    Hope for the Holidays at ccMixter

    Raise your Voice in Song for Hope

    As the winter holidays approach, much of the world prepares for traditional celebrations. ccMixter has an annual winter tradition of its own: our holiday remix event.

    Artists on ccMixter are invited to share original and traditional, holiday and seasonal pells, samples, and remixes. With so much heart-wrenching turmoil and conflict all around us, we encourage a focus on HOPE for this year’s holiday event.

    The ccMixter musical community of collaboration and sharing is built upon unity, harmony, inclusivity, and generosity… together we will create music that expresses our collective sentiments with the world!

    To learn more about the Hope for the Holidays Remix Event, visit this ccMixter forum post. Click to listen to PELLS, SAMPLES AND REMIXES.

    Hope lies in dreams, in imagination, and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality. ~Jonas Salk

  • May Day Secret Mixter

    Answer the Distress Call by Creating New Music

    May Day Secret MixterMay Day! This term is not only a distress call, but May Day is also a holiday that celebrates the emergence of spring, flowers and new life.

    One of ccMixter's founders (and greatest inspirations) is Lawrence Lessig. Lessig is putting his support behind MayDay.us -- sounding a May Day alarm because world governments are corrupt and not addressing the important issues facing us today.

    But what happens when old systems of corruption are rooted out? Well, new life is suddenly made possible. And THAT is what the May Day Secret Mixter is all about. 

    So Mixters, let’s make some great music! Music that not only addresses the May Day distress call, BUT music (in secret!) that celebrates the emergence of new life and new possibilities.

    The details? Sign-up through April 23 and your assignment will be emailed to you April 24 when remixing begins. Upload day is May 8 -- and block out the day to listen. Yes, you'll want to isten all day!

    Read about the rules of the May Day Secret Mixter HERE.
