Hello Wonderful ccMixter Music Makers and Content Creators!

ccMixter’s volunteer admin team is currently in the process of orchestrating our first ever fundraising campaign. Right now, we are making a fundraiser video for IndieGoGo. Help us make the video have a HUGE impact by recording the script below and submitting your promo to be included in the video. Together we can help ccMixter grow!

For the video, as each person says their name and country a pin will show up on a map of the world. At the end, everyone will say “Music Connects Us at ccmixter.org” together. The idea is to visually show how music connects us. We’re trying to get as many people to record the promo as possible to make the biggest impact.

DEADLINE EXTENDED - Please upload by Wednesday, September 10, 2014 to be included in the video.

Here’s a dynamic playlist with everyone’s promo’s so far- http://ccmixter.org/playlis...

Here’s the script:
This is [ccMixter name] from [City, Country]. Music Connects Us at ccMixter.org


Please upload your promo with the ’Submit a Promo’ form and use the suggested tag: music_connects_us

Upload as a 192kbps mp3 and a Flac.

Please keep your promo less than 10 seconds long.

Thank you so much!

Cool! A wav with your mp3 preview is next best. Thank you, Rob.

I can’t record in Flac either Kara. Wav doesn’t seem to be a recognised format. I have only uploaded mp3 but have wav available. It there a free program that allows you to record in flac?

permalink   Kara Square Mon, Sep 8, 2014 @ 7:56 AM
Hmmm… I usually render to flac after recording in Reaper. I know you can do a 60 day trial of Reaper for free. But honestly, the mp3 should be totally fine for this. Thank you!

Hi Kara, I wanted to contribute but I’m really sorry - I can’t speak or sing without having a coughing fit at the moment and it doesn’t look like clearing up before the deadline. Best wishes, Deb

But everyone sounds so great…it is wonderful to hear everyone’s voices and where they are from. I will have a good try to get a recording with no coughing.

Ok….so who is going to accept the challenge of taking all of these and turning it into a choir instrument in Kontakt?

permalink   Jeris Mon, Sep 8, 2014 @ 9:16 AM
Hmmm…I guess this would be the right way to do it: http://www.soniccouture.com...

It would be crazy cool to replicate this with a Creative Commons spirit :)

Next, beat box vst !

i’m curious what people make of this

http://ccmixter.org/files/F...

We’re figuring out the perks for the IndieGoGo fundraiser right now. One of our ideas is to offer our music skills as a perk.

We’re looking for 5 remixers and 5 songwriters (pells/spoken words) who would be into making a remix or pell that would be dedicated to the donor. These would be for high dollar donations. If you’re interested in helping out ccMixter in this way, please message me or snowflake for more details. Thank you!!

Awww… Well, we’ll be doing supplementary videos throughout the campaign. If you’d like to make a promo and/or a recording about why you like ccM, we’ll try to use it in one of the bonus videos. :)

Uuuh. A 10 second recording would be fine. But a longer recording… Puh. I’ll think about it. :)

Big THANKS to My Free Mickey!

If anyone else would like to record a promo, awesome! Even though it won’t be included in the fundraising video, we’re making videos that will be released throughout the campaign and we’ll try to use it in one of those.

Plus, it turns out this has been an absolute blast hearing everyone’s voice! Join us!
