CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: POST_PIANO 2 OPEN REMIX PROJECT
Term. is hosting an open remix project in conjunction with the release of Taylor Deupree & Kenneth Kirschner’s new CD, post_piano 2.
Post_piano 2 continues Deupree & Kirschner’s open source experiments in digitally-processed piano music. The CD is based entirely on sounds derived from Kirschner’s piano sketch “November 11, 2003.”
For the open remix project, listeners and fellow composers are invited to create their own interpretations of “November 11, 2003” and submit them to 12k. A selection of the most interesting and original variations will be curated and released online by term.
As with Deupree & Kirschner’s CD, the only criterion for remix submissions is that all sounds in the recording must be derived from Kirschner’s piano sketch. These piano sounds should then be processed and transformed in order to create a new and original composition.
"November 11, 2003" is available as Track 4 of post_piano 2. A copy of the piece can be downloaded here.
- deadline for submissions: august 01, 2005.
- not all submissions will be used. 12k will curate an online release with the material we feel best suits the concept. artists will be contacted whether or not their piece is used.
- tracks will be distributed as a free download on 12k's website. no payments or royalties will be distributed.
- 12k's usage will be on a non-exclusive basis only.
to submit a recording:
post a downloadable mp3 online and email the link to email@example.com,
mail a CDR version to: 12k, 47 Lincoln Place #3B, Brooklyn, NY 11217, USA.
