The Freesound Project

Just added this project at the links department > listen > various: The Freesound Project. Their description: "The Freesound Project aims to create a huge collaborative database of audio snippets, samples, recordings, bleeps, ... released under the Creative Commons Sampling Plus License. The Freesound Project provides new and interesting ways of accessing these samples, allowing users to

  • browse the sounds in new ways using keywords, a "sounds-like" type of browsing and more

  • up and download sounds to and from the database, under the same creative commons license

  • interact with fellow sound-artists!

We also aim to create an open database of sounds that can also be used for scientific research. Many audio research institutions have trouble finding correctly licensed audio to test their algorithms. Many have voiced this problem, but so far there hasn't been a solution."
Netwaves for example uses for its jingles (by Akwalek) the sample "Dialup" by Jlew (CC Sampling Plus 1.0 License)



"Checkmate" by pk199: a gorgeous movie made with the 'stop motion technique'.

�streaming on demand� in Belgi� 3.700 keer duurder dan in de VS

De Redactie van Radio Centraal had een gesprek met Greta Van Moer van Sabam over de tarieven die radio's moeten betalen, enerzijds voor de klassieke FM uitzendingen en anderzijds voor de uitzendingen via het internet. Ivm. het internet maakt Sabam een onderscheid bij live uitzendingen in �live streamen�, en in �streaming on demand�. Je kan een uitgebreid verslag lezen bij de blog van de Redactie, en je kan het interview ook herbeluisteren: FM-tarieven en Internet-tarieven

cool recent releases

If you like electro and the indietronic spectre of music, this one's for you: Aquilone with Aeleria [muerte012] on Muertepop.
Listen to this emo-electrical Digitone (CC by-nc-sa).

If you're more into post-rock, guitars, distortion and smoke, you definitely must listen to this weird post-post-rock experiment: Candy Claws with 2 songs on 1 album (Peppermill Records [pm009]), one tune of 17:48, the other is a trip of 12:19, fly on with the overpowered Two Airships (CC by-nc-nd).

The third album is more for people who like lounge, arabica, funky jazz and deserts: Rara with Dune on glam-slam [gls010]. Enjoy the funky Miles And More Stars And Stripes (CC by-nc-nd).

What do these albums have in common: there are no really highlights, but the albums have an overall fine musical quality with a feel of restyling 'old' standards.

C hear s!

expert researcher angry at EC

Bernt Hugenholtz, the director of the Institute for Information Law (IViR) (University of Amsterdam) was asked by the EC to give his advise about the proposal for a term extension of the rights of performing artists and phonogram producers from 50 to 95 years. Now, in its report, "Explanatory Memorandum", the EC fails to mention the 2 studies by Hugenholtz's team. So the latter concludes in an open letter that the EC pays more attention to the lobbyists from the record companies, than to the studies by experts in law and economy.
Read the open letter here (pdf).
The 2 studies here and here.
