It's kind of like Dancing with the Stars, but different. Contestants enter new music productions on Neocha.com (right here), and they're judged on "1) Production quality 2) Originality, creativity 3) Structure and form." A formalist critique if I've ever seen one...
The categories are:
1) Introverted: ambient, neo-classical, IDM, downtempo, trip hop, glitch, dub/dub-step, etc.
2) Extroverted: dance/club music like techno, house, electro, hip hop, drum n bass, etc.
