Universal, ‘Scott Pilgrim’ put up a ‘Fight’

Universal Pictures, ABKCO Records and online music creation site Indaba are asking Scott Pilgrim fans to take some liberties with the “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” score.
 
“Fight,” a pre-release track from Nigel Godrich’s score, is available for editing on Indaba’s website as part of a tie-in contest for the pic. The mind behind the best new cut of the song, as judged by director Edgar Wright and artist Dan “The Automator” Nakamura, will walk away with a customized Scott Pilgrim Fender guitar and a one-on-one collaboration session with Nakamura, among other goodies.
 
The contest is on through Aug. 16, and in the week since it’s opened, there have already been 1,500 submissions. Additional contenders can enter through Indaba’s website. Wright and Nakamura will handpick their winner, and a batch of runners-up, around the end of the month.
 
Nakamura, who assisted Godrich in a couple of score’s tracks, says he’s looking for an entry that’s “not typical.”
 
“You just want to avoid the ones that are just what was already there,” Nakamura said. “I think the real interesting part is when someone has an interesting vision of their own.”
