Hello!

 

I'm a Free Music Archivist based out of WFMU.

 

I host the WFMU radio program Talk's Cheap. I also sometimes host our Radio Free Culture series.

 

I play music in Lame Drivers. In 2005 I made these beats and I'd love for you to use them.

Flashback to 2008

It was 2008. The internet was a cloudland of mp3 blogs. The term “my space” was synonymous with “band website.”

The FMA was under construction. But the collection—a curated library of free and legal mp3’s—was well underway.

We released two preview compilations (v1 + v2) on the Compact Disc format. I still have one copy of each, along with at least a thousand other CD’s, though I no longer own a CD player.

Fortunately, the compilations are archived here on the Free Music Archive, where they’ve reached exponentially more people than the CD’s ever could.

At the time, I wrote: “These are just a few of the thousands of tracks that will be freely available under Creative Commons licenses when the Free Music Archive website launches. All tracks appear courtesy of artists and labels who have benefited from a progressive approach to distribution and intellectual property in the digital era, and we're designing the Free Music Archive to support this approach.”

Now, for the first time, we’re asking for your support. Please donate, and as always, enjoy the music!

Player Piano: The First Digital Music Revolution

Using light to read player piano rolls at MakerFaire Detroit, CC BY Marty McGuire

I made a 2-part Radio Free Culture about the player piano's legacy on music, copyright and digital culture

Part 1 feat David Suisman, Lisa Gitelman and Michael Simon - The transition from sheet music to piano rolls transformed our understanding of copyright. 

Part 2 feat Nick Seaver, Aaron David Ross, Michael Connor and Nick Yulman - The player piano's influence on digital music, including MIDI, Disklavier Super MIDI, Black MIDI, MIDI-powered automata and mechanical pop.

 

Some classic player piano performances have been recorded and compiled by Kazoomzoom for the Frog Legs compilation. Below, enjoy one from Scott Joplin, a Ragtime legend who you can read more about in this feature story by Joe McG.

Hey Jason, This is Sam from Providence, formerly of the Rumrunners. There is an album by myself and someone else that I'd like to archive, '16 Views of the Industrial Trust' which is meant to be a kind of musical panorama of the city ca. 2002. A couple of the tracks can be found at articthirdworld.org How do I go about uploading to FMA? No copyright issues to speak of. Thanks!

a lot of times when i click on a link to the band's website from here, it sends me to some generic page like, wanna meet Jewish singles, need Catch-22 in paperback, trying to cook the perfect omelette? do you think the band just quit paying their website rent or is there some adware or whatever it is called afoot? i mean, obviously i assume that anyone in a band is good with money and responsible enough to keep their website clean and functional, right? just curious. ps - thank you for this website!!! my iPod is fat and glad. you are doing the Lord's work here. the Lord's work i say!!!

Hi Jason, I was reading your article on 'who pays for free' and thought you might be interested in a new site I've been developing with my friend and business partner Will. It's feed-forward.net and we have a name your price model, and take no fees. We are monetized via ad sense, and are trying to spread the word. The core application on the site is actually more interesting we think than the fact that we take no fees even for sales. We encourage high-quality communication on the site, and do so in an innovative way using a unique rewards system that features the work of those artists who give the most high-quality feedback for the work of others'. We also feature visual art, film and soon other disciplines as well. We launched in late November. Please check us out, and let us know what you think. Thanks, -Shoham

I asked about Lucky Dragons CD at Coop Records a while ago and they said it was on back order. That's when I came here and downloaded tons of FREE songs by Lucky Dragons. oomphah lah!

idiotprogrammer
on 03/29/2010 at 11:09PM
Sorry, one other thing. I was in SXSW Interactive a few weeks ago (my 9th year). I went to a panel on online music curators..where no one mentioned Creative Commons or free music; no one had even heard of Jamendo. (I made a point about it during Q&A). Takeaway from that panel: in an age of music curation, there is a real dearth in decent music criticism.
idiotprogrammer
on 03/29/2010 at 11:02PM
A few other things. In a while I'll update my original article with what I've learned about FMA http://www.imaginaryplanet.net/weblogs/idiotprogrammer/special/11-incredible-musicians-you-can-download-for-free-best-of-jamendo/ Second, I am finding it impossible to delete any song from a mix! third, I like how FMA implemented tipjars. (rather than just let artists drop paypal links, Jamendo tried to incorporate it into their business model; as a result, it can take a long time for artists to receive their money.
idiotprogrammer
on 03/29/2010 at 10:57PM
Howdy, Jason, I really like how the social aspects of playlisting of FMA has been implemented. I'm still a huge fan of Jamendo (30,000 albums and counting), but I like how CC music can be uploaded to FMA without needing the artist to do it. (For example, I was gratified to find Vae/Aleksi Torsti already on FMA even though that guy is apparently a real hermit about his own music. I'm really glad to see the Clinical Archives & Netbloc collections. Awesome! (I've listened to 7 Netbloc collections in 1 day!)

Jason said: "Aboombong - Asynchronic is fantastic where to next?" I don't know. Do you need anything more to set up an artist page? As I mentioned, http://aboombong.bandcamp.com/album/asynchronic works for a "buy" link. And you can get artwork from bandcamp or over at Pen & Mallet... Or, were you looking for more music? There is plenty more over at Pen & Mallet. ¡para!helion is probably the most like aboombong, but there is a lot to choose from. Let me know if you want to add any of it over here. Most of it would be fair game, but one or two would require me to clear with other band members. Just drop me a note.

I'm glad to see Iggy back in black. Wish I could say the same about Mick Jagger. Here is a very addictive matias song. A lot of his real minimal stuff is great, but I think instead of making music to listen to while on ____, he seems to make music while on _____, therefore it doesn't always workout as planned. its a very delicate balance, spacemen 3 = grasped that concept rather well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZ7TO2-0ZvM hmmm gorillaz anyone?

M D of FMA at WFMU. I'm curious as to what other two piece bands are sitting around. If you got some and could point me in the right direction it would be grand. Lately I have been up in that chill glo wave of last summer (washed out, neon indian). If they admitted they sampled I would definitely appreciate them more. Tack on b sides of The Kills, some Matias Aguayo, and some rather bland steppenwolf songs
