The idea has been put forth to create a series of free, downloadable, streamable collections of tracks from sound artists from EACH individual State in the USA,
and then to have these collections all linked under ONE banner as "ONE NATION UNDER NOISE"

Each state would be represented by a compilation that was collected and organized by someone IN their state,
and once activated, then a link would be added to the group listing on this site.


WANT TO JOIN??

Someone wishing to organize a state collection are required to have/do the following:

1. a way of posting the information somewhere for it to be seen and accessible to the general public. (a web page, blog, etc)

2. Then they would need to choose how long they wish to accept submissions for..
(2 - 3 months is probably a good time window) and the date for the deadline.

3. create a bandcamp page (either exclusively for this project, or as part of an existing label presence on bandcamp) for your state's BIG NOISE COMPILATION

4. create cover art for your states BIG NOISE COLLECTION. (so far there has been a universal look to the 2 collections done so far...keeping them looking the same will kind of help with the uniformity of the overall project....trying to keep it simple here)

5. collect & organize tracks and upload them to the bandcamp page

6. announce and promote the project to as many people in and out of your state as possible...someone outside of your state might have a friend that is inside your state...tell as many people as possible. Once you have let us know you are gonna handle your state.. then we will list your state.. the deadline, and your email address so people can reach you.

7. RELEASE THE PROJECT and have your state represented.


SUBMISSION GUIDLINES
WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS.. you must find YOUR STATE and submit directly to that State's collector

These are the basic submission guides for the project, the submission information should be as follows for each state's comp:
1. all tracks should only be 2 minutes maximum in length.
2. WAV FILES should be encouraged.. (or you will end up doing a lot of transfering formats)
3. only submissions from CURRENT residents of each state are permitted
(so just because you were born and raised in California.. but you live in Arizona now.. you are from Arizona.)

collections are open to all residents of the State from which the collection is being done from who are doing sound recordings in the noise/sound art/experimental/avant garde genres

Track information should include the CITY from which the artist dwells in from their state, and a link to their website or their email address for contact.
