In class today we will be learning the audio editing program Audacity. Here are a few links to online sources for music and other audio that has been licensed for free use via creative commons licenses. The first http://www.jamendo.com/en/ is a site where artists upload their music for free download. The next http://creativecommons.org/audio/ is the audio site of creativecommons.org. It contains a definition of the various licenses here, http://creativecommons.org/about/licenses/ An example of the benefit of release work under such a license is Yoko Ono’s Plastic Ono Band’s decision to offer all of the tracks that make up the song, “The Sun is Down” for remix. This was organized into a competition that allowed others to create original mixes and served as promotion for the band.
