A little christmas present

Hello ccmixters!

The last couple of days I thought what I might do, to give something back to all of you. Since I’m pretty bad at doing creative things I’ll start a “one song per day” mission at january first - based soley on ccmixter songs!

I’m trying to pick a song from the previous day, but there will be certainly a few vacations, so I won’t get a perfect job done, but I’ll give my very best.

ccmixter has become the primary source for music I listen every day and I want to say “thank you” this way. The songs will be featured on http://musik.klarmachen-zum... and hopefully I can create some new believers. :)

Merry christmas to all of you, wherever on this planet you are! And once again: thank you for sharing your music!

Hi Kara,

glad that you like the idea. I wish I could do something more creative, but my creativity is used up with hacking source code and being a good pirate. :)

The campaign article is online now, including the first song: http://musik.klarmachen-zum...

BTW: Just saw, that you entered ccmixter some days before the free! music! contest started. Till now I thaught that it was my effort, that your are hanging around here. :)

Aaaah, now I’m blushing. Without all of you sharing your music, I had nothing to support. :)

Yup. I found out about the free! music! contest from your forum post on ccMixter. I was quite new here at that point and checking out what this place is about…

Wow. Choosing a single song every day is harder than I’d imagined. Not, that there were to few tracks… :) I’m glad, that I do not have to ed pick. ;)

31 days - and every day another artist was featured. Well, artist 31 does have to wait till tomorrow… :)

To celebrate this, I added another feature: Each track will now be added to a playlist, that is directly feed into this player:

Well, the experiment is over. For now. :)

After fixing some issues I had not found before I now proudly present my ccmixter selection 2011: http://musik.klarmachen-zum...

I don’t know yet, if my plan to get more people to ccmixter has worked. The overview has been loaded about 6.000 times. Outgoing clicks to ccmixter: 900 - and there is the FreeMixter included… Incoming from ccmixter: A good 800.

Think I have to find a way to present the Catch of the Day in a more sexy way.

In total I collected more than 26 hours of findest music. Thanks for that!

Thank you for making the effort and sticking with it the whole year, and for no other reason than to make it easier for more people to find more free music.

Pretty cool.
