Community Project: Music Compilation CD

UPDATE: You can find the latest information about the project here along with an FAQ and contributor list.

One of the aspects I greatly admire about the communities I interface with (primarily Flash developers, but digital tech people of all stripes) is that there is such a diverse amount of talent, interest, and drive among these individuals. More than any other group of people I’ve come across, there seems to be an inordinate amount of developers who also spend their time doing some form of audio composition. What better way to highlight their efforts on both fronts than to put together a compilation album of their audio work along with related information and offer it to the community at large?

Ideally, I’d like to get 12-18 tracks together along with a nice digital booklet for the community. These items would be made available as a professional-grade digital download with both a full bin/cue CD-Audio image file and high-quality digital audio track versions along with printable album art and descriptive booklet highlighting the work of these talented individuals and groups.

Submissions will close on July 1st, 2010.

If you wish to contribute and have your work included in the compilation, here are the details:

  1. You must be a designer, developer, or some other tech person. This doesn’t have to be just Flash or Adobe stuff- anything goes!
  2. FTP your uncompressed audio track to Fractured Vision Media servers (connection details below).
  3. Include a text file with the title of the track, your name/alias, a short paragraph describing how your music effects your des/dev efforts or vice/versa – how does it all relate? Links to download/purchase your albums. Other info as deemed appropriate.
  4. Include cover art for your track or some representative images.
  5. This will be a freely distributed album through the Fractured Vision Media label – no money need change hands. A community effort.
  6. All work will be distributed with a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 United States License
