We know you love music. We know you love free music.
Freeculture.org is building a library of the best free music the web has to offer. And we need your help.
This will be your music — you are the curators and creators. We want everything: all genres, all time periods, all cultures—as long as it is available under a license for sharing and collaboration.
Our first project is with OLPC, the One Laptop per Child project, also commonly referred to as the $100 Laptop.
- Find your favorite freely-licensed music.
- Upload it here on freemusic.freeculture.org.
- Outline the license this music is being shared with, specifying how others can re-mix and build upon it.
- Watch as your contribution may be shared with the world via the OLPC project!
Do you love some tunes that aren’t freely-licensed? Contact the creators and let them know about this project so that they might participate.
If you are a musician and have music which you’d like to record, we are working with Antenna Alliance, a Boston-based organization that provides free recording and promotion for musicians who release music under free licenses.
Selected songs uploaded to the site will be included in the first music library shipping with laptops from OLPC. The selected songs will reflect a variety of cultural and musical traditions and be made available to millions of children around the world for listening, play, and experimentation. These songs won’t just be made accessible to children, but to everyone via the Web.
