Compilación "Sloppy Seconds"

Obscurica Records está armando una compilación bastante particular: compuesta solo por temas de 1 segundo; se pretende llenar un cd de 80 minutos, para lo que se requieren contribuciones de 4800 artistas. Si bien parece ser una meta inalcanzable, ya hay mas de mil segundos enviados.
Las reglas, actualizaciones y temas incluídos hasta el momento se encuentran aqui:

Para enviar su segundo, haganlo a obscurica AT gmail DOT com

Dejo las reglas en inglés para quienes quieran leerlas aqui mismo:

I am accepting submissions for a comp entitled "Sloppy Seconds".
Submissions must be exactly one second in length. They may be found sound, original compositions, previously released or unreleased.. anything. They are all being strung together into a massive, A.D.D. inducing, pummeling, roller coaster ride of an audio experience.

What's in a second? A second is a long time. You can get 4 or 5 recognizable ideas across in a second. An average pop song only has 3 or 4 distinct components, at most, so you could easily reduce an entire pop song into a second. The universe was created in less than a second. So what's your excuse?

My goal is to fill an 80 minute CDr in this way. At 60 artists a minute, that would be 4800 separate submissions, with a track marker every minute. I know, I'm aiming for the sky, and it's probably a totally unrealistic goal. You can help by passing the website around to anyone you think might be interested. Any style of music will be accepted. When I deem it's "done", submissions will no longer be accepted and it'll be released in whatever form it takes. There is no timeline for this process, but I suspect it will take awhile.

1. Email your track, wav files preferred, to obscurica@gmail.com.
2. Include your artist name and the name of your track.
3. Tracks must be one second in length, no more no less.
4. One track per artist, please. (Side projects are OK and encouraged, if you want to send more than one track... make up a new artist name :)
5. No artist CD's will be distributed. I'm sure you understand why, just too many of them. Instead, I'll post it as mp3's at archive.org or something. We'll see when the time comes closer.
