You! Remix a classic Louder Than a Bomb poem for a chance to win.


Founded in 2001, Chicago’s Louder Than a Bomb annual youth poetry slam engages schools and community organizations from throughout the Chicago region. Each year since 2005, WBEZ has invited competition Finalists into our studios to record their work, and this year we want to challenge you to remix one of 20 poems selected for this challenge. Add a beat, add ambiance, or add other sounds to tell the story.


Submit your remix by NOON on Tuesday, March 5 for a chance to win. Limit 3 remixes per person.


To upload your remix simply use vocalo’s DropBox on SoundCloud: http://soundcloud.com/vocalo/dropbox.

Who will win?

Team Vocalo will select THREE WINNERS. All three will be invited live onto Vocalo’s Music Vox on Thursday, March 7 from 7-8pm to broadcast your remix and talk about your work. Winners will also receive a pair of Sony Professional MDR-7506 Dynamic Stereo headphones and a pair of tickets to the Louder Than a Bomb Team Finals on Saturday, March 9, taking place this year at Cadillac Palace.
