DEAF Double CD 2008
In anticipation of this year’s festival on October Bank Holiday weekend 2008, DEAF is proud to present the second in our series of compilation CDs.
A definitive sampler of the very best in experimental electronic music produced by Irish-based artists today, this joint initiative between Culture Ireland and DEAF features contributions from established names and newcomers alike, including Nurse With Wound, David Donohoe, Roger Doyle, Rollers/Sparkers, 16Hz, Legion of Two, Karl Him and Fovea Hex - alongside many others.
With over 500 submissions, we were delighted to find ourselves spoiled for choice when it came to making a final selection. The 35 pieces offered here range from spoken-word/soundtrack works to the latest in home-grown dubstep, techno and acoustic/electronic hybrids, with the evident quality overall testifying to the increasing maturity of Irish-based artists, and suggesting a confidence and breadth of vision that promises many exciting new developments in the near future.
The limited edition cds will be available free inside this years DEAF printed programme which will be available initially at the DEAF launch party on Fri 3rd Oct at the Sugar Club, then afterwards in selected record shops around the city such as Tower Records on Wicklow St, Road Records on Fade Street, City Discs - the Granary in Temple Bar & Spindizzy in Georges St Arcade. For launch invites email email@example.com to be added to the mailing list.

DEAF Music 2008 CD Music Callout - MAY 2008
DEAF returns once again in 2008, with a stellar line-up of local and international talent set to perform across the city over the October Bank Holiday weekend.
While Dublin’s more experimental club nights have undoubtedly struggled somewhat in recent years, there’s been a notable increase in the quality of the productions emerging from the studios of Irish producers. Thus for 2008, we’re putting together a 32-track double CD intended to showcase the best in new electronic music from Irish-based artists.
The CD will be inserted into our print programme and distributed free at the press launch for the festival in September 2008, which is set to take place at the Sugar Club in Dublin. We’ll also be promoting it to the Irish and international press as part of our marketing campaign for this year’s festival, and all tracks selected will be made available for free download from www.deafireland.com during the run-up to festival week.
We want this compilation to represent the best of what’s out there right now, and we hope to feature work contributed by both established names and relative unknowns. Any style or genre of electronic music can be submitted, but tracks cannot be longer than 4 minutes (edits of longer pre-existing pieces are acceptable). Only one track can be submitted per artist name; however, you may submit any number of tracks as long as each is credited to a different pseudonym.
If your music is selected for inclusion, we’ll require you to provide a high resolution photograph (representing the artist), along with a brief biography for use in our promotional material.
Entries can be submitted by post [on CD] or via download links.
All CDs should be posted to the address below. The closing date for submissions is Monday July 14th 2008.
DEAF Music 2008
68 Dame Street
All download links should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with DEAF 2008 CD Music in the subject line.
Please note this is a compilation of Irish based artists only. We’re looking forward to listening through all the entries!!
