OFFICIAL LETTER OF INTENT / RELEASE INFORMATION
Blessings to you reading this! We hope you are excellent!
Glitch.fm and Be Green Records are excited to announce a collaboration with some of our favorite artists and fresh new groundbreaking producers for a 2012 benefit album.
Music and art has enriched each of our lives so much, we have chosen to use it as a medium to do positive things. By collaborating with like minded individuals, we are able to do so much more as a community and to give back to the world around us. Focusing on feeding, clothing, sheltering, and providing medical care for those most in need, is our primary intention. We believe we can achieve this when we all come together.
“Be the Change you wish to see in the World,” is one of the most inspiring quotes the creators of Be Green Records have ever been influenced by. And personally, through meeting countless individuals who want to help and just don’t know what they as one person can do, is the inspiration for this album. Many people gathered together, each doing just a little, does affect huge change, and since we are all passionate about music – we thought this would be the best way we could benefit from both worlds.
CONFIRMED ARTISTS CONTRIBUTING SO FAR
THE DIGITAL CONNECTION
AND MORE TBA!
VISIONARY ARTISTS CONTRIBUTING TBA
The compilation will benefit 3 major things.
33.3% of all profits will go equally to these established charities making an impact internationally:
Save The Children http://www.savethechildren.org;
Doctors Without Borders http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org
Conscious Alliance, a grassroots charity started by a college student to address hunger in our local communities.
33.3% of the profits will go to funding Be Green Records next benefit compilation, scheduled for the Autumn Equinox, fund our sustainable and Tachyonic Enhanced Merchandise and Art , and help promote our ideals in an ecological fashion.
And 33.3% of the album will benefit http://glitch.fm ‘s efforts to become a Non Profit, and further promote our station’s sound as ecologically as possible.
Info for artists submissions:
Deadline for submissions = May 20th 2012
We are now accepting submissions from Bass music artists, producers, and visionary artists, at our dropbox or we also have secure FTP, or Opendrive accounts – or any secure method of transfer that works for you is good.
Final submissions for music should be in pre master format – uncompressed 44.1 24 bit wavs with -3 peaks – 6 db headroom for mastering – securely transferred via one of our accepted methods.
We are looking at bandcamp distribution only – unless artists want to individually work on different projects via different release mediums or distributors.
We are looking at doing benefit art and merchandising collectible hard copies of sustainable items that will benefit the project as well.
A donation will be required for the album. If there are a lot of incredible submissions – we were thinking to break it into a sacred number of tracks, and have each sold for some sacred number price as a minimum donation to insure maximum benefit.
You agree in submitting your work – that this is a benefit – unless other projects are agreed to on an individual basis – all proceeds go to charities or other benefits – as compensation for your submission, you will be given a limited number of download codes for promotional purposes and options for merchandising projects at 33.3% profits licensing ( please see http://www.begreenrecords.com/intention/ http://www.begreenrecords.com/intention/alternative-business-structure/ for more information )
Music and art is our passion, it is the universal language. We believe that through it we can achieve a better future for us all.
Much love and luck to you! we super look forward to hearing your awesome music!!!
