We are inviting proposals to commission four new audio art works that will form part of basic.fm’s library collection. Submission form is at the bottom of this page.
basic.fm’s new audio commissions will feature frequently in the programme between events, broadcast takeovers and regular shows. This growing collection represents a library of works for broadcast, which to date includes commissioned work from Mark Vernon, Ed Carter, The Noize Choir and Sarah Boothroyd. We are seeking to expand this library with playful, unexpected, exciting and innovative proposals in response to the principle themes of basic.fm (broadcast art, sound and independent culture).
All proposals must be for new not existing work.
The proposed work must be 20 minutes or over in duration.
There is a one-off artist fee of £250 for each commissioned piece. We are commissioning four new works in total to broadcast on basic.fm from February 2013.
This call is open to all artists, musicians, field recordists and sonic artists regardless of nationality, age, or career stage.
The deadline for commission proposals is Friday 18 January 2013 at 5pm (GMT). Applicants will be notified regarding the result of their proposal via email by Tuesday 22 January 2013.
