Submissions welcomed for NWA Compilation #15 – Regional, Rural & Remote

Posted on Aug 20, 2013

Well into its fourth year of promoting and furthering new eclectic and experimental sounds from the Australian continent, New Weird Australia are excited to put the call out for the newest edition in our digital compilation series.

The fifteenth compilation in this series seeks to showcase the myriad of innovative regional and rural sound makers in Australia. The regional cities, rural centres, and remote outposts in Australia have a barely tapped wealth of eclectic and experimental music, and New Weird Australia seek to highlight works that exist outside our capital city centres.

This volume of New Weird Australia’s ongoing compilation series is being compiled by New Weird Australia’s Innez Tulloch in association with co-Directors Stuart Buchanan and Andrew Tuttle. For those uninitiated with the endlessly divergent approaches that geography and sound can create our Western Schism compilation is a prime example.

We’re looking for submissions that fit into the broader New Weird Australia aesthetic – new, eclectic and experimental work that confounds and confronts expectations of what Australian music and sound based works could or should be.


Your submission should include the following:

(a) a WAV or AIFF file of your recording

(b) a Word or text file including

• RELEASE DETAILS [name of release & label the track comes from / OR Previously Unreleased]
• LINKS [URLs for your main web presence – your own site, Facebook, Bandcamp etc]

(c) a JPEG image (no less than 600 pixels wide, 72dpi)


(a) zip all inclusions in a folder, upload to any file sharing service and email the link to music at with the subject “Compilation 15″

(b) upload to Soundcloud, ensuring that you enable for private download to our account: newweirdaustralia. Also ensure that you note that it is a submission for Compilation 15. Email additional text and images to music at with the subject “Compilation 15″.

(c) send a disc to Compilation 15, New Weird Australia, PO Box 67, Strawberry Hills, NSW 2012. Email additional text and images to music at with the subject “Compilation 15″.

Closing date for submissions is Monday 16th September 2013. Rare, exclusive or unreleased material is preferred, but not essential.

    I am looking forward to this release. I run an online art magazine (we include video and sound work) and out theme was also remote – There were a few really interesting sound submissions – the remote issue will be out in October.

    Do you have an artist for the cover work? I recently came back from Iceland and have made a lot of imagery from that time.
