Power/field compilation #2 - Call for Submissions


Deadline:
Sat Oct 31, 2009 00:00

Power/field compilation #2 - Call for Submissions - deadline oct 31

Tracks wanted for the second edition of Power/field compilation. Originally released in 2007, Power/field is a collection of recordings made "in the field" with processing on-site.

Traditional field recording captures ambient sound in various locations via microphone without any effects. Power/field recordings are field recordings made with effects processing units used (only) while on-site. The intent is to take experimental music practices outside of their traditional operating venues: composing studios and performance venues.

Aesthetically speaking, anything goes - the first edition contains a wide variety of drone, microsound, synth, and harsh noise. The recordings can come from a wide variety of musical practices - listen to the first compilation (link below) for examples. Random thought: it is possible to do this without electronics - i'm curious to hear what you might come up with if you are so inclined; however, it is suggested for all to listen to the first edition (links below) for examples of succesful submissions.

There is an honor system on the basic rules: the recording must be made outside of the studio or the stage; no overdubs except on-site; no re-processing; no edits. The submission can be an excerpt of a longer take, and basic normalizing of the levels it is fine. Track length 1-15 min preferred, multiple short tracks are fine to submit.

The final project will come out end of the year, edition of 200 CDrs. The first edition had 2 CDrs, as there were a ton of great submissions. Not sure of the packaging yet; the first edition packaging was cardboard sleeves from stumptown printers, hand-painted and screen-printed by myself.

The entire contents of the first edition can be found online here:
