Max pieces: 5

Sub Genres: All / surprise us

The theme for Opus II, Issue I is Presto, a musical direction indicating that an artist play a piece at a rapid tempo, and an English adverb meaning “suddenly, as if by magic.” For our eleventh issue we’re looking for vanishing points, beat drops, bar hops, glow stick raves, impulsive haircuts, disco ball suncatchers, man-made magick, glitter in the shadows, blurred vision, sleight of hand, immaterialism, songs half-lucid and bewitched by the myth of movement. Please only send us work that interprets or embodies this theme, whatever it might mean to you.
