30 years ago, in 1984, Steve Roach released Structures From Silence, a collection of music that completely altered my perceptions of what music could be. It was the blueprint of a musical world that I am still living in (and constructing) today.

To coincide with this anniversary and to give tribute to the creativity and vision of Steve, Free Floating will be releasing a compilation of music that is inspired by the blueprint of SFS. I am inviting you to be a part of this celebration and to submit music for inclusion on this collection (which, serendipitously, will be Free Floating’s 30th release).

Consistent with Free Floating, the compilation will be released as a free download under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC-ND 3.0) License. You will continue to own the copyright to your work.

To be considered for inclusion, your track should:

  • be an original composition of approximately 6-10 minutes in length;

  • fit in with the spirit of Free Floating music and Structures From Silence (peaceful, meditative, beatless ambient music);

  • be a newly released track, not previously available to the public for streaming or download.

If you are interested, please send an email by July 1, 2014 to quietfriends@freefloatingmusic.com with the following:

  • Your name;

  • The name of the artist or performer (if different than your own name);

  • The title of the track being submitted;

  • A preferred email address for contacting you;

  • A link to download the file in wav or flac format;

I will email you to let you know that I have received the submission and will contact you later to let you know whether or not the track is selected for inclusion in the project.
