We are a fledgling label. 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 – then please send your demo over to me using the email address [email protected]. Please take your time on this matter – I get send 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. Your best bet is to use www.wetransfer.com to send the music.
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 artform. There are a number of Facebook Groups dealing with the subject matter – here, here & here are good 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) to this email address: [email protected] – 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 ambiance of your locality with whatever means are available.
