Big Michigan Noise Compilation - currently accepting experimental/noise submissions!
Placenta Recordings is happy to invite all residents of Michigan to participate in a compilation of NOISE/EXPERIMENTAL songs and sound bites.
All residents of Michigan please contribute to the BIG MICHIGAN NOISE COMPILATION.
Deadline: Dec 23rd, 2015
Send a recording of 2 minutes max.
ALL CONTRIBUTORS: please take note of the 2-minute time limit.
In these formats: mp3, WAV, FLAC, cassette, CDR, or MiniDisc.
FOR OPTIMUM SOUND QUALITY (if you're concerned about such things)...
I RECOMMEND SENDING LOSSLESS AUDIO FILES (such as WAV or FLAC).
Digital audio files must have a minimum sampling rate of 44.100kHz.
The compilation will be published online on Bandcamp as a free download.
All participants can make copies of the compilation and distribute it digitally or on tape or disc.
THIS IS AN EXPERIMENTAL/SOUND ART/NOISE PROJECT
All styles of noise and experimental music are welcome.
Basically, no limits accept that you should be a Michigan resident.
(This is NOT a call for "bands" to send in 2 minute songs...)
One contribution per act. If you do solo stuff and are a member of a group, you can appear on two contributions.
If you want to send a disc or tape, my address is:
Placenta Recordings c/o Jay Watson P.O. Box 442187 Detroit, MI 48244 USA
Digital files can be sent to my email address: email@example.com either attached to an email or via Wetransfer.com
A couple more things:
- Your track does not need to be exclusive to this project.
- If possible, you should avoid obvious copyright infringement,
due to the fact that Bandcamp has a nasty habit of removing entire user sites if they receive copyright complaints.
Be sure to include artist name, track title and (optional) contact address such as email address or website address send tracks directly or via a reliable transfer service like wetransfer.com
send to : firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include this information with your track:
YOUR PROJECT NAME
YOUR TRACK TITLE
YOUR WEBSITE INFO
(which will be published).
& YOUR MICHIGAN CITY LOCATION
PLEASE INCLUDE THE WORDS "BIG MICHIGAN" IN THE SUBJECT OF ALL E-MAIL
I can generally deal with any sort of sound file...but if I have a problem I will let you know.
All files WILL be transfered to 16bit wav files...so sending them that would be nice.
this project is currently OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS. ..
JUST TO CLARIFY.. this is a call for submissions for NOISE/EXPERIMENTAL sounds.
All tracks are the rights of those that create them, I just wanna see the project completed.
Any funds sent to Placenta Recordings are always appreciated and go into further projects.
THIS PROJECT was INSPIRED by the BIG FLORIDA NOISE COMPILATION that was organized in the Spring of 2014 by HAL MCGEE. Thank you to Lob Instagon for asking me to handle the Michigan chapter!
IT has gone on to inspire a large scale project called ONE NATION UNDER NOISE...
where we will be attempting to generate large scale compilations of noise artists from EVERY state
I WILL be posting a listing at the bottom this page of artists that have submitted cuts so far, and will continue to update it regularly.
If I left anything out or if anyone has any questions, I am open to them, but I am a busy guy sometimes. You may get a prompt reply, or it may take days...all depending on my time.
