Alter Tempo – New Peruvian CCers
Mia Garlick, August 19th, 2006
In July we celebrated the launch of the Peru version of the Creative Commons licenses. And now, we are thrilled to see the release by the Peruvian duo Alter Tempo of four singles: “Para estar contigo” (To be with you), “Gracias” (Thank you), “Tu voz en el viento” (Your voice in the wind) y “Libre” (Free), which can be streamed and downloaded for free in MP3 format directly from their website under the Paternité – Pas d’Utilisation Commerciale – Pas de Modification 2.5 Peru (BY-NC-ND) license.
Alter Tempo’s music is influenced by a wide range of styles such as Beatles’ styled rock, bolero, trova, jazz, heavy metal, gospel and a variety of latin grooves. The main theme of their songs is everyday love, “a feeling everyone experiences but no one can define with precision” says Roberto, one half of the duo.
Alter Tempo explained their decision to use CC licenses – “Creative Commons is the best way to share your music with freedom along the web but keeping also commercial control of your works.”
