There are too few nonprofit organizations like CC fighting for the digital commons – support our vital leadership with an end of year contribution. Donate today!
CC staff favorite and Magnatune artist, Brad Sucks recently started releasing the source to his most popular song, Making Me Nervous, and asking folks to contribute remixes. Like the Jim’s Big Ego remix project we’re got going on here (which can get your remix onto national radio), Brad’s now got six remixes (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) and someone making a video for the original.
It’s pretty cool when artists open up the process to their fans, and let creativity flourish. Heck, even a commercial success like Jay-Z can see there’s money to be made in providing remixes that provide eventual benefit to both remixers and the original artists.Posted 27 May 2004
