**SUBMISSIONS OPEN** IDMfBT005 - Ambient Soundscapes

Quote:
This will be an "Ambient Soundscapes" beat tape release, which means..obviously..that we are looking for entries that are Ambient Soundscapes.

Though people often differ on the just what Ambient music is, most will agree that, as a general rule of thumb, all instrumental movie soundtracks are ambient soundscapes. This might help clarify just what we are looking for here.

You should be aiming to reflect some over-all theme or emotion musically in the track you are entering. If done right, when player, it should make the listener "feel" that theme or emotion..or, at the very least, think about it.

It's OK to have a beat or drums in your piece, but keep in mind that they shouldn't stand out too much on the track, as they usually would within any other genre..and be more of an aid to you in setting the over-all mood of the track.

The most important point of all is that you have fun doing this..if there is no fun in it, then what's the point of doing it in the first place!

Good luck to everyone taking part.

General Submission Rules:

-all tracks must be shared privately to the sublabel's dropbox here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]


tracks are not to be shared publicly and participants will be disqualified if found doing so. It is also important that when you share to the dropbox add [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
to those who can view the track because he will be the one that’s looking over the submissions along with me.

-all tracks must be submitted in WAV format minimum 44100/24bit sample rate.

-minimum -3db headroom with nothing on the master bus.

-label your track filename with your artist name, forum username and track title. Please do that in this order because it is a hassle to sort through a bunch of randomly named tunes.

-include a contact e-mail in the track information, along with a clear indication that it is for the ambient beat tape.


-The deadline for all submissions will be January 30th, 2012 (WITH NO EXTENTIONS).


Ambient Soundscape Beat Tape Guidelines:

-AMBIENT SOUNDSCAPES ONLY! No Glitch/Dubstep/Rap/Trance or anything else..JUST AMBIENT SOUNSCAPES. (Keep in mind..all music has ambiance..but not all music is ambient!)

-Each entry has to be between 5 and 10 minutes long..(NO EXCEPTIONS).

-Only 1 track per member can be submitted for consideration.

-Entries must be your own original work..meaning it came from your talented mind, through your fingers, be means of keyboards and/or controllers, into your PC/MAC..not the work of somebody else you remastered/remixed.

-Those judging cannot vote for their own entry..obvious really!

Re: **SUBMISSIONS OPEN** IDMfBT005 - Ambient Soundscapes

I might give this one a try aswell!
I have been experimenting with ambient alot lately, and pianos e.t.c. So why not?



...Or is this one of those mumbo jumbos where you only want noise (relaxing noise) or are melodies and pianos and stuff accepted?

Loving this idea. As I'm going to be rushing my ass off to get a breakcore submission in even with the extension.

Re: **SUBMISSIONS OPEN** IDMfBT005 - Ambient Soundscapes

Breakcore, then Ambient and at last the Open Genre compilation.
Should have a submission for every one of them

Is the above 5 minutes really a hard limit or do you accept some slightly shorter tracks?
My track is a little longer than 5 minutes but I'm thinking to cut some small parts making it a little bit to short. (but I could of course add some other stuff tbh)

Shtuffe, check out the videos linked in Kong's post above to get a better idea of the kind of music we are looking for in this. But, yes, "melodies and pianos" are more than OK..as long as the music they make is ambient in nature.
