A Negative Narrative, Sourmash, The Whiteboard Project, and Echoes & Dust, who have all nominated bands. Throughout the competition they will be posting music by and information about their choices, giving you a chance to discover their favourite up and coming artists.
