  • Ambient Online Compilation Vol. 3 PDF Booklet to accompany release

    Attention ALL submitting artists:

    We want to include a PDF booklet with the Compilation Volume #3 release. It will consist of the artwork from the cover art voting (I presume we are doing the artwork thing again…), and this time there will be an artist page for each of the artists whose music is included in the compilation.

    In order to create the artist pages, we would like to have the artists provide some things:
    • Artwork you want to use to accompany the song(s). Original artwork would be preferred. if you send someone else's artwork, please be sure it is licensed under Creative Commons and include the licensing and attribution info. Please!
    • Any text you want to have accompany the artwork -this could be a description of the song, or of your creative process, or it could be poetry, or quotation, etc.
    • A brief bio.
    • A profile photo.



    Be warned…If you don't provide new stuff, I will go mining in your AO profile page! :biggrin:

    For any who don't have or cannot produce artwork for their songs, we are hereby soliciting help from other willing AO members. Please let me know if you are in either category.

    I have volunteered to compile the booklet, so the correct way for you to submit your artwork, photos, bios, etc, will be to PM me when you are ready. I will set up a Box.com folder to upload the material to. I will assemble the artist pages from whatever you provide. We have a template. I will do some word counts and let you know how many words maximum will fit in the available text blocks.

    With your enthusiastic input we can make this a great addition to the Volume #3 release! :thumbsup:

    Cheers,
    Windspace

      Sounds like a good idea, that's the beauty of digital releases, the sky's the limit regarding bundled extras.

      I have a stock of blurry photos if anyone wants one. :D

        I doubt anyone will opt for my random doodlings, which can be seen on most of my later SoundCloud tracks, or at http://karmera.deviantart.com/gallery/ but you never know... :nuts:

          Interesting. As for me, I probably will be able to provide an imagefile. Definitely opting out on any text, bio, or profile pic

              Aren't blurry photos just the ambient of visual art? >.>
              Meh.

                What size should the imagery be optimised for? Standard CD case front panels? I may have to lose some weight.

                Any enforced dieting will probably have an effect upon the bio data.

                  I don't think there's any set size actually...but any enforced dieting would probably come with undocumented health benefits. Might be a good idea?! :dunno:

                    At least worth a gold star at your next doctor visit!

                      Look forward to the image file. Absolutely respect your opting out on the rest.

                      Cheers!

                      Edit: Although we might just have to replace the rest with imaginary stuff :eek:

                      Nah, just kidding! :biggrin:

                        This sounds like a fine idea to add to the upcoming compilation. Again, I hope to submit something and the extra information outlined here should not be too much of a problem for me. I will stay posted and pass on anything to the relevant people when they are ready.

                          I'm just planning on pasting the image into a 5.25" x 5.25" placeholder frame in a page layout, so size is not necessarily a big deal. However, an image that was optimized as a thumbnail or avatar will probably not look real great when enlarged to the frame size.

                            That would be the "Art of Ambient"? :puke:

                              I will set up a Box.com folder to upload the material to.
                              Edit: As the requirements for having you all upload your items to Box.com is onerous (individual registration with Box would be required) I have elected to use Dropbox instead. Let me know when you are ready to upload and I will PM you a personal upload link. Everyone's items will be stored to their individual folder.
                              Thanks,
                              Windspace

                              P.S.-If I have somehow missed your notice that you are ready, please nag me!
