Founded in 2008, Classwar Karaoke is a label dedicated to the release of experimental music and short-films; principally, by means of a series of ongoing quarterly surveys, made available via FMA & sites such as youtube, internet archive, facebook etc., under Creative Commons license 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/. All material remains the property of the respective artists and is offered for free download in line with this license. The ten surveys published so far feature over one-hundred artists, from all over the world; and the material in toto represents significant documentation of the experimental scene itself. Involvement in the project has helped spawn many fruitful collaborations, live-shows and a vibrant exchange of ideas; so much so that, for several repeat-participants, Classwar Karaoke is as much a collective as it is a mechanism for the release of new material.
If you are interested in participating, please explore this space in the first instance in order to establish whether your material fits, stylistically and in terms of outlook, with that of the current survey. There are two methods of participation: either with a piece of music or a short-film. On rare occasions, we may invite both. Each method also includes an image and a piece of text. General enquiries, submissions of audio (320Kbps MP3 only), film, images and text should be sent to
