Free Music Archive

Karpaty Magiczne w WFMU, fot. Scott WilliamsZ USA nadeszły bardzo dobre wiadomości: nasze koncertowe nagranie dla słynnej nowojorskiej stacji radiowej WFMU zostało opublikowane w serwisie Free Music Archive – można zupełnie za darmo i legalnie sobie je ściągnać i / lub posłuchać.

Jak piszą twórcy serwisu:

“The Free Music Archive is an interactive library of high-quality, legal audio downloads.  The Free Music Archive is being directed by WFMU, the most renowned freeform radio station in America.  Radio has always offered the public free access to new music. The Free Music Archive is a continuation of that purpose, designed for the age of the internet.

Every mp3 you discover on The Free Music Archive is pre-cleared for certain types of uses that would otherwise be prohibited by outdated copyright law.  Are you a podcaster looking for pod-safe audio? A radio or video producer searching for instrumental bed music that won’t put your audience to sleep?  A remix artist looking for pre-cleared samples? Or are you simply looking for some new sounds to add to your next playlist?  The Free Music Archive is a resource for all that and more, and unlike other websites, all of the audio has been hand-picked by established audio curators.

The Free Music Archive is a platform for collaboration between WFMU and a group of fellow curators, including KEXP, dublab, KBOO, ISSUE Project Room, and CASH Music. The site combines the curatorial approach that these organizations have played for the last few decades, with the community generated approach of many current online music sites.

Inspired by Creative Commons and the open source software movement, the FMA provides a legal and technological framework for curators, artists, and listeners to harness the potential of music sharing. Every artist page will have a bio and links to the artists’ home page for users to learn more about the music they discover via the Free Music Archive.”

Bardzo się cieszymy, że możemy być częścią tego przedsięwzięcia i w niewielkim choćby stopniu przyczynić się do idei upowszechniania Wolnej Kultury. Sprzedaż płyt jest dla nas – jako muzyków niezależnych (nie mylić z “offowymi”🙂 – ważnym źródłem wsparcia projektów, które realizujemy, ale nie uważamy, żeby ściąganie muzyki ją zabijało. Ufamy naszym odbiorcom i wierzymy, że czasem jakąś płytę jednak kupią, choćby po to, żeby to wszystko się kręciło…
