“Curators” (Used 5 times)

If you've been paying attention to the recently added music to our little website, you've probably noticed a few new curators popping up in the results. One of these noteworthy newcomers is Commune Oreille. Some curators are actual radio stations, but this one is a radio show affiliated with Radio Zinzine.
Commune Oreille is also a collective that organizes live performances in a small town in southern France, Forcalquier. Some of the live recordings found in their curator area are from these concerts.
With a focus on free music and frequent live guests, they're off to a great start. So far, more than 150 songs have been added to FMA by Commune Oreille, and we're looking forward to much more!
Though many curators have an identifiable, genred focus, Commune Oreille's collection spans a variety of musical styles. Angry noise-rockers SEC, twee indie-punks Mega Gem, chiptune composers 1UP Collectif, beatmaster Panda Dub and accordion-fueled post rockers Dure Mere are just a few of the fresh sounds you can explore! To make it a little easier on you, they've put together a playlist of highlights to enjoy, but don't let that stop you from diving in to their full catalog.

I've been a member of the FMA since 2011 and have never so far written a blog post, so I though it about time that I did so.
So this is my kind of "Hello World" blog post, about 5 years too late. It's great to be part of this community and to hear some of the great music on here - I never seem to have enough time to do more of that!
Exposure on the FMA has been good for me in that my music has been used in various media projects and has resulted in some payments via YouTube so that's good. To date I have made two releases here, they are:

I am Jean-Luc, the curator and owner of the Murmure Intemporel netlabel.
This label was created under the moniker Gronde Murmure by John Cobains (an American living in France) at the end of 2010. In 2011, John creates a new netlabel named Sillage Intemporel, curated by a long time friend Jean Dechartres.
Gronde Murmure was mainly specialised in avant-garde musics (acousmatic, post-concrete, electroacoustic) and Sillage Intemporel was more oriented into electronic musics (ambient, electro, abstract electronic). In 2012, John merges the two netlabels in one entity named Murmure Intemporel (the logo was given by Zreen Toyz, one of the main artists of the netlabel).
Sadly, Jean Dechartres passed away in 2015. John and Jean are my friends for over twenty years, so when John ask me to replace Jean, I say yes immediately. At the end of 2015, John decides to retire in USA for living near his children and grandchildren; so I became the new owner of Murmure Intemporel.
Now, I will upload the catalogue of the netlabel (from 2011 to 2015), and the more recent releases (2016) will be notified on the Murmure Intemporel's blog.
Thanks to Cheyenne Hohman who accepted Murmure Intemporel at the Free Music Archive.

Cheers, my FMA pals!
I started here blind as a bat, through the labyrinth of the FMA. The soundwaves have bounced back from the noisy underground and resonated inside my skull, driving the hunger for more. So, here's to finding a favorite artist, album, or track, and seeing one of you there already! I'm so surprised at the uncanny similarities in what we like. It's great seeing all the participation, and networking of members, curators, and artists. I will continue playing phantom DJ through my mixes, and enjoy being a part of this community... much better than the last community... the angry mob that charged my home with pitchforks, finally setting it on fire.
Stay tuned for more!

In our interview with Bad Panda Records hear Claudio's plans for world domination and check out the tunes with which he plans to do it. You can check out more of the "bad" music on their FMA curator page.
You'll also hear some discussion of German football favorites St. Pauli as well as Italian giants Juventus and AS Roma.
If you're a curator that releases music under a remixable CC license and would like to set up an interview, drop us a line here, on facebook or leave us a voicemail at (512) 686-6329.
