Dig The Soundtrack 2017

It's time to create more soundtracks, more instrumentals and more samples for the internets to share, remix and edit.  It's time for Dig the Soundtrack 2017, the remix event that populates our archive with fresh tracks and educates listeners and producers about the in's and out's of CC Music.

As a remixer and as a active member of the CcMixter admin team, I've seen how the music we create in the commons, under cc licenses, permeates the internet in thousands of different ways.  From Vimeo to Youtube to Amazon and iTunes, creative commons music is keeping the beat for artistic productions the world over.  It's doing exactly what the Creative Commons founders's culturally diverse, open for experimentation, and free to share!

Lawrence Lessig, who helped usher in open culture with "Some Rights Reserved" is an impassioned advocate of an open creative culture. "If the Internet teaches us anything, it is that great value comes from leaving core resources in a commons, where they're free for people to build upon as they see fit." I see this in action everyday, when I track attribution for remixes being used in YouTube videos. The archive of #ccmusic at ccmixter alone is being tapped for creative productions thousands of times a day at least. I'm sure the Free Music Archive and Jamendo are seeing the same explosion of requests and uses. It's hard to keep track of it all.

Now more than ever, creative commons music is in demand.  Some Rights Reserved music give video producers options they never would have had before.  Thats what Dig The Soundtrack is all about, creating the music that keeps the internet free, fun, diverse, and wild.  So dig in and share the music!
