Event History

Mob-Handed Press is now in it's second year, and third issue. Previously, issues have been released in tandem with performance nights at 44AD, Bath, and GOMA, Glasgow. See here for more information: https://www.cyeoh.com/blog/

What Makes this event different?

It is a communication between artist and audience, and an exploration of how people visualise the music that they write, perform, and consume.

Copyright Policy

Artists contributing to the publication retain their copyright. Please note that as this is a songbook, the intention is for the audience to eventually play versions of the songs included for themselves. Artists will be paid an equal share of all profits above the production costs of the zine. There is no entry fee for taking part in 'Creature'

 

Mob-Handed Press is a series of collaborative songbooks created by selected musicians around a central theme. Artists contribute one song each, which are then anthologised into a zine. This publication is launched with a night of performance and storytelling.

Issue Three of Mob-Handed Press will be entitled, 'Creature':

Creatures of habit,
Uncontrollable beasts,
The ones within…
And the ones without.

Participants are invited to submit one song around the theme of ‘Creature’. The selected songs will be anthologised into a printed songbook.

Contributors are encouraged to play with the format of song-writing.

There are no strict rules as to what constitutes a song; only that contributors should be honest about how they visualise their music.

It could be sheet music, a visual score, chords, rough notes, an illustration, a list of words to be read in no particular order… Long, short, personal or impersonal, easy or impossible to perform.

As this is a publication, artists should send their song in a visual format, as opposed to a sound recording.

There will be an event to launch the songbook, taking place in Bath, where contributing artists will be invited to discuss and perform their compositions.

'Creature' will be released in partnership with this year's FAB19 festival, taking place in Bath, UK.

To apply, please see the website: https://www.fringeartsbath.co.uk/exhibitions/#creature

Please note: IT IS FREE TO PARTICIPATE IN 'CREATURE'. Accepted submissions will not incur any fee.
