Call for Musicians!

Our summer Arts program is back, and this time we’re asking local musicians to come out. If you’re a musician, we invite you to participate in our third Float Creative project. Float three times for free, with the understanding that after the second float you’ll start a project and finish it within one month. We think you’ll be amazed at everything your mind creates when you eliminate the distractions of the outside world.

For more information and to sign up, email us: artists@floatboston.com

Questions! You probably have questions.

Is there a deadline for signing up?  We do have a cap on the number of participants, and we’ll stop the program once we reach our cap OR October 15th 2018, whichever comes first. Sign up now!

Are there requirements for the work itself? Does it have to be ambient or about floating? The only requirement is that the finished piece be a minimum of two and a half minutes long. The style can be whatever you like. (Please keep in mind that if your subject matter is X-rated that we will not be able to use it on social media or otherwise publish it.)

What will happen when I sign up? We’ll get in contact with you to explain the program and make an appointment for an interview. You’ll need to send in your website or SoundCloud for a portfolio review. If it’s a good fit for everyone, we’ll sign the contract and schedule your floats.

What happens if I sign up, but it turns out I can’t float because of my health? Please do let us know – we’ll tear up the contract. We want this project to be a win-win situation for everyone.

How will the artworks be used? When you sign our contract, you’ll grant us royalty-free rights to reproduce the work and use it in promotional and commercial projects. If everything works out, we’ll publish the entire project. We will use the works and related images to promote the artists and floating. You will retain ownership of your work. View a copy of our contract.

Can I participate if I’ve never floated before? Of course! We’ll be delighted to welcome you.

Can I bring along my collaborators? Yes! You will each need to sign your own contract. Please make sure you all make a plan for your second float, clearing your schedule to work together, and getting us a progress file within 24 hours. We think this will be most easily accomplished with a group of three or less. If you have a bigger group, though, let’s talk about it.

Can I participate if I have participated in other programs? Yes! Come on down.
