The Fourth Annual Mind Culture Original Music project is under way at Frostburg State University. The FSU Department of Mass Communication is looking for bands, solo acts or ensembles with original music who are interested in becoming part of a compilation CD featuring the areas finest musicians. Songs in all forms, from completely produced to ideas on paper, are welcome.
As part of a class offered within the MCOM Department, students solicit original music from local and regional artists, create a compilation CD, and produce and host a live show. This is a great chance for artists to begin building an audience base.
Drew Knippenburg of Today’s Special, who was featured on the Third Annual MCOM CD, said, “Overall it was a really good experience. We were glad to be a part of something that is encouraging and supporting local music.” Other local artists featured on previous CDs include Hanna Bingman, Insipid, Distorted Penguins, Dhru and Erik, White Noise, Stigeley Rueban, Killa Kodiak and Royal Army Recording Company.
For submission of music or for more information or previous volumes of the MCOM CD, contact Connie Capacchione at (301) 687-3049. Submission deadline is April 20 for produced music and April 13 for songs in need of producing. All proceeds from CD sales will benefit the Department of Mass Communication through the FSU Foundation, Inc.
