>Subject: Call for audio submissions - Linux Open Source Sound CD
>Linux users may be interested in this.
>Linux Open Source Sound CD (L.O.S.S.)
>[Planned release date - April 2005]
>Deadline for submissions: 07-Jan-05
>Access Space, Sheffield's lowtech digital arts organisation, is
>currently calling for submissions for a CD of audio produced with
>open source software, and the Linux operating system.
>There is no specific theme for the curated works, as the concept
>behind the project is freedom of all elements of music manufacture,
>encapsulating style, production software and distribution
>techniques. We hope to receive submissions covering a broad and
>eclectic range of styles, to represent the dynamic nature of
>contemporary open source audio culture. Therefore, contributions are
>invited from musicians of all types, programmers, sound artists or
>artists who use sound.
>The LOSS CD is to be released under a Creative Commons 'Sampling
>Plus' license, so as well as being produced with free software, the
>CD will also extend the ethos of the open source movement into its
>method of distribution. For more information about this license,
>please visit http://creativecommons.org.
>Please do not submit tracks if you are not willing to release your
>work in this manner.
>The LOSS project will develop not only through the CD release, but
>also through a website, aimed at being an ongoing portal for
>producers of open source music to showcase their work. This will
>also offer the works for redistribution under the Creative Commons
>licensing mentioned above. This website will be online later in the
>year at http://www.access-space.org/loss.
>How to submit your proposal:
>[A maximum of 2 tracks per artist, each between 20 seconds and 8
>minutes in length.]
>Send a DATA CD containing the following files:
>- Your audio track(s) in .wav format, 16bit, 44.1khz in either mono or stereo.
>- A text document stating your name, contact details (email and
>mailing address), track title, track length, the software and
>operating system used for producing the track, and a declaration
>that your track does not infringe any copyrights or use any
>unlicensed material.
>- An optional screenshot (in .jpg or .png format) of your software
>setup - which may be used for artwork purposes.
