FSC 115 September: Bochum, Germany

Feel Your Heart Beat



Hello and Welcome to the 115th edition of the Forum Song Contest set in beautiful Bochum, Germany during the month of September.

We gather here in Bochum due to the thrilling victory of Alvaro Soler and his song La Cintura.



Our Host City for this edition is Bochum, situated in the heart of the German Ruhr.

The origins of Bochum date back to the 9th century when Charlemagne set up a royal court at the junction of two important trade routes. Bochum remained a small town until the 19th century when the steel and coal industries exploded causing a population increase from 4,500 in 1850 to 100,000 in 1904. The steel and coal industries lead to an economic boom and population boom. During World War Two, Bochum was an allied target due its manufacturing importance with close to 83% of the Bochum area being hit by bombs.

Bochum is the largest city and cultural heart of the Ruhr region. It is home to the Schauspielhaus Bochum and the Starlight Express which is the longest running musical in Germany having opened in 1988. Bochum is also home to many prestigious art galleries and museums like the Ruhr University Art Collection which houses both modern and classical sculptures and vases. Bochum is also home to the Bergbaumuseum, a museum devoted to mining technology which comes with a complete pithead tower. Bochum is also home to many public art spaces. The Terminal sculpture by Richard Sierra consists of four steel-plates with a height of 12 m. In spite of their weight the visitor becomes a vision of lightness in a different way on every side. Bochum is also home to the Josiade-fountain at Husemann-Square. It displays a scene from Hieronymus Jobs, and the main character of the "Jobsiade", a comical poem of the poet Carl Armold Kortum.

Bochum plays host to many events like the Bochum Total, a festival devoted entirely to rock music. It is also the home of the Bochumer Bachtage a festival which dedicates itself to celebrating the life and music of the composer Johann Sebastian Bach. The oldest festival in Bochum, however, is the Maiabendfest, a local festival whose origins date back hundreds of years. Around Christmas, a medieval market is set up around the Paulus Church and people play historical instruments. This month, Bochum is also the proud host city of FSC 115!

The venue for this month is the The Jahrhunderthalle Bochum A former industrial plant, the Jahrhundethalle Bochum has been transformed into one of Europe’s premiere festival locations. With a truly multi purpose the Jarhrhundertalle Bochum has hosted a wide variety of events. From political rallies to galas and trade fares to a plethora of concerts, the Jahrhundethalle Bochum is one of Germany’s most prominent theatres. In 2009 it also played host to the prestigious European Film Awards, which were viewed in over 44 countries. Tonight the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum will host the 115th edition of the Forum Song Contest.

Copy of post 02.09.2018, 00:30 CET ‘Re: FSC September 115: Submit Your Entry! [FSC Show: TBC]’

IMPORTANT:

Greece - Eleni Foureira - Caramela


This entry by Greece in FSC #115 September has been contested and is under review by the FSC Mod team now in the Evaluation Period with regards to FSC Rules regarding eligibility. The case will be looked into and a final decision will be made as to whether the entry will be allowed. The Back Up-entry will also be checked for eligibility in case it is necessary. An official announcement will be made once a final decision is made in this case.


On behalf of the FSC Mod team,


Regards,

FSC Head Mod


IMPORTANT: Final FSC Mod team Decision: :gr: Greece - Eleni Foureira - Caramela

This entry by Greece in FSC #115 September has been under review now in the Evaluation Period with regards to eligibility. The FSC Mod team has discussed this case and looked at facts/info at hand and have reached a final decision.

The Greek song is, unfortunately, a cover of an earlier song
Israel entry FSC #107 Moshe Perez - Karamela

and is therefore not eligible for participation in FSC September, ref. FSC Rules, Entries, Songs, pt 10 a1. Covers.

Conclusion: the Greek entry for FSC #115 has been disqualified and will be replaced by the Greek Back-up entry for FSC September.


On behalf of the FSC Mod team,


Regards,

Re: FSC 115: September 2018 | Bochum, Germany | THE SHOW!

Great show JChan :D I like the design for the banners.

A little something about the :uk: entries. It was brought to my attention that apparently people have criticised my choices based on the fact the songs I send are very similar. I am the only UK juror, and as that juror I send the songs I love in the genres I love, and nothing else. Diversity is not a thought to me at all, and I wont ever send songs for the sake of diversity. Some of you may choose entries with diversity in mind, and that's ok, but for me my main aim is to send purely what I love and listening too right now. So if that's a huge line of Dance/Pop, latino style etc songs then so be it. That said, I hope you all enjoy the :uk: entry this edition. :mrgreen:

:no: For September 2018 Norway goes for a beautiful Nordic Pop-ballad! :D Performer of “Mother”, a song taken from her 2018 EP “HEX”, and returning to the FSC for Norway, is the popular multi-talented singer and songwriter Ina Wroldsen. For more information and promotion of the entry (including lyrics in English) please check out the FSC Norway-thread and/or the FSC Promotions-thread! Hope you’ll enjoy it!


Great Show, [MENTION=15333]JChan[/MENTION] - and Good luck to all entries this month!
