Music for Freedom : Make your voice heard

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

Artists for Freedom

Music for Freedom is a project by the Artists for Freedom network, a network of artists around the globe, gathered around the Human Rights and Freedom of Speech Issues.

Founded in July 2009 this project has already caught the attention of Dj Spooky that gave an unreleased track “Azadi (The new complexity)” to the project for free distribution under a Creative Commons License.

One of the projects that we have now is active in 2 fronts, and this is where we would like the FOEM community to get involved.

1. People record the word “Freedom” in their native language (and whatever language they might know) and send it to the project.

Our objective with this is to make, for the first time ever, one CD-lenght release of people just saying the word “Freedom”. This track, like all the material will be released under a CC License 3.0 by-nc-sa.

When submitting the recording please use the following naming specifications: (example: Florian_DE_German.wav) ;-)

2. We are asking musicians to download the already available voice samples and with them, make new tracks.

The tracks submitted will then be featured at the Music for Freedom website.

|| Submission Guidelines ||

1. You have to use at least one of the vocal tracks that say “Freedom” on your track but you can record your own.

1.1. If you record your own please attached it independently with the submission following the naming convention detailed above.

2. You should upload your track to Soundcloud and submit it to the Music for Freedom Group.

3.1 Send us a zip file with your bio, contact information and photo to foemtracks [at] artists4freedom [dot] net

To participate you must agree to submit your track under a Creative Commons License 3.0 by-nc-nd. Please include that on your mail to us.

Submissions that fail to respect these guidelines will not be made available on the website.

What do you get from submitting your tracks to Music for Freedom?

First of all, awareness and presence within a new audience.

The chance to be invited play or Dj on  the multiple rallies organized all over the world that deal with Human Rights and Freedom of Speech issues.

Most important, to us and we hope  for you as well, you will be making a statement that your voice counts and you want it to be heard when it comes to the injustices that some people, that are just like us, have to suffer.

We look forward to receive your material! Please spread the word.

If you have any questions please contact us here on the Forum or at info [at] artists4freedom [dot] net

PS: We would like to publicly thank Florian for all the support. You rock man!

[RRR134] Western Homes – Are Empty

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

Western Homes - Are Empty

This short album ranges from catchy indietronic songs, which blend fuzzy synth with soft open acoustic guitar chords and electronic beats, to more experimental feedback loops and noise. The sound on this album has been described as “water dripping slowly over antique furniture in a flood” and this unique sound is quite evident on songs such “hospital corridors” and “ice sheet on my bed”. It is at times infectiously melodic and at other times soothingly ambient.

Vocals often fading into the ethereal mist, the listener maybe catching a bit of the story being told, but more often than not these tracks are wide open for interpretation. Meaning that every listen you will get something more from this. Musically there are so many influences that seem to jump out, upon listening to “2009 (A Merman I Will Become In Time), I can personally hear the likes of Mates of State, and Tunng colliding together in pure bliss. On other tracks, the likes of Beirut or Final Fantasy jump out.

One thing is for sure, this is a solid mini album that is bound to become an instant fave.

“Deep, subtle, mental, techy, melancholic, Dark. Cosmopolitan capitol city, rush, highways, clubs, restaurants. Rain, sun, open skies, high clouds. Street dancers, fast minds, green lights, clowns, skaters. Cat faces, dog attitudes, finest smiles… No more than feelings and experiences, no sponsorship banners, no sky flyers, painted walls.”

Both artists Gare Mat K and Alex Young are ace Dj’s and Producers. Gare’s ‘Comunicacion’ 2XCD mix reaches # 2 popularity in America, and Alex was ranked # 1 as the best Minimal artist of the year “These two CDs are a snapshot of what’s setting our pulses racing at the moment; a selected stuff from lovely labels and tracks as the ones of BPitch Control and Gaiser’s remix of “Worst Think In The World” Telefon Tel Aviv, Radio With Music and Chris Cargo’s “TImeshifter” intro, Full Scale Music and Frank Bojert’s Original and Kevin Over “Zerra” mixes, Progrezo Records and Alex Young’s Techdriver mix of “Who’s Gonna Drive” Gare Mat K feat dTolio, Inkfish recordings and Darin Epsilon’s Mimoori “Kwaidan”, Nosi Music and Mickey Franco’s “Botoneta”, Anatolian Beats and Tom Pook’s “Huge”, Dial Tone and Sergio Sorrentino’s mix of Nasty Boy “Trash & Easy”, Vise Versa and Grunjah’s “Plus”, Kraft Music and Reix’s “Flesh”, Carica Deep with StereoK’s feat Royal Sapien “Digital Kills The Vinyl Star” and exceptional Bs As deep remix of Anthony’s Pappa “Outback” track, blurring of the boundaries from between minimal, new techno, tech house and next level bleep-driven rave,” says Gare and Alex.

Their mix is a special music set, that show out years of constant work and evolution into different atmospheres and tendencies, inside of electronic music and arts. It’s not about minimal, it’s not about techno, it’s not about progressive or melodic stuff’s, it’s not about house……it’s not about chunky words, it’s about people, it’s about heart, it’s about spirit…..It’s all about their lives, it is just music.

“Life are years of mental photo shoots.” Gare & Alex
