Submissions for Art & Music This Week @sndbox-alpha

Steemians! We are looking for talented artists like yourselves who are wanting the community to see your work, process, and creative mind. We have been inspired and excited about the content that we've been able to find so far from the many talented Steemians on here! We look forward to helping curate many more to come!

Please read below for the general guidelines of our voting criteria.

Until the 14th of February, we are seeking posts in the art and music categories of Steemit. Any of the sub-categories related to this are okay as well.

Keep it Current!

Posts must be within the last 6.5 days (within 7 day rewards window).

Original Material

There's flexibility with this that the original content has to be reasonably original. If there is content from outside sources such as remixes, collages, using others' photos, etc. That is okay. Just make sure that the other content with this is well enough created to hold up as original material.

Talk About It

For text-driven posts, we're looking for 300+ words.

For art and music posts we're looking at minimum of 2 paragraphs of text describing something about the piece. It could be process, inspiration, story behind piece, struggles making it, step-by-step on how to make it, etc.

Under $3

We will be looking for posts that are under $3 or around that amount for maximum impact. We're seeking artists who create high-quality content to distribute votes to.

Wait 24-48 Hours After Submitting

Wait 24-48 hours to see if you've received an upvote. We will be commenting on all posts that we upvote.

Keep Trying!

We will allow one submission per day per profile.

How do I submit my post?

Make sure to read through the criteria above and adjust if needed!

We suggest you post a link to your post in the comments section below with a few sentences describing what your post is. Keep it simple, doing different formatting in the comments, or upvoting your comment to stand out won't raise your potential to be upvoted.

Example of submission comment:


INFO: This post is a story about my band recording a new jazz song last week. It includes some original photos and the recording of the song (unmastered but still cool) is at the end of the post."

Note that we will be upvoting 10 posts per day Monday-Friday at 100% upvote.



Today’s the day to start submitting. This thread is the submission thread for February 5th through February 9th, 2018.

Please follow steps to join the @sndbox-alpha curation trail today!

This is the post describing how to create the original collage painting, using the paper. The photos from the workshop steps by steps, which I was attending and I'm showing my original works.

Sometimes I feel a bit stupid begging for attention. There's something that makes me feel not fully comfortable trying to impress ... If something is valued $0.01, but a group of people, why should we pretend that it's worth more @sndbox-alpha?

Here is an original piece I posted....This song means a lot to me which you will find out about in the post....I love that you guys are trying to help others...I always believe in unity...Hope you enjoy my post

Idea of Music piece : Hello- this track represent the life of a Steemians author. He posts a blog and waits for upvoted or reply from wheals. Hello in the track is symbyse that author has posted a post and Yeah! is upvoted or reation from wheals. And music in between is uncertainty and long wait and some minor reaction from steemians who are not wheals. You will find music piece uplifting inbetween just after upvote (hello)from wheals.
I hope you will like this composition.
Thank you.

INFO: This post is for the steemit nowplaying community. The concept is very simple. The goal is to create a music-sharing community where people share what they are listening to and discover new music from other steemians. The rewards from the post are split evenly among everybody who contributes. The community includes 45 unique accounts so far, but has great potential to grow.

Thanks for this initiative!


INFO: This is an ambient track for a game we have been working on a few years ago.


INFO: A few years ago I was doing a course at a university in Cambridge and regularly travelled by bus between Cambridge and Bedford. I thought it would make for an interesting experiment to capture that journey. Over a couple of days I filmed the journey from both sides of the bus on my iPad. I then used Adobe Premiere to make a short film placing both recordings side by side, and squashed both recordings into a 5-minute time frame. The music was created later using Ableton Live...


INFO: This is my original piano composition entitled "My Frozen Tears" which reflects how it feels to be alone in cold winter.

INFO: This post presents a drawing on a fantasy plant and a wizard girl, and the drawing process.
The seed of the plant is a sedative for dragons; for any other living thing it's a deadly poison.

This is the story behind the inspiration to this piece of art, stemming from a magical childhood memory.

INFO : painting and drawing on wood planks ; weird mechanical construct built from random imagination spikes and diving deeper into its unreal world at each pencil stroke.


INFO: This post is my hand drawing . In my post I have step by step instruction on how I did it.

This is a post of a collaboration between myself and team of artists, and an epic large scale installation builder who built a structure intended to be an effigy burn for a regional burning man event in South Florida called Love Burn -- The structure could not burn due to variables outside of our control, and thus became a long-standing installation for Miami Beach.
