Kitaristiksi Wintersuniin – hakuohjeet sekä vaatimukset julki.



Eilen Wintersun julkaisi tiedotteen yhtyeen tulevaisuuden suunnitelmista Facebook – sivuillansa. Kun Mäenpää ilmoitti jättävänsä livekitaristin työt, niin yhden kitaristin paikka on nyt auki. Yhtye etsii taitavaa soittajaa joka hallitsee myös soolokitaristin tehtävät. Hakijan olisi hyvä olla suomalainen ja yli 21-vuotias. Asuinpaikkana Helsinki tai lähialueet, mutta poissuljettua ei ole lähinaapurimaat. Lisäksi tulevan kitaristin tulisi olla tietenkin muutenkin ominaisuuksiltaan sopiva Wintersuniin.


Voit lukea yhtyeen tiedotteen hakuprosessista alta:


We are looking for a 2nd guitarist for the band. From now on Jari will concentrate solely on the vocals live (please see our previous update with all the details) and Teemu will be handling most of the guitar parts previously played by Jari (solos etc.). We are looking for a tight guitarist who can also handle challenging lead guitar parts.
We’re mainly looking for a Finnish player over the age of 21 and the closer you are located to Helsinki the better, but we are not ruling out the nearby countries. Besides having professional-level playing and performance skills, we’re looking for a cool and relaxed guy to add to the Wintersun family.
Send us a video of your best, tightest and most in-tune playing of these parts:
– Sons Of Winter And Stars “Behold The Rain Of Stars” riff (1:19-1:39)
– Sons Of Winter And Stars ”Killer Riff” (4:30-4:58)
– Battle Against Time intro riff (0:00-0:19)
– Battle Against Time verse riff (2:06-2:32)
– Starchild “Meshuggah” riff (1:08-1:18)
– Death And The Healing sweep section (your interpretation with just one guitar) (5:10-5:31)
– Additional sample of your best rhythm/solo playing (anything you want), maximum length 1 min
Record ONE GUITAR TRACK ONLY with NO BACKING TRACKS. Metronome is recommended (and can be heard in the video).
If you can, record the guitar with DIRECT IN or MIKED sound with no effects (bit of effects is ok for solos). Direct In or miked sound is a big plus as guitar sound recorded with a camera mic is very forgiving and we won’t be a able evaluate your playing properly.
Also, tell us a little about yourself: where you live, what’s your musical background, what you usually do daily etc. Do you have any other skills that could benefit the band?
Upload the video to youtube/vimeo/dropbox (or other similar service) and send us a private (or public) LINK to the video. Please no video files attached to the email!
Send your application to:
The deadline for applications is the 1st of December 2016.
We’re looking forward to seeing your amazing guitar videos! Have fun!
– Jari, Jukka, Kai, Teemu
