Public Muse ExposeYourMuse, a division of Public Muse Group, will again be producing a compilation CDs of original music. Their goal is to showcase original music only from artists worldwide. The CDs will be showcased and distributed at an important exhibition held in Cannes of France, in front of hundreds of distributors, record companies, publishers, media agents, radio stations and other professionals during January of 2009.

CDs will not be sold in any way, so there is no compensation for sales or publishing. Participants and artists will receive their copies by March 15th of 2009. All submissions will receive a review even if not selected for the compilation. In addition selected artists for the Audio CD compilations will receive ten copies of the CD and artists for the CD-ROM compilation three copies per song (meaning that artists with three songs will get nine CDs) for their own use.

This year, ExposeYourMuse will also produce a compilation CD-ROM of original music of artists with MP3 versions of their songs, and audio CD's with original music. Submissions are open to a variety of genres including: rock, alternative rock, acoustic rock, pop, dance/electronica/DJ, world, reggae, metal and hip hop, singer/songwriter, instrumental etc.

Selected artists will be divided in three categories:

  1. Artists will NOT pay any fee to participate on the compilation CD-ROM with MP3 versions of their original songs If the artist agrees to sign a publishing deal through Public Muse Publishing, a division of Public Muse Group, for the selected songs only. Public Muse Publishing will pay as an advance for any future publishing royalties income, the fee for the above selected artists for their songs in the compilation CD, to the Public Muse ExposeYourMuse division.

  2. Artists may choose to participate on the CD-ROM and thus will be asked to pay a $49 non-refundable fee per song with a maximum of three songs per artist. All publishing rights will be retained by the artist/author. Three CD-ROM copies will be sent to the artist on a per song basis, so an artist participating with three songs will get nine CD copies. There will be a $5 fee added for shipping expense if the artist will participate with one song. There are several spots reserved for Sonicbids artists to be selected for the CD-ROM at no additional charge.

  3. At least two Sonicbids artists will be selected for the audio compilation CD at no additional cost. All additional artists that choose to participate on the audio CD instead of the CD-ROM will be asked to pay a non-refundable fee of $159 per song. With this fee artists will also get ten copies of the compilation CD and the postage fee will be included too. If the artist would like to participate with more than one song in the audio CD then there will be a 15% discount for the additional song(s).
