-Project Synopsis:

“My Music My Dream – A young musician’s life IS a reality show” (M3D) will be a musical competition reality television series that is best described as “The Voice” and “American Idol” meet “Big Brother” and “Survivor” with several dramatic and musical twists.

Twist # 1: Differing from “Idol”/etc., M3D has young professional musicians and musician-vocalists as contestants, instead of inexperienced amateurs and wannabe’s, with some used solely as comic foils;

Twist # 2: M3D’s contestants will come from all over the globe and the only initial common language they will share is music itself;

Twist # 3: Our contestants will create totally new songs under direction of several celebrity mentors instead of re-hashing (in some cases) decades-old songs;

Twist # 4: We will create heavy and sustained fan/follower involvement by intense social media marketing from the outset (well before production begins) to choose artist candidates from their online audition videos all the way to choosing the members of the final group created by M3D;

Twist # 5: “Idol” and the others (with new shows of the same kind on the way) focus on creating “good TV”, and scant attention is given what happens to their contestants after the season finale. Despite several high Neilsen-rated reality talent shows over recent years, the amount of singers that have achieved some level of success as a “real” music act can be counted on one hand. This is primarily due to current reality talent shows’ prime demographic appearing to be grandparents and younger children…who do not attend non-pop concerts or nightclubs on any appreciable basis. Therefore these “singers” don’t need, and don’t have, the vocal stamina to sing 20-30 songs consecutively in a truly live performance. M3D relies on excellent musicianship, high production values and compelling original songs for its success.

Current reality TV talent shows’ only concern is making ‘Good TV” solely for that particular season.

“My Music My Dream” turns that concept around and features young, trained professional musicians that already have a high level of musical accomplishment. AND the band created from our show will have The Chance Of A Lifetime to proceed to a successful career as a stand-alone super-group and as a complete backup band for other major artists.

Young professional musicians already struggle mightily with issues of self-determination, self-doubt, commitment and competition. In order to work and perfect their art/craft, young musicians have to be in bands. Bands are very similar to marriages in that deepest fears, strengths and personality traits are revealed as the musicians struggle to compose, arrange and perform newly written music.

 

Imagine the real drama and intense viewer interest created when television cameras are added to the “mix” of musical disputes, language barriers and personal conflicts captured for international screening!

   

Using Social Media Marketing, “M3D” will seek to find the very best young professional musicians from all over the world and invite them to video audition for a place in a new band that will have the potential to become the newest of music super-groups. The invitee musicians will compete with each other to learn under the tutelage of celebrity mentors. The final band members are chosen by a combination of online fan voting and celebrity mentor choices. Fans will be deeply involved in the band from the very beginning of our talent procurement process.

Music super-groups, where all the members are top-flight musicians, have proven to be very popular (“crossover artists”) since Santana since the 1960s. Journey was a group of excellent musicians that still enjoy a level of success decades after their last album. The Dave Matthews Band is another, more recent example of excellent musicianship receiving great popular acceptance and considerable revenue streams. Other current music-oriented super groups include Sting’s many backup bands, Herbie Hancock, Robert Glasper Experience, Kamasi Washington, Snarky Puppy, Daft Punk and The Roots. High fan demand remains for reunion tours of The Mahavishnu Orchestra, Return To Forever and UZEB, which are all instrumental acts. The international public still loves high-level good music that is well performed.

As in professional sports, widespread public interest in generated when compelling new young talent, with the potential to “go all the way”, is introduced into the cultural mainstream. Our unique take on musical competition reality shows almost guarantees its major success.

“My Music My Dream” seeks an investment total of $99,273.00 to complete the development portion of this television project under SEC and State of California compliance. Equity Partners will receive 10% (ten percent) return on their investment plus future profit participation in anticipated revenue streams.
