I hope you’ve been enjoying listening to Ball of Wax 33. I certainly enjoyed putting it together, and the release show was a blast. But wax never sleeps, and we must soldier on to future volumes. Here’s what we are currently soliciting submissions for:
1) Volume 34: Waltzes! Ball of Wax Volume 34 will consist entirely of songs in 3/4 time (get it?). (6/8 will also be considered, depending on the feel.) Songs don’t really have to be waltzes in any traditional sense, just in 3/4 time.
Deadline: October 27th
2) Volume 37: Songs for kids about animals! Looking way out to next summer, we are undertaking an ambitious project (funded in part by a grant from the wonderful 4Culture) geared toward younger, pre-adult humans, aged 6-12 or so. This will be a book and CD featuring songs about animals and an illustration to accompany each song. (Think good music for smart kids and their parents, not corny, patronizing treacle.) Given all the moving parts here, we need the music well in advance to get everything else done.
Deadline: April 1st
