call for artists

    May 17 2006 | 3:45 am
    I've recently been working on getting a multimedia (kitty scratch of death) label off the ground, and am now working on putting together the first compilation album. The plan is to pair up audio artists with video artists for a multimedia release. This will be done via random number generator/matching patch (made in max), so that both audio and visual artist will have the challenge of possibly working with something they never would have chosen normally (however, for non-compilation releases, artists may freely choose to work with whomever they choose should they desire to do so). Min/max length for each track is 1:30 - 8:00. Because this is the first release, if your track ends up being too long for you to be able to work with, we will be able to work something out.
    After amassing enough artists, I hope to create a community where people may share tips/tricks, come up with their own ideas for releases, and meet other like-minded artists.
    I would like to gather as many interested visualists as possible at the moment, so if this sounds like something you may want to do, or if you would like further questions answered, please e-mail me: bryanteoh AT Links to samples of your work are encouraged, but not required at this point. I'm not out to screw anyone with this project, or make any money. This is a chance for you (and me) to get your/our work out there and meet other people to work with in the future.

      This project proposal was made like a year ago, but lost steam partially due to laziness. I'm interested in picking it back up again, though, if there is enough support from the visual community.
      The original project idea was to collect 15 noise tracks from audio artists, then find 15 visualists that would randomly be paired with a track. The challenge would be to create a video for the sound.
      If this, in fact, gets rolling again, I plan to release a limited press dvd. The idea for this first project is not super crazy or anything, but after I get a better feel for facilitating projects like this, I'd like to start trying other multimedia based ideas. As of now, the label is conceived as largely web-based, but if I can find enough financial resources, and there is enough interest, I wouldn't be opposed to trying to do more physical releases in the future. It'd be nice to start sponsoring events as well, but we need to walk before we run ;)
      The audio tracks have already been selected. A few visualists had been accepted for the project, but since it's been about a year, I'd need to check back with them to see if they'd still be interested. Regardless, if anyone is interested, please contact me with samples of your work.
