Isolated Music Students Unite!


In collaboration with local label Tremorverse Records, Box Hill Institute is inviting music students around the world to upload original works, created during the COVID-19 social distancing lockdown to form a compilation album, Songs from Home.

The world was not expecting to spend 2020 in isolation. The compilation is for new and emerging artists to express themselves. So if you have a track about isolation, a song that you wrote to help get you through, or maybe just something you created as a distraction from reality, Box Hill Institute and Tremorverse want to hear it! 

Record label manager, Merida Sussex said, “Creating and experiencing music is a very human and interactive experience and that has altered. We thought this compilation might be a way to collate and document the creative response to this pandemic from music students. It gives a purpose or a goal where some may have been lost. It is open to all music students across the world and encourages new ways of working and creating together.” 

Set to be released in June 2020, Songs From Home will be available to stream via AWAL on all good streaming platforms and to purchase through Bandcamp. All proceeds will go directly to the student musicians featured on the compilation to provide these emerging artists with a leg-up during this time.

Submissions are now open and musicians have until midnight AEST Friday 22 May to upload their prospective tracks. The tracks can be collaborative, multi-genre, instrumental, traditional or experimental. 

Submissions will need to include:

  • Full name and contact details with a short bio 
  • A short video about the track and what it means for you 
  • A link to your song - a mixed song recorded in high resolution 
  • All the credits for the song
