I released the Tentative Armor album and book under a Creative Commons license because I really love the idea of people taking my work apart and putting it back together as they see fit. With that in mind, I decided to try something new. With help from Tenlegs Arts and Media Network I am releasing all of the stems for each track on the album and inviting people to create their own remixes. The final result will be professionally mastered and released for free under a Creative Commons license through my online shop.
If you’d like to participate, create a Tenlegs account (if you don’t have one already) and then stop by the Tentative Armor Project Page. There you’ll be able to listen to the album and decide which track you’d like to remix. Once I add you as a collaborator to the project, you’ll have access to download everything you’ll need from the various pages within the project. I’d love to have the finished remixes no later than February 15th.
I have been exploring Tenlegs for a while now so I am really excited to be making use of the site in this way. Tenlegs is an online platform that provides tools for artists & musicians to find jobs, build their online portfolio, and collaborate with other artists. They have been great in terms of helping me set up the project and I am the first to be using the network for this type of project. Please let me know how it all goes for you. It’s been pretty easy to get things set up from my end, but we would love to know about any snags you come across. The project is set up to facilitate conversation and interaction, you’ll be able to upload works in progress to the project page as well. I’m so excited about what this can become.
Finally, if there is some other way you’d like to interact with the work, graphics, video, animation, software, anything else, jump on in. I would love to see this be a playground for all of our different passions and talents.
