• AUDIO RECORDINGS (CD or MP3) of you performing 3 works that are representative of your repertoire.

- Tracks must be labeled with the:
Title, Author/Composer, Performer names, and instrumentation.

- Where possible, use samples featuring the lineup with which you are applying.

- MP3 tracks submitted by email are preferred. Submit as attachments to: info@ellensburgcowboygathering.com with the subject line “[name of Artist/Group], SOTW18 Application Audio”.

You may send multiple emails if necessary. Please note that you are doing so in the body of the email.

• A WRITTEN VERSION of the text for the same three selections, with author/composer noted.

• MULTIPLE GENRES: Applicants in multiple genres (e.g. music AND poetry) must provide 3 samples of EACH category.

• RETURNING PERFORMERS if you have performed in at least one of the last three (3) Gatherings, you are not required to send in audio samples this year.
However, it is to your benefit to send in audio samples every year. This way the selection committee hears the tracks picked by you that you think reflect your best and/or most recent work. We cannot keep up with everyone’s latest work so keep in mind that new material might strengthen your application.

Some helpful hints:
• Audio samples sent by email MUST be in MP3 format.
• Works can be written by you or someone else. Please label accordingly.
• Short and succinct recordings are better. Aim for recordings under 3-5 minutes each.
• Make sure your sample represents your application. Solo applications should send solo recordings, not with a full band. Please be clear what you are applying to do.
