Friends, it looks like we are inside at home protecting ourselves, family and the public for the duration. Since it is on everyone’s minds, Patchable 0014 was shaping up to be rather similar to a contest that Waveform Magazine just launched. Therefore, we are combining the NYMS Patchable with this contest. It is up to you if you want to submit to the contest or only the Patchable. Good luck, stay safe.
NOTE: New York Modular Society is in no way affiliated with Waveform Magazine and has no direct involvement in this contest. this is not a partnership between our organizations. NYMS is simply encouraging artists to participate in the Waveform contest.
THE WAVEFORM COVID 19 CORONAVIRUS SONG CONTEST
While we are saddened by what’s happening everywhere, and disappointed (but obviously understanding) by the cancellations of conventions, live performances, jobs, etc., taking place, health is always the number one priority—mental health included. As may of us are cooped up due to Covid 19, and feeling anxious, sad, restless, isolated, or just plain bored, we’ve decided to hold a contest for songs about/inspired/uninspired by what’s going on. We’re hoping this will help to foster in a little creative positivity to the situation as well as keep us from going stir crazy. Have we mentioned that there will be prizes?!?!? Stay safe, healthy, and creative everyone!
1st place – One year print/digital subscription to Waveform + Waveform goodie bag + Waveform Switchenator DIY kit
2nd place – One year print/digital subscription + Waveform Switchenator DIY kit
3rd place – One year print/digital subscription
- Song must be new and written for this contest, so no back catalog stuff please
- Only 1 entry per person
- Artwork for a theoretical LP cover must accompany track. What can we say? We like art. 500 x 500 pixel JPG
- Songs/artwork must be submitted as a WAV file via email to email@example.com with the title “Coronavirus song Contest” in the subject line, by April 15th 2020 – tax day in the US.
READ THIS FINE-ISH PRINT:
We will alert winners via email and announce them on social media outlets. We’ll also yell it out in the streets. By submitting a song/artwork for this contest, you give us the right to publish it on our Bandcamp page, wherein we might make a special Waveform COVID 19 Coronavirus compilation for download. If we do this, it will most likely be free, but if we decide to charge for it, ALL proceeds (minus Bandcamp fees) will go to an appropriate charity of our choice. Only select entries might make it on this compilation, but that is subject to change. In the case that you have already purchased a Waveform subscription and win one of the prizes, your subscription will be extended include a extra year/4 issues.
IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO DONATE ANYTHING TO FURTHER ENHANCE THE PRIZE LOOT, PLEASE EMAIL US AT firstname.lastname@example.org AND WE CAN MAKE ARRANGEMENTS.
