1.  Send an audio file (.aiff or .wav) to the artist:

EMAIL locallytoned@gmail.com with the following information:  your name, address, phone number, email address, sound source and title of proposed tone, and why you would like to share this sound with others as a ringtone. Expect a response from the artist within a week or two.

Audio files will be considered for inclusion in the project based on clarity of audio and the following criteria:

Audio content must be copyright free (i.e., original compositions or audio which exists in the natural world), and tone duration will be 30 seconds or less. Tones are to be shared with others, so content should not be too personal. For example, a recording of someone’s mother on an answering machine saying, “Pick up the phone, Fred, I know you’re home!” won’t work. But, “Pick up the phone, I know you’re home!” could work as a ringtone that many people might wish to own.

2.  If you live in (or are visiting) the greater Los Angeles area, submit a ringtone idea to the artist:

Artist T. Foley seeks individuals and groups as collaborators in designing ringtones for a public art project entitled Locally Toned, a not-for-profit venture that will provide free tones to the community via the project website distribution. Would-be participants only need ideas—the artist provides the technical know-how and equipment. Participants will be selected to collaborate on an original 30-second ringtone based on their submitted idea. Tones may be humorous, serious, ironic, musical, machine-based, or come from nature. Selected applicants will accompany the artist on locale to conduct field recordings that will be turned into a cell phone ringtones. Participants will be photographed for possible inclusion in project  exhibitions and archives. Tones will be made available to the public within a month of the scheduled field recording.

APPLY

EMAIL locallytoned@gmail.com with the following information:  your name, address, phone number, email address, the proposed tone idea, and the location where the audio is to be recorded.

Audio content must be copyright free (i.e., original compositions or audio which exists in the natural world), and tone duration will be 30 seconds or less. Potential audio sources must have a high likelihood for being successfully and safely recorded by the artist. Tones are to be shared with others, so content should not be too personal. For example, a recording of someone’s mother on an answering machine saying, “Pick up the phone, Fred, I know you’re home!” won’t work.  But, “Pick up the phone, I know you’re home!” could work as a ringtone that many Pittsburghers might wish to own. Selected participants will be notified by the artist by email or phone.
