The samples (attribution non-commercial) and rules for the new Christopher Willits remix contest are online. Christopher is a real virtuoso on guitar but also getting great subtle atmospheric tones and harmonies from orchestral instruments and synths.

Thanks for the contest! It’s a great song. I love the stuff Ghostly puts out.

Is it ok to use Freesound stuff, even though they are neither CC BY nor CC BY-NC?

fs is in the process of moving their library over to those licenses but until they physically do that the safe thing to do is fire off an email to the person you sampled.

No. 10 of the official rules seems strange: “Requests for winners list must be received by June 6, 2006.”

“Christopher Willits will select his favorite remix…”

“The nine winning remixes will be determined by the highest scores…”

“…to be included in an XLR8R INCITE CD, which the Sponsors will provide to the winner and runner-up shortly after notification.”

Sorry, I’m a little confused here. :) How many winners will there be, and if there’s more than one, what will they win?

I think that’s a typo, I think there is only one winner.

Ya, there’s a few typos.

“Requests for winners list must be received by June 6, 2006.”

That day passed 6 months ago…

that explains it then, sounds like fort minor was used as a template
