Hi everyone, I was reminded today that there are some loyal people out there wondering what I am doing. So here is one of my projects that I am currently working on. I am a member of the Island Arts Council's music group and we are asking local musicians to submit samples of their music for inclusion in a CD compilation of local musicians. The CD will be called Whidbey Celebrates.
submissions must be:
1.Original Music – No Cover Material
2.No more than three different submissions.
3.Performance of the selected song at the CD release party, date yet to be determined.
4.Signed agreement allowing Whidbey Island Arts Council a limited one time use of the music strictly for the “Whidbey Celebrates” CD compilation.
5.Submission of a short biography and a photograph of the musician.
6.An honorary one (1) year membership will be awarded for selected pieces for the Whidbey Celebrates CD.
7.Completed Packet submitted by the September 1st deadline, including biography and photo, and music track to: Whidbey Island Arts Council Music Committee Chair PO Box 918 Clinton, WA 98236
8.Final selection resides with the music committee chair.
9.The Compilation is a fundraiser for the Whidbey Island Arts Council. However, a $100 honorarium will be awarded for the songs that are selected for recording on the Whidbey Celebrates CD. This honorarium will be paid to the musicians from CD sales revenue after the initial cost of production is covered. Musicians will not be paid unless CD sales revenue is sufficient to cover this expense for all artists whose work is included on the CD.
The date for submissions is no later than July 31,2010. This is for local Whidbey Island musicians. You must live on the island at least part of the year.
Thanks so much for your patience with the blog. We appreciate you so much and hope you will stay tuned for much more events and news.
Music on Whidbey Island.
