Here are the basic steps:
Create your new masterpiece using either the aiff, flac, or mp3 versions of the track. You can use outside samples, as long as they’re licensed under a license similar to (or less restrictive than) this track. (Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike—try using the FMA search box and under “Filter Results by Use” check “modify, adapt, and build upon”)
Upload the masterpiece by hitting the "submit" button (below)
Kiila and the ISSUE Project Room / FMA Curatorial Team judge the entries.
Win a signed LP of Kiila’s newest album Tuota tuota with an mp3 download!
This contest is totally over. The winner will be announced on Nov. 22.
Note that all entries must be shared under a similar license to Kiila’s (that is, “Share Alike”). So, as good as these remixes are, don’t go trying to pitch them to Kanye or anything (without getting Kiila in on the deal).
Minor Musics, a new thematic series focusing on cultural exchange, will provide visibility and exposure to micro-communities of experimental musicians from around the world. Taking its name from Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guiattari’s Kafka: Towards a Minor Literature, Minor Musics refers to the personal diary of a nation (as opposed to its official historiography) within which localized practices lead to the creation of dynamic new communities and innovative forms of expression. The series will foster critical inquiry into the symbiotic relationships between art practice, geography, and culture.
ISSUE Project Room will present Minor Musics: Finland on the evenings of October 29 and November 6, 2010, at our 100-person capacity loft space located in the Old American Can Factory.
