CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
ICTM: IE FIELDWORK CD PROJECT
ICTM Ireland has recently been successful in obtaining funding from the Arts Council towards the preparation of an audio CD compilation of ethnographic recordings. The collection is intended to be representative of the diverse fieldwork experiences of its membership. That is, primarily researchers based (or at one time based) at academic institutions in Ireland.
This is an open call to members willing to submit a single, 3 minute example of their fieldwork recording, accompanied by a brief résumé (max 200 words) of its social and cultural context. The editorial committee will consider submissions for inclusion.
It is hoped that this recording and booklet will be the first of several to be produced over the next few years, but initially the editorial committee plan to produce a CD consisting of roughly 30 tracks with pertinent liner notes.
The content of the proposed compilation is conceived of as a 50/50 split between Irish music related recordings and recordings made in other cultural contexts by Irish based researchers.
An initial submission in MP3 format will be sufficient for the committee’s selection procedure, but eventually for the final pre production selection a higher quality recording in WAV or similar format will be required.
I would urge you to consider making a submission as I believe that this CD will be an attractive calling card for ICTM Ireland and of considerable value to teachers and lecturers.
The closing date for submissions is: 17/03/2012
Mp3 files, accompanied by one black and white picture (optional) and a brief description should be emailed to: email@example.com
