THE ROAD AHEAD
ARGALI RECORDS NETLABEL PRESENTS
“THE ROAD AHEAD” COMPILATION
EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC, GRAPHICS, AND DESIGN
[Submissions at: c h a n d l e r n [ a t ] g m a i l [ d o t ] c o m
Argali Records Netlabel is now accepting submissions for the upcoming compilation “The Road Ahead”. For this project, we are mainly looking for experimental electronica, avant-garde music, industrial, IDM/glitch and similar sub-strains of these genres. However, we are not limiting submissions to these directions. When in doubt, send in a song and we will tell you what we think. If you need examples of what we are about and examples of what we are looking for, feel free to check out some of the previous releases on Argali, the previous compilation “Time Will Pass”, or some our allied netlabel friends.
Currently there is no concrete deadline for when submissions can be submitted. For the sake of this text, a tentative date of July 1st has been set, although this may be changed if needed. Though this will most likely will not be an issue, Argali Records reserves the right to reject any submission for any reason (when in doubt, ask…we don’t bite). IMPORTANT: When you submit your song, please be sure to clearly label your file with your project/song name. If you have a site/Soundcloud/etc, feel free to include that as well. We will be including an ‘band/musician’ list in the linear notes and/or graphic design of the finished project.
Pictures/Art: We are also accepting graphics/art submissions for this compilation as well. Augment your auditory experience with a visual component! In terms of what we will NOT accept, see above (basically no overly graphic/political material etc), but in terms of what we WILL accept we are basically saying almost anything goes here (especially since this is the first time the graphic design of the release was not either handled in house or by one specific individual). While Argali releases graphics usually are around 1500×1500 or 3000×1500 (basically ‘cd booklet/cover’ format), we will accept smaller or larger images (as long as it’s larger than a thumbnail and smaller than a two-bedroom apartment). Images can be sent to the email listed above, the same basic rules apply (clearly label the file, etc).
Conceptual Food For Thought: No set theme, although given that the previous compilation regarded the advent of 2012 and the various theories, concepts, and prophecies associated with the end of that year, anything vaguely futurist and/or hopeful would be greatly appreciated.
