64 bar goes global with Olympic mix

64 bar music calling on beat-makers from around the world to participate in Olympic sized production project.

With the world’s largest sporting occasion coming up this summer  64 bar music are putting together a soundtrack for the games that reflects the passion of sport and its inherent link with the joy of music.

“We wanted to mark the Olympics with a mix that defined how people were moved by sport, and what the Olympics means to them,” said label head Pete Griffin.

“The music that is made will reflect the feelings we have when we watch sport. It might be joy through victory, or the melancholy taste of defeat.

“There could be the essence of hope in the music, a sense of pride, of determination, or of drive.

The 64 bar music concept began in 2009, and since then, the label has self released seven albums, three EP’s and an album on big-hitting indie label Ninja Tune.

They have released music from artists based in China, Canada, Chilie, The US, Australia, Germany, Belgium, France, the UK and more, and with over 150 countries participating in the games in London and Cardiff this project is their most ambitious yet.

“We’re calling for submissions today,’ said Griffin. “Tunes have to be sent in by the end of the closing ceremony on August 12, 2012.

“There is no restriction on style or tempo, but tracks must be 64 bars in length,” he added.
