Do you play Live Electronic Music? Can I interview you for a book?

Hi,

Thanks for having a read. I am Jason Prine - an avid Live PA artist on a quest to tell the story of Live PA in book form..

I’m a big fan of anthologies that contain interviews of artists who all partake in a specific craft; e.g. directors, writers, photographers,
songwriters. And as I have a passion for Live PA and Electronic music, I thought that this would be an interesting project to cover. I know there’s
a community of both artists and fans alike who would be interested in this type of insight, both newbies and seasoned folks, hobbyists and
professionals alike. Hence this post. I'm looking for Live PA artists who wish to be profiled in a book titled "I am not a DJ. This is Live PA."

For me the objective of this book is to provide an outlet for Live PA artists to share our knowledge and views with a larger audience. I am not
focused on any one genre, simply the concept of playing live Electronic music. The book isn’t strictly about the knobs and dials of your setup,
which we will definitely cover, but I want to get into points about creativity, your underlying methodology, influences, and the future of Live PA.

Now I’m not looking for big names for this book. I’m looking for artists who are local / indie / regional / hobbyists who have had less exposure and potentially more interesting / wacky setups and methodologies for playing live Electronic music. Let’s face it, there are tons of music magazines out there that cover the gamut of the big names and that’s not what I’m after here. I’m looking more towards local / grass roots / people who play live for the pleasure of playing live.

In terms of timing, I know folks are super busy, but if you can spend any time on this between now and April 2013, you should consider being a part of the project.

In return for being a subject in the book, I’ll prominently feature a photo of you / your act, your bio and any prominent links you want to push in your chapter of the book, along with some photos. I’ll also make sure to send you a draft of your chapter so you can provide feedback. Finally, I’ll send you a final version of the eBook in either PDF, MOBI, or EPUB (or all three).

I plan on this initially being an Amazon Kindle only release so that it is available to folks for free through the Amazon lending library if they
have an Amazon Prime membership. I’m also setting it up to be available in physical form through CreateSpace (it will be black and white 6x9). Once the Amazon time limits expire, I’ll push it out to iTunes, Kobo, etc.

Please email me @ prinejason@gmail,.com if you are interested and we'll go from there.

Cheers,

Jason Prine
