Good News for Mixters!

ccMixter is mentioned several times as the place to go to get CC licensed samples and acappellas for Brooklyn Museum’s Who Shot Rock n Roll Remix contest!

Chris Stein, guitarist and founding member of Blondie, has released samples for this contest that are CC-NC-SA and available to the all of the ccMixter community for use. Unfortunately, only U.S. residents can submit remixes to the contest. Don’t let that stop you from doing a mix though! We want to hear them no matter if you enter the contest or not.

Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 to the Present
Organized by the Brooklyn Museum with guest curator Gail Buckland.
October 30, 2009–January 31, 2010

Who Shot Rock & Roll is the first major museum exhibition on rock and roll to put photographers in the foreground, acknowledging their creative and collaborative role in the history of rock music. From its earliest days, rock and roll was captured in photographs that personalized, and frequently eroticized, the musicians, creating a visual identity for the genre. The photographers were handmaidens to the rock-and-roll revolution, and their images communicate the social and cultural transformations that rock has fostered since the1950s.

The exhibition is in six sections: rare and revealing images taken behind the scenes; tender snapshots of young musicians at the beginnings of their careers; exhilarating photographs of live performances that display the energy, passion, style, and sex appeal of the band on stage; powerful images of the crowds and fans that are often evocative of historic paintings; portraits revealing the soul and creativity, rather than the surface and celebrity, of the musicians; and conceptual images and album covers highlighting the collaborative efforts between the image makers and the musicians.
