Derry’s premier publisher, Guildhall Press, are currently putting the finishing touches a newly-created App version of their widely acclaimed City of Music book for 2012, and have issued a final reminder for local acts to get on board before the project goes live.
The new iPad/iPhone App will soon be free to download from iTunes App store and concentrates on the modern section of the hugely popular 2008 publication - from The Undertones onwards. The aim is to include the creative work of as many industry people as possible who – because of the lack of space – didn’t make it into the printed version of ‘City of Music: Derry’s Musical Heritage’.
If you’re an individual artist, musician, singer, songwriter, DJ, production specialist, band, collective, events promoter/record label, music venue, music festival committee, or indeed anyone with a connection to, or involvement with, Derry music – Guildhall Press want to hear from you.
The project, supported by the Creative Industries Innovation Fund, intends to showcase the very best of Derry’s burgeoning musical talents via interactive and multimedia content. Local acts could see their own biography included, as well as samples of their music, photographs and links to any music videos or websites they have online. All material submitted must have permission granted for digital reproduction.
So if you didn’t make it into the original publication, this is your chance to shine!
