Submit A Demo
A short article on the best way to submit a demo to Focused Silence.
We are a fledgeling label. but we need your music – however, we do not accept all submissions. So, if you think you have what it takes, and the music is experimental, please send your demo over to me using this wetransfer.com app – https://andybackhouse.wetransfer.com. Please take your time on this matter – I get sent a crate load of submissions every week, and very few make it to the label. See, there is a lot of effort and expense to put out an album – so, I hope you do not mind.
We would like to invite you to contribute to Focused Silence. We are on hand to advise on the technical aspect of ‘Audio Photography’ – failing that the web is awash with good, solid advice on this art form. Here, here & here are great places to start. As a field recordist, you will trawl your local area looking for interesting sounds. Once you have recorded and edited them, please send the finished article (with your contact details) using this web app – https://andybackhouse.wetransfer.com – as WAV files. If approved, your album will be released on the label “Focused Silence.” We will offer the approved albums as a high-quality Download and, eventually when we get around to it, Compact Disc. If you think you have what it takes, please get in contact with us by email. We would like you to record the ambience of your locality with whatever means are available. We recommend sending the demo in using www.wetransfer.com.
