Update #26

Musopen and Prague Symphony to deliver massive amount of free music

Comment

Congratulations are in order for Aaron Dunn and Musopen for the upcoming completion of their spectacular Kickstarter project to create a lot of free (as in CC0 - public domain) recorded music. In many ways their project, which preceded the Open Goldberg Variations, is our kindred spirit, and we're fighting the same battle - to expand the public domain and unlock access to the cultural treasures of classical music.

Coincidentally, the Prague Symphony Orchestra will be taking to the studios on exactly the same days that Kimiko Ishizaka will be in Berlin recording the Goldberg Variations - starting this coming Monday (January 9th). 

As it was with the Open Goldberg Variations project, Musopen and Aaron's Kickstarter project are getting a lot of support from the Free and Open Source Software world. This is no surprise, as people who are familiar with FOSS software models of licensing and collaboration are well aware of the value of the Commons, and how important licensing can be to making the Commons grow.

2012 is going to be a great year for fan-funded classical music. Next updates will be live from the Teldex Studio - stay tuned!
