"Under The Tree" Remix Event

Courtesy of ccMixter

The holidays are upon us! Whether you celebrate with Thanksgiving feasts, lighting the menorah, holiday parties, Christmas trees, or anything around and in between, it is the perfect time of year to express gratitude, seasonal tidings, and make some noise. It's the season of giving - so share your finest original and traditional, holiday and seasonal pells (a capella/isolated vocals), samples, and remixes. We would like to encourage you to record traditional public domain Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Winter Solstice songs, as these are very popular with both listeners and remixers.

We are honored to be collaborating with ccMixter, Jamendo, and Plotist in this year’s Under The Tree remix event. Together, we are giving the gift of music to the world.


Dates: November 12th-January 2nd
Who: CCMixter, Jamendo, Free Music Archive, Plotist
Where: & CC BY-NC-SA source materials right here on FMA!
What: Holiday Remix event produced under Creative Commons licenses. Artists upload vocals (pells) or samples (short sounds or individual instrument tracks) for the remix community to produce music that listeners can download and share. A selection of songs will be curated into a compilation.

Got an audio sample, instrumental track, or isolated vocal to share for this holiday season?

Hey Cheyenne, welcome! I'm a WKU alum, had a show on WWHR Aron's ago (before it was FM) and was in a local BG band that got played on it. So, lots of love for KY and the BG scene. So glad you're on board the mighty FMA. specksnyder
