As you might know, we are big believers in sharing the fruits of our artistic labors with other musicians so they can create derivative works. That's why we release a lot of our music through the Creative Commons
Non-Commercial Share-Alike Attribution license
. That lets other people use our music to create new songs, etc. (Naturally, it's only free if they don't use it commercially ... if they're going to make money on it, we want to negotiate a little cut for the gas fund
Recently we found a bunch of cool remixes on the site CCMixter.net
, which hosts lots of great Creative Commons music for just such a purpose. Through Magnatune
, we provided the source tracks from one track on our first studio album, Lefty's Alone
, and there have been a bunch great remixes
that people have used our music in.
Thanks to LeFou
for the tip.
