The IDMf Netlabel returns to announce our 66th release -
Competition Type: Open Genre
Deadline: November 15th, 2023
Exact timing isn’t important as submissions can be accepted late upon request and date extension can be considered.
Description & Restrictions: This is a soundtrack based compilation ie the soundtrack to something one would feel or a concept. Certain feelings like joy, sadness, melancholy or a concept such as the vastness of space, or anything similar you can come up with provided you can articulate what that is with a coherent description. Minimal restrictions however incorporating found sounds in some way is heavily encouraged.
Please leave -3 to -6dbfs peak on your clean (no fx) master channel.
It is also ideal if you send it in at 24 bit 44.1 Khz. (Sending at greater than 24 is not a problem, and less than this can be managed, but your quality will suffer, so please do attempt this standard).
Please send a streaming/downloadable link, no attachments. Please include artist name and forum name if they are different.
Full submission policy can be found here, for those who are interested -
Release Date & Title: TBD
MISCELLANY: Should you find any of the above unclear please feel free to post any questions related to this comp in this thread. Additionally, should you find any thematic aspects you think of or come across inspiring enough to discuss publicly, please…don’t be shy and make a post. And finally, once you have settled on something thematically please let us know as it might inspire those who find inspiration lacking.
The IDMforums is an Electronic Music Discussion Board so anything you would like to say about your process or general related thoughts along the way, again…don’t be shy. This is a theme based VA Compilation however the parameters are loose. That said, do not allow any of our parameters be a barrier to working on and submitting something, we are confident a thematic eliminant could be applied to your project after the fact.
