Baltimore Museum of Art seeking new music for smartphone tour
The Baltimore Museum of Art is seeking original music for a smartphone tour that will be introduced when the Contemporary Wing reopens in the fall.
To be eligible, composers, sound artists, musician collectives, etc., have to be least 18 years old and based in the Baltimore region.
Between three and five applicants will be selected; each will receive a $300 award, acknowledgement on the mobile tour and an opportunity to perform at the re-opening activities.
Applicants are asked to ...
"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" (or send links to existing sites where the music can be downloaded.)
Short, original compositions are desired for use as audio interludes and interstitials on the tour that will be accessed via smart phones by visitors in the renovated Contemporary Wing.
The deadline for submission is 5 p.m. June 29. Winners will be selected July 6. They will have until Sept. 4 to deliver the music. For more details, check out the BMA's announcement.
