Spring 2021 Release from Mindful Music Records
Music for Studying
The Mindful Music Association is searching for music for the second MMA album, FOCUS ZONE: MUSIC FOR STUDYING. Up to three songs per artist can be submitted for consideration, but only one song per artist has the potential to be included on the album. The deadline for this submission is February 15th, 2021.
FOCUS ZONE: MUSIC FOR STUDYING will be distributed digitally on all major streaming services, and promoted to radio by Higher Level Media. It may also be promoted to organizations, businesses, schools and other institutions that could benefit from the music. The release date is planned for early May 2021. There is no plan to replicate CD’s but an attractive visual presence (e.g. a web page or brochure) will accompany the digital album. This release will be limited to 20 tracks.
The purpose of this album is to help the listener create a peaceful environment for studying, although it could be used to create a relaxed environment for other situations such as reading, working, or other light activities that require mental focus. The music should be relaxing and focused but could have elements of rhythmic interest. We are not looking just for ambient moods. Instrumentals are preferred but vocals without words are acceptable.
Artists will retain all copyrights of their track and royalties they receive through Performing Rights Organizations. MMA will retain royalties from streaming and downloads of FOCUS ZONE to be used to support the Mindful Music Association.
Submitting for this submission is free, but if one of your tracks is accepted after February 15th, a minimum donation for putting it on the album will be $50 for an MMA member and $100 for a non-member (includes one year of MMA membership). MMA is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. All contributions are tax-deductible.
To submit, fill out the form below and upload one to three tracks in the MP3 format. Tracks are expected to be mixed high-quality recordings. The MMA will be handling final mastering for this project. The deadline is February 15th, 2021. The name and photo associated with your Google account will be recorded when you upload files and submit this form.
