works.10

We are planning to release the next album in our “works” series,
“works.10 -Let’s get some work done.-”, at the Spring 2020 M3 event.
Although this is a landmark number, the submission guidelines are the same as usual:

- Must be 120 BPM
- Must be suitable for listening while engaged in tasks involving light labor, such as packaging CDs into boxes
- Must be an original, unreleased piece or a permitted remix (no extended versions of previous releases or tracks submitted to past contests run by Diverse System or other organizations)
- Must be no longer than six minutes in length

Any entries found to have used samples illegally will be immediately disqualified.

Please use previous releases as a reference to the musical atmosphere we are seeking:
works.7
works.8
works.9

Four-on-the-floor rhythm is appreciated but not a strict requirement and will not affect judgment. Also, it is important to maintain an appropriate level of energy, as too much or too little will mean disqualification regardless of quality.

We solely reserve the right to decide selections for the album, although we may request the opinion of other parties.

The above rules also apply to anyone we have approached to contribute to this album.
