Terms & Conditions for Anthology Album Submissions
Anthology albums will be made available as a “pay-what-you-want” download via Bandcamp, but no single-track downloads, with a reasonable but low minimum. Anthologies may also be made available other digital distributors, such as iTunes, Amazon and others, for a fixed price TBD, usually by the venue. I may eventually also make available a professionally-produced, physical CD for those who want to have a physical copy. All proceeds will go toward supporting the work of Rigaroga and the Odd Order. Contributors to an anthology will be given a code for a free download of their anthology issue.
Artists agree to release their track non-exclusively on the anthology album, selected from tracks submitted to the library. All submitted tracks for this project should be in high quality, lossless format. Contact John “Rigaroga” Bell for information and arrangements about how to upload submissions, but there are a number of ways to transfer large files. Specifically, acceptable audio files will be as follows, with a preference for 24-bit stereo WAV format:
• lossless WAV, AIFF and FLAC format
• 16 and 24-bit samples
• 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 and 192kHz sample rates
• stereo and mono
Information about each artist will be featured in posts to the Hermetic Library blog and in a dedicated section of the Odd Order website for the Anthology project. When submitting tracks for this anthology, each artist can provide biographical information, profile image, liner notes for the track (including information on whether this track was created exclusively for this anthology), and links (such as to their primary website, label site, and social media accounts). Artists in turn agree to promote this benefit album through their existing network of newsletters, websites, social networks, and other means available.
Artists will retain all rights to their work other than as part of an anthology issue, which will be made available with “all rights reserved.” Artists grant a limited license to sell their work on an anthology with all proceeds going to Rigaroga and the Odd Order. Artists retain all writer credits. Submitting a track will constitute a release licensing 100% of the master recording, publishing, name & likeness and other related rights to the track for the purpose of an anthology benefit album, with indemnification for the project and assigning all revenue generated by the sale of the album to the library. Artist agrees to enter into a release on the above terms and conditions upon request. Artist is responsible for registering their work for performance royalties (if applicable).
