Nab Your Fifteen Seconds of Fame!

At the Free Music Archive, our waveforms come in all shapes and sizes – and we like it that way. We know you're using a lot of our music in your short & feature-length films... but what about the super-short ones you're cranking out? In this age of six-second videos, microblog entries and trending videos of miniature Asian cuisine, we find we’re struggling to keep up when it comes to the musical small stuff. So, for the next few weeks, we’ll be taking entries for the Free Music Archive’s first ever microSong Challenge

Get your tiny instruments together (or oversized ones, or ones that are juuuust right), grab a recording device, and add your itty bitty masterpiece(s) to our collection! Every microSong will be licensed under a Creative Commons Zero license so that it can be freely used by anyone in a video, remix, extraordinarily brief performance art piece, or whatever else they may choose.

So, do you have a few seconds? Help us come up short! Songs can't exceed fifteen (15) seconds in length!

The Challenge begins on January 26th & runs through February 20th. 

SUBMIT YOUR MICROSONG HERE! (login to FMA & click the "Submit" button at the top of the page)
