DEAF (Dublin Electronic Arts Festival) returns once again in 2009, with a line-up of local and international talent set to perform across the city over the last ten days of October. For 2009 the festival, in association with Culture Ireland, is putting together a 32-track double CD intended to showcase the best in new electronic music from Irish-based artists. The CD will be distributed free at the press launch for the festival in September 2009, which is set to take place at the Sugar Club in Dublin. It will also be handed out free of charge at select DEAF events over the course of this years festival.
Artists are invited to enter new music for inclusion on the CD. Any style or genre of electronic music can be submitted, but tracks cannot be longer than 4 minutes (edits of longer pre-existing pieces are acceptable).

Entries can be submitted by post [on CD] or via download links.
