Call for remixes: Snowflake's Earth Day Challenge

Creative Commons and Snowflake are proud to announce a call for remixes in honor of Earth Day 2009. Singer, musician and poet Snowflake has put all the stems, including the a cappella for her song Apologize into the Commons under an Attribution NonCommercial license, hosted on ccMixter, and is looking for remixes to be featured on her site on April 20th.

After all the remixes are posted, Snowflake will pick her favorite remix and include it as a surprise 11th track on her FanClub release “One or Ten” on April 20th. She tells us the remixer will be awarded producer royalties for the track as well.

In addition, Snowflake has generously offered to donate $200 to a green non-profit, to be chosen by the producer of her favorite remix of Apologize.

Snowflake is a long time and popular contributor to ccMixter and thinks “ccMixter embodies a significant evolution in synergistic sound. With creativity expanding from its source, our musical compositions gain color, speed and strength as we share, mix, and mash.”

Make sure to check out Snowflake at her new website that features both her ccMixter source tracks and five favorite remixes.

There’s not a lot time left to crank out the tunes so read more and download the sources at Snowflake’s Earth Day Call for Remixes.

When’s the deadline? Does it have to use the acapella vocals (I like some bits of the rough mix myself)?

Snowflake has said she would like to decide by the 16th but I don’t know how firm that is. I also suspect you could technically do an imstrumental but it is not really in the “spirit” of a call for remixes.

I made my version of this song, but I don’t actually know how to enter it into the contest. Am I missimg something? Where is the submission page? The deadline is upon us!

Thank you. This is the first time I tried to enter a contest on this site. I thought I was overlooking something :-)

I have been so moved by the remixes you’ve created so far. I am inspired. Thank you.

I’d like to extend the deadline to Friday night (April 17), 11:59p PST!!!

Please take the No Plastic Pledge for EarthDay (no plastic bags or bottles)….

Uniquely,

well, I shortened it - I’m just surprised the two were anywhere near each other in FF.

Excellent - I took a break from making music and came back to this remix with only 3 days left! Now I have time for some more finishing touches :D

I doubt I’ll make the deadline but is that Pacific Standard or Daylight time … yea if I do a mix it’ll be that close probably … I’m not necessarily gunning to be an entry, just curious :-).
