This page will serve as a hub to organize compilations/group projects among artists affiliated with Brainstream. If you wish to participate in any of these, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. When the track is complete, send us the .wav file at the same email address and this page will be updated listing your finished song. Compilations will be available for free, and any proceeds from the optional payment will be put directly into Brainstream advertisement. In the interest of simplicity, artists will not receive proceeds directly from compilations, so understand that you are in effect donating the song to Brainstream - however, the goal in compilations is to increase an artist's exposure while also offering long-time fans new material, and naturally compilations will include links to the pages of every artist involved. There are no strict deadlines - a compilation will be released when it feels complete, but as a rule of thumb it should be expected that a compilation is released within a year of its being started. The idea of compilations on Brainstream is for everyone to provide new content, so previously created songs may only be submitted if they have never been released.
Current Project - Alien Radio
PROJECTED RELEASE: SPRING/SUMMER 2016
-- NAME SUBJECT TO CHANGE / CONCEPT ARTWORK ONLY --
To contrast the softer and more comforting feeling of SOAR, the new compilation ALIEN RADIO asks
you to imagine what music would sound like on another planet. Weird time signatures, polyrythms, syncopation, and otherwise "alien" sounds are encouraged! Conversely, if your interpretation would be more in-line with conventional music here on Earth, that's good too! As always we encourage you to take this theme in whatever direction you see fit. However, for the sake of the theme, if there are "lyrics", they must not use any existing language.
