    A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it is not open. - Frank Zappa 
     
    If you feel like the world is spiraling downward like a house in a tornado and the cord to open the chute is broken, then this remix event is for you. Click your heels twice and join us for Somewhere Over the Border, an event where remixes do come true. 
     
    We like to be as open as possible, without borders, both literally and figuratively. ccMixer.org is an open access site where everyone from everywhere is always welcome. We are proud of our international, cultural and musical diversity. We believe that keeping our music openly licensed, open to boundless collaboration, and open inclusion in creative projects around the world, well, makes our community thrive. Like Dorothy, we are spinning from all that is happening in the world right now. Like Frank, we’re stretching the boundaries of music creation and interpretation — and hopefully opening minds along the way. 
     
    In paying attention to the undercurrent of the ccMixter community, we’ve noticed that many members are actively engaged in political and world happenings at this historic moment in time. Because of this, we think it would be a good time for a remix event that is world issue themed. Somewhere Over the Border is your opportunity to air your political grievances, share your hopes for the future and get remixed!
