Open call for submissions: Power/Field compilation

Submissions are open for the third Power/Field compilation of field recordings. Recordings of ambient sound using microphones with no manipulation, bar trims, on site overdubbing, or post-processing are wanted. The recordings must have been made outside of traditional performance spaces, can be between three and 15 minutes long and must not have been previously released.

The first two compilations can be downloaded here and here. The third will be produced as a digital edition, and in a run of 200 CD-Rs packaged in screen printed sleeves due for release in March 2012. Tracks and information (including title, location, equipment list and images) should be sent via email to bob[at]halfnormal[dot]com. If possible recordists are asked to upload tracks to their own sites, although FTP transfer is also available. Deadline for submissions 1 January 2012. More info here.
