IASPM-US is issuing an open call for web content. We are eager to have new and interesting material for our website. The organization depends on its membership and the greater music studies community for energy, so please consider contributing to our features!
We currently have three ongoing features:
- IASPM-US Interview Series: Our Interview series features conversations with authors of recently published books on popular music topics. We are always searching for new books and for interviewers to contribute content. Publishers, authors, or potential interviewers should consult our series here.
- Mixtape Series: Mixtapes are phonographic anthologies capable of telling stories through ideas and emotions, coded in the selection and sequence of featured musical selections. The IASPM-US website seeks 30-45 minute-long mixes for our mixtape series. See our series page here.
- First Time I’ve Ever Heard: We’ve all experienced it—that moment when you hear a band or musician for the very first time and everything changes. Sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse, but nothing is quite the same after. We’re asking to hear about the first time you heard something that knocked your musical universe off its axis, even if only for a moment. Check out the series here.
Note that the third series listed is not exactly new, but has not had new content in a number of years. We are resurrecting it and are looking to hear interesting ideas of all sorts. Please contact our editors, Jarek Paul Ervin and Pippin Bongiovanni, with pitches or questions about content.
