One of the most enchanting aspects of old holiday songs is the sense of nostalgia they bring. At ccMixter, we have uploads that have been a part of our holiday traditions for decades, if not centuries, and they hold a special place in our hearts. Join us as we continue the tradition of seasonal music remixing.

Soundtracks: Take 1

 



Music is the soundtrack of your life. — Dick Clark

Soundtracks: Take 1


You’re on the set, ready to create the score that gives life to the film. The scene continues from where (and what) we launched with the MixterPlus Dreaming Together event. (read about it here)

Your role: Record and submit original mixes for other creators to use in their videos, movies, vlogs, podcasts, and promotions. The excitement is palpable as the story of new tech and new licensing is developing alongside our vibrant community of collaborative musicians.

Soundtracks: Take 1 is also a continuation of ccMixter’s recent Parallel Paths Secret Mixter because our music community is inspired by collaborative events, and they are the driving force for producing the content that is used all over the internet for media productions.

Why are we so excited about this next scene in our story?

Because there is a whole new level of functionality at MixterPlus we want you to experience. mwic is hard at work building better upload features, tagging systems, track editing ability. If you took part in Dreaming Together, you’ll definitely notice the upgrades.

As an early adopter, you are crucial to the success in developing our new music licensing platform. We want your music and we want your feedback.

And don’t forget to get your ccMixter and Mixter Plus merch. Wear it proudly!

DATES:
We’re focusing on samples and stem packs until Sept. 24 and then remixes until Oct 15 but like all our events, any upload type is always welcome at any time.

Parallel Paths Secret Mixter

 

Parallel Paths Secret Mixter

This event is no longer a secret.... Listen to the mixes here:

Playlist

“Parallel paths often lead to extraordinary destinations.” - Karen Salmansohn


Just like train tracks, ccMixter and Mixter Plus are running along a parallel path supporting the locomotive of remix culture. They function together inseparably, distributing the music we create to listeners and content creators around the world.

This is why we’ve entitled the second Secret Mixter of 2023 “Parallel Paths.”

Parallel Paths celebrates ccMixter’s creative track, tried and true. The Secret Mixter event has reliably arrived with upload days of new and original remixes since 2004. Now, almost twenty years later, we continue on.

And though some of us have taken this journey before, none of us have yet arrived at where we are going. New tracks are being produced as the world of creative expression continues to get crazily more complex. With the changes we’re going through it may seem like this train is the Ozzy Osbourne “Crazy Train” but in reality, it’s a freight train carrying the legacy of remix culture into a new future.

“Sometimes parallel paths can bring people closer than intersecting ones ever could.” - Unknown


New destinations are popping up around us, and we have the experience we need to connect to them. We have a reliable past to draw from as we build into the future. We’ve blazed new paths before and we’re up to the challenge once again.

Together through ccMixter and MixterPlus we roll on. Listen to the whistle of remix culture blowin’ on down the line as we ride the rails of creative collaboration toward a common destination.

Are you new to Secret Mixters? Read this first before you sign up. Otherwise, climb aboard! You don’t need a ticket, just sign up now. This Secret Mixter is about to leave the station!


Event Dates:
Sign up between July 9-July 23
Assignments go out July 23
Upload day is August 6

Check back for the playlist link on August 6th!

So Sha's Talent is A Perfect Fit for Colaboration

ccMixter Loves So Sha, Here's Why:

100 Million Souls is a perfect example of what happens when talent meets talent. Zep Herme's mad production skills are on display in his remix of So Sha's powerful original song 100 MILLION SOULS -- which features her breathy vocals that push us to feel the depth of her intricate relationship with her birthplace, the Philippines. 

Inside Me, a cinematic remix by Ant Survila, also features So Sha on the mic, and her original song INSIDE ME, that has been released on all the major platforms and was featured on BBC Radio. Her acapella has been remixed at least 10 times at ccMixter.

Vocalist/songwriters on ccMixter are the building block of our community, and So Sha has quickly become a foundational artist for producers around the world with her dynamic vocals and emotive lyrics. 

We're looking forward to hearing more from this talented musician. Not only is she a gifted singer/songwriter, she contributes to the ccMixter community in many ways beyond what is expected.  She's a rising star!

So Sha has generously shared her acappellas under Creative Commons licenses so others may interact with her music. Check out her uploads here. Thanks for all you do So Sha!
