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.
