Hi Jake

Hope you had good new year. Thought I'd let you know that we're
extending the deadline for the Linux Audio CD by a couple of weeks - can
you forward the new info to the lists you posted it to before? We've had
a really good response, so are possibly thinking of doing a double CD
(which gives plenty more room!).



Linux Open Source Sound CD (L.O.S.S.)

[Planned release date - April 2005]

Deadline for submissions: 21-01-05

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

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

How to submit your proposal:

[A maximum of 2 tracks per artist, between 20 secs and 8 mins in

Send a DATA CD containing the following files:

- Your audio track(s) in .wav format, 16bit, 44.1khz in either mono or
- A text document stating your name, contact details (email and mailing
