A mysterious bear named Podington took the Internet by storm in 2007, releasing three beautifully crafted songs a week. Podington's podcast rubbed shoulders with KEXP's Song of the Day and NPR's All Songs Considered atop the the iTunes charts, while his story captivated Morning Edition, The Globe and Mail, Wired.com's Listening Post, and and dozens of influential music blogs. The experiment inspired countless new works of art, and translated into commercial success over the years with licenses for clients Google, Microsoft, Mtv, NPR, Paul Frank, Chillingo, This American Life, MoMa, Maker Faire, Steelcase, Chevrolet and many more.

The true identity of Podington Bear remained a mystery throughout the entire project. Then, upon the release of a retrospective box set in July 2008 his identity was revealed.  Chad Crouch, proprietor of Portland Oregon's influential HUSH Records, and former bandleader for the group Blanket Music was the big-eared culprit.

Since then, Crouch has continued to record instrumental music as Podington Bear, while significantly broadening his ouevre to include minimalism, neoclassical, ambient, soul, and simply more of what people were attracted to in the first place:  Music that surprises and delights, irrespective of genre.

Crouch released an extensive library of music entitled The Sound Of Picture Production Library for creative pros and amateurs, free to download and free to use under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 License.  (For a commercial license, or clarification of terms please contact podingtonbear@gmail.com)

Dear Artist. I uploaded a video today to YouTube and got a hit for Third Party Content on "Podington Bear - Can I Talk to You?" from a user or tag by the name of "rumblefish". What is up? Does YouTube still flag FMA music or is someone stealing your stuff or is this you and I'm still free to use it?
