    It’s not what’s under the Christmas tree that matters, it’s who’s around it. 
    ~Charlie Brown
     
    The holidays are upon us! Whether you celebrate with Thanksgiving feasts, lighting the menorah, holiday parties, Christmas trees, or anything around and in between, feelings of nostalgia make it the perfect time of year to express gratitude. 
     
    While some stack gifts under the tree this time of year, others find themselves under the trees on refreshing winter walks.
     
    You are cordially invited to share original and traditional (public domain), holiday and seasonal pells, samples, and remixes. We would like to encourage you to record traditional public domain Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Winter Solstice songs, as these are very popular with both listeners and content creators.
     
    We are joined by these amazing organizations in the creation of this music:

  • Free Halloween Music, Ghost Notes Remix Event

    Posted Oct. 4, 2017 at 10:19 a.m. to ccMixter Listening Lounge Public | Comment

    “During the day, I don’t believe in ghosts. At night, I’m a little more open-minded.” ~Unknown


    Deep in the vaults of ccMixter lurk hundreds of Halloween songs that will add a certain, shall we say, rotting addition to your scary playlists.  Like grave diggers on a full moon night, you will find what you are looking for, all you have to do is Dig.  Dig until you hit the sound that is hollow and cold. Dig until your bones are creaking. There is Ghostly music down there. And all of this haunting music is free to share and download.

    Some of the ghouls working for the dark lord have brought us back a few tasty tracks already.  These servants have sacrificed themselves so that you may stream them for freely HERE.  But be careful, the dark lord of ccMixter is cunning, and soon you'll find yourself enslaved to the music created here.

    There are also mad scientists, musical genius gone awry, making new nightmare-like songs, via the new Ghost Notes Remix Event, that will rattle the cages of your mind.  This new music pleases our master, though no mercy will ever be shown.

    Like Frankenstein was created from pieces and parts, all this haunting music is created from source material uploaded under Creative Commons licenses. Frightening music is brought to life, stomping around the internet like the monster Mary Shelly created.  Join us and we will rule the world.  Happy Halloween!

  • Crack the Code: Dev Team Call Out

    Posted April 3, 2017 at 8 a.m. to ccMixter Listening Lounge Public | Comment

    Crack the CodeDo you have the desire, determination, and time to help us CRACK the CODE? Do you have the technical skills to join one of our two new volunteer Dev Teams? Please take a look at the teams below and see if your skills match.

    Current Site Maintenance Team

    This team is a devOps team focusing on the “ops” side, but requires dev skill as well.

    Skills Required for the Team

    Not everyone has to have all these skills, but they should all be represented on team.

    • Linux sysadmin skills via SSH

    • PHP and Apache

    • Some Javascript and HTML would be useful.

    • Help desk skills

    Next Version Team

    The “next version” team would also be devOps, but focused on development. The key vision of this team is to move to a modern REST model where posting to the server is done in a predictable, API tokened, JSON oriented way, with results rendered to the UI in a reliable JSON fashion.

    Skills Required for the Team

    Not everyone has to have all these skills, but they should all be represented on team.

    • Full stack skills in Apache/PHP and MEAN (or comparable frameworks.)

    • Visual Design skills

    • Wireframing and sketchy gui

    • People with a  lot of patience and creativity.

    • Strong opinions about what music collaboration should look like

    • Willing to read “ccmixter: A Memoir.”

     

    Still intrigued? Awesome! Please follow this link and read Admiral Bob’s development vision for ccMixter for more details. Reply to this forum post or contact us when you are ready and able to join one of the Dev Teams.
