Rise From The Ashes: Australian Wildfire Relief


The phoenix hope, can wing her way through the desert skies, and still defying fortune’s spite; revive from ashes and rise. ~Miguel De Cervantes

The devastation of the Australian wildfires will be with us forevermore. There is no way to truly scale it in a way that is comprehensible.  The fires are still burning, and when they subside, the effects will leave scars for longer than our lifetimes. It is in how these scars heal where we have a choice. Part of that healing is through acknowledgement and in expression of what we have experienced.

For this reason, ccMixter has decided to hold a special remix event to honor the need to express and share our stories through song. Rise from the Ashes is inspired by one of our long standing members, Scomber (and his family), who is experiencing first hand the impacts of the Australian bushfires. His song “Ordinary People (Rise from the Ashes)” will lead us in an event that gives hope and healing through music. We all have a story to tell, we are all experiencing some form of Climate Crisis wherever we are on Earth. Scomber invites you to add your voice and talent to our culture and community that shares music and empathy with the world.

"As musicians, we can give voice through song to the underlying causes of these bushfires and the actions needed to prevent them in the future"  states Emily Richards,  "We can use use our talent to raise awareness and lift up spirits out of despair."

CcMixter sends love to all our esteemed Australian artists, including Rob Walker, Debbizo, and Ash Stewart.

In addition, ccMixter artist Sackjo22 has generously offered to donate $1 per uploaded remix for this event to an Australian bushfire nonprofit. Inspired by Sackjo22’s pledge, Snowflake, Jonatha Chance, and Apoxode will do the same. Should anyone else wish to join the team of donors, let us know and we’ll add you to this list.

More details about participating in Rise From The Ashes can be found on the ccmixter forums here.
