Calling all music creators
Showcase your music, be paid for your work, and be a part of a snapshot in recorded music of a once-in-a-generation experience.
NMC Recordings is embarking on a mission to collect recordings of all kinds of music made across England during lockdown. We encourage all music creators to take part and submit recordings of all sorts, whatever the music genre, and whatever your age, experience, or background. We want to hear from music creators about your personal experience of lockdown and how it impacted your work.For instance, was lockdown a negative or positive experience for you? Were your recordings created in unusual circumstances? Were unconventional instruments, collaborators, and recording techniques involved?You are invited to submit your music and tell us about your lockdown experience. Tracks will then be selected and curated by our regional Gateway Partners to create album-length selections of music; there will be six music ‘albums’ in total representing tracks created in the North, the Midlands, London, East, South East and South West England.
Once we have gathered your submissions, NMC will use this data to create a searchable map and database showing how and where creators were working during lockdown.
Contributing creators whose tracks are selected will be paid for their work according to an Musicians Union-approved fee scale.
Deadline for submissions: 3.00pm, 15 December.
