  • Deadline:

(apologies for cross posting)

What is it?
Free Original MP3 and Polyphonic Ringtones. Collaborative Mobile Content. Open Mobile Platform. Creative Sonic Arts on your Mobile.

http://www.c21tones.com is a new creative mobile audio site designed to create a wealth of new, exciting and creative ringtone content and promote the work of musicians and sonic artists. C21tones is part of the successful international art project run by Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council bringing art from 21 Asian nations to the North West of England.

www.c21tones.com lets you submit original compositions and download any tone to your mobile for free. It is a participatory, user generated, arts project. A series of workshops is currently being developed to allow participants in the Blackburn with Darwen region to create their own mobile content.

Call For Submissions
We are currently accepting submissions from musicians, sonic artists, and anyone, anywhere wishing to experiment with mobile audio. Check out the site to hear and download other original content and visit the ‘Submit a Tone’ section to send us yours.

How It Works
We can accept any MIDI or MP3 file under 150K. Once it is uploaded to the site, our software optimises the file for over 400 phones and sends it by SMS direct to your phone. It’s really simple.

Featured Work
The site is growing in popularity, and if you submit your work, it will be heard, and possibly used as a great ringtone by thousands of participants.

Submission Guidelines
Submit your work via the site at http://www.c21tones.com.
There is no deadline for works, if we feature your work, we will let you know by email when it is included.
