THE BMA WANTS ORIGINAL MUSIC FOR NEW SMARTPHONE TOUR

The BMA invites the Baltimore sound art/music community to be a part of the reopening of the BMA’s Contemporary Wing in Fall 2012 and is asking sound artists/musicians to create an original composition for inclusion in a new smartphone tour. There will be 3-5 sound artists/musicians selected and each selected sound artist/musician will be awarded a $300 cash prize, permanent recognition in the mobile tour, and an opportunity to perform at the BMA as part of the contemporary collection re-opening celebrations.

Each sound artist/musician, or collective should send a brief statement on why they are interested in this project and one 30-second sample of original music in an mp3 format not exceeding 8 MB. (Samples from previous projects are welcomed.) Alternately, you may submit a link to a website where your music sample can be downloaded/streamed.

E-mail submissions or questions to toursound@artbma.org.

Submissions are due no later than 5:00 PM EDT Friday, June 29.
