About ABLAZE Records

ABLAZE Records is a new Australian/USA company that issues recordings worldwide on iTunes

and  through Amazon.com and through NAXOS of AMERICA on the Naxos Music  Library. Hard copy distribution is through ALBANY MUSIC DISTRIBUTORS and  SuperD OneStop. The focus of the company is on new music composition  and classical music performance.

About the Series

This competition aims to discover works of composers that have already been recorded but not yet mastered to a full and commercially released CD. Many musicians have performances of certain  works recorded which they would be happy to release but may not have  enough material to issue a full CD. Still other musicians may not be  inclined or disposed to do the ‘business’ side of getting their work out  to the public and distributed world wide. It is with the thought of  assisting such composers that ABLAZE has issued its call for Master  Tapes. Once we compile a range of recordings ABLAZE records will:

  • Have the disc professionally mastered
  • Have the disc meticulously replicated (rather than duplicated)
  • Design the artwork and digital booklet
  • Compile liner notes for the accompanying booklet
  • Obtain all clearances and copyrights
  • Complete all contracts with participants (who all retain full ownership of their work)
  • Manufacture the disc run
  • Distribute hard copies to Albany Music Distributors and Amazon.com
  • Distribute digital masters to Naxos Music Library, iTunes, Amazon MP3 and other digital outlets
  • Promote, advertise and seek reviews of the release

This competition is for studio or very high quality live recordings of performances of original compositions.  ABLAZE will extend to all winners a partially subsidized recording.  This means that our usual costs for final recorded music will be  subsidized by ABLAZE so that we can offer to the winners a place on this  disc at a fraction of usual costs. This is ABLAZE’s commitment to new  music and we are very excited to hear your submissions. The subsidized  costs to all participants are to cover the expenses of the above  services such that we can ensure the highest quality product to those  who have entrusted their music to us.
