Kyle Baker, co-founder of the Nashville sound art festival Soundcrawl, gave Theatre Intangible an exclusive scoop on an upcoming contest:
In an effort to raise funds for Soundcrawl’s 501c3 incorporation, Soundcrawl is hosting its first contest. Sound artists and composers are invited to submit audio miniatures (aiff/wav) of less than than 90 seconds. The entry fee is $10, and there are some awesome prize packages:
First Prize: 1 year digital subscription to Electronic Musician and a Zoom H4n
Second Prize: 1 year digital subscription to Electronic Musician and Sennheiser HD280 Headphones
Third Prize: 1 year digital subscription to Electronic Musician.
Additionally, the top 7 (including 1st, 2nd and 3rd) selections will be included in a compilation EP distributed on Noisetrade.
The contest has a uniquely Soundcrawl format:
Feb 14 – Mar 26: Artists submit works via soundcrawl.org, complete the submission forms and fees:
March 26-April 1: The top ten works are posted to Soundcrawl’s Soundcloud page for online “favoriting.” (open to the public)
The works with the most favoritings will win the prizes.
April 2: winners announced on Soundcrawl.org, prizes sent out.”
Kyle says the submissions should be aiff or wav. The call for submissions is not yet open. Join the mailing list at soundcrawl.org to be alerted when the call opens. A Zoom H4n would be a nice addition to any sound artist’s arsenal! Sound artists, get crackin’!
