[nwsl001] Netwaves live v.0.1: verslag

De opkomst had wat beter gekund, wat niet van de muziek kan gezegd, die was super. Netwaves live versie 0.1 is een feit, en versie 0.2 is onderweg. Noteer alvast 23 februari voor de volgende editie.



Jan from Netwaves went to Den Haag to meet and talk with Marco Raaphorst, a CC-specialist and much more. It was a very interesting and long conversation. You will be able to hear it in Netwaves on 5 february. By the way, read Marco's blog (in dutch) where he also blogged on the interview.

DIY or die: netlabels liberate music

Found a nice article about netlabels in MetOnline, a student-produced online newspaper (Denver, US).

groetjes uit A'pen

De enthousiaste mensen van het programma Webgang van Radio Centraal - die al voor de 2de maal op bezoek waren in Leuven - bedanken we voor de extra reklame voor onze aktiviteiten.



the new trend ... become a friend!

join the netwaves group @ Last.fm, the new hot spot on the www after an article in the Financial Times. While you're there, you can also subscribe to these other groups dedicated to netlabels.

And don't forget the ugly but inevitable MySpace ;-)



C hear s!

new kid on the blog

Via the CC blog - where netlabelism/netwaves was blogged today :-) - i discovered the existence of ccNeLas.

NeLas started to blog with the same reasons as me: "Since I've been listening to excellent songs published under Creative Commons licenses, I decided to create this music blog and promote these artists. So, ccNeLaS is my personal selection of songs, organized by genres!"
Earlier today, I encountered another interesting project: CCHits, a social website with an interactive chart of Creative Commons music. I tried to add a song (Tape Tum), but i found it a kind of taking too much time. Just try it yourself (membership!) and leave a comment.


Igloo Magazine: Net.Labels

new link added at the 'links/literature' dpt.: it points to an old article in 'Igloo Magazine' about netlabels and with some recommendations by its author, Michael Upton.

views and reviews > thierry massard

new entry added at the 'links - blog' part. Apparently Thierry is a busy bee: more than 100 reviews of netlabel releases in 1 year ...

Marco Raaphorst Interview

Next week Jan from Netwaves will visit Den Haag and talk with Creative Commons-expert and musician Marco Raaphorst. If people have specific questions for Marco, put them in a reaction here, I will take them with me.

The interview will be broadcasted on 29 January or if something comes between, on 5 february.


Sabamvrije haren!

Netwaves 13: Creative Commons and its inventor Lawrence Lessig

In our 13th episode you can listen to an interview with Lawrence Lessig, inventor of the Creative Commons license and founder of creativecommons.org (CC). Netwaves wants to thank Netzpolitik and Staccato Music for the interviews.

You can recognize Creative Commons on the cc-logo that appears at every music/page/software/... that uses CC.


IDMonster-interview: the pictures

In our Netwaves episode 9 "The beauty and the beast", we had an interview with Pendle Poucher aka IDMonster. As a matter of fact, he sent us a beautiful soundscape with birds singing and a dog barking in the background. He sent us some pictures of the landscape and that dog as well.

marvelous new release

Netwaves found yet another fantastic release. It's a debut-record and it's covered at 12rec. I'm talking about Crepusculum. Crepusculum is a young lad who brings guitar-art and calm "chambermusic". Very inspiring and calm music.
Check it out and let us know whether you liked it.


music for submarines

If you're looking for some nice music for your submarine, this might be what you're looking for: Djet with "Submariner Story [ca004]". Unbalanced lounge looked through a periscope perspective. Have a nice sub-weekend.

new netwaves online

New netwaves on line @ IA and @ Radio Scorpio. This episode covers the 'netwaves+scapes=netscapes' gig we did @ het Stuk last friday. Next monday netwaves features an interview with Lawrence Lessig, originally recorded by Staccatomusic.org. Lessig is the "inventor" of Creative Commons and has a very interesting view on everything that has to do with netlabels.

De reacties waren positief, en de 25 CDtjes waren in een mum van tijd 'uitverkocht'.
