PUSSIFICATION (open call compilation)

Hello friends and neighbors,

NO PART OF IT is happy to announce its first "open call" compilation.

"PUSSIFICATION" is a compilation themed around compositions involving sounds that emanate from the feline variety.

This could be the contact mic'ing of cats, the sound of cats, or cats interacting with instruments/objects such as keyboards or theremins.  If there is a field recording of an exchange involving cats, a soundtrack to it may be acceptable as well, but we do want to discourage original music with a couple cat sounds thrown in.  More of the motivation behind the project is in setting guidelines based on the sounds that cats make, and much less about recordings "inspired by" cats.  There may be exceptions.

This will be in a physical format and contributors will receive a copy of it.  Quality control will be in full effect and submissions that are not accepted will be excluded without notice.

We're not setting a maximum duration for submissions, but if it's longer than 7 minutes, it had better be good!  Video submissions are also being accepted.  People with a knowledge of programming pro DVD menus, who are willing to contribute their services are also being solicited.

The cover art will be of a thorough, surrealist nature, and not of the "neck-beard" persuasion.   Ideally the sounds will reflect that.

The deadline is May 1st, 2017.

Submissions can be sent to nopartofit at gmail dot com via any number of sites such as wetransfer.com, dropbox.com, google drive, mediafire, and so forth.  

Physical submissions can be mailed to:

1002 W. Montrose Ave
Box #130
Chicago, ILL, 60613

Feel free to spread the word to any reasonable human beings you know who may be interested.
