Happy Netlabel Day!

Well, it's finally here - the world's very first Netlabel Day! FMA is proud to be a partner in this endeavor to turn people on to new music, labels, and artists! We interviewed Manuel Silva, the organizer, on Radio Free Culture earlier this year about it. One of our FMA volunteers put together a playlist of songs she digs from some participating netlabels that are represented on the Free Music Archive. 

There are a ton of artists and netlabels NOT on FMA, so you should check out their latest releases on the Netlabel Day website!

Still want more to download, stream and share? CerebralRift and Pilot Eleven put together podcasts for the occasion.

Radio Free Culture #54: Premixing the Vitamin Pets

WFMU and the Free Music Archive are proud to bring you a fresh episode of Radio Free Culture, a bi-weekly podcast exploring issues at the intersection of digital culture and the arts. 

In this episode, Cheyenne Hohman, RFC host and current Director of the FMA, spoke to Vito Petruzzelli from the group Vitamin Pets, about their recent "Premix" Contest. The band released 69 stems from their most recent album, "Horse Helpers of the High Country," before the record's release date - with an open call for "premixes," that is - tracks that were produced using the stems before anyone (except the Vitamin Pets themselves) knew what the songs should have sounded like! 

FMA Volunteer Ethan has compiled a few tracks from the premix album, "The Refreshingly Hothouse Porch," as well as from the Vitamin Pets new release, "Horse Helpers of the High Country," so you can listen and compare!

WFMU and the Free Music Archive are proud to bring you a fresh episode of Radio Free Culture, a bi-weekly podcast exploring issues at the intersection of digital culture and the arts. 

In this episode, Cheyenne Hohman, RFC host and current Director of the FMA, spoke to Meik Michalke, one of the organizers of the Open Music Contest, a Creative-Commons fueled music contest that culminates in a concert, rather than the other way around. They're currently getting the word out about the contest and raising funds to bring international acts to their stage later in 2015.

Hi FMA'ers of the musical type!

If you are a musician, remixer, or audio producer, you might have some questions about how to use Creative Commons licenses and works that use them. Have no fear! Eric Steuer and Cheyenne Hohman will guide you through the basics of using CC-licensed work for music. We'll also have time for Q&A after. 

The webinar will be broadcast live on the web, via our YouTube Channel, on Thursday, March 19th at 4 p.m. Eastern. 

Special guest and Creative Commons expert Eric Steuer will be co-hosting with Cheyenne. We'll show you around the Free Music Archive (including where to find license information), run through the basics of Creative Commons licenses and how to use CC tracks in various multimedia contexts, and show you how you can license your work under Creative Commons (spoiler: it's easy!).
