ccMixter featured on Music Manumit Podcast!

permalink   Mon, Jul 30, 2012 @ 7:55 AM
I recently spent some time talking with Doug Whitfield and Tom Ray who post the Manumit Podcast every week which focuses on the world of CC music and news! It was an honor to talk about ccMixter, our fabulous community, cc licenses and our mission! Doug and Tom are fierce proponents and supporters of sharing culture, as well as being a couple of charming guys. Their enthusiasm and delight for ccMixter is a treat! In addition to their “talk radio” podcast they do a music podcast, with the latest episode featuring some vintage ccMixter tracks. Hooray for ccMixter!!!!

It was great having you on the show! Looking forward to seeing what is coming up with the hinted at ccmixter changes that I couldn’t get you to tell us about :)

And there will be more music from your suggestions in this upcoming music show that I will be posting this weekend.

Thanks again for talking with us.

I made a video to explain ccMixter with quite disappointing results at

After listening to this interview, I am reminded of classical music introductions I heard as a kid, where each instrument player in the orchestra takes turns playing their piece solo and then adding several parts together until finally you have the whole piece in entirety. The interview cryatallized in me the view that this is the way forward to explain ccMixter and demonstrate the tracking as a form of license protection for contributors. You have inspired me to try again with a more clear goal in mind. Anyone got a suggestion for a worthy track made with four separate artist parts?

Just about every second texasradiofish remix qualifies.

Not perfect, but a little more sensible than my first attempt. Thanks again

Ditto what Kara said. Those guys asked good questions and you had good answers ready (an impressive lack of ums and ers). Thanks for sharing the links and for representing so enthusiastically. Also - something to add to my vocabulary - scare quotes.
