PERSPECTIVES ON COLLABORATIVE MUSIC Throughout this course we've seen multiple esthetic currents, tools, and resources that help us to apply the principles behind free software to music. To finish this journey, we'll use this video to talk about some more platforms and resources to complement the work that you've been doing so far. Let's begin. Let's start by mentioning some platforms dedicated to publishing music under free licenses. Hernani already spoke about the Internet Archive, where you can find various record labels that stand out for releasing their records under Creative Commons licenses. For example, you use the search bar to look up a collection called "netlabels", and find a wide variety of productions to play and share music freely. Another platform that I'd like to mention is Jamendo Music, where you can access streaming services for a large selection of music that's also published under open licenses. I suggest taking some time to explore the wide variety of musical proposals that you can find in this site. A third resource I'd like to show you is the Free Music Archive, where you can also find musical content from various genres, available to listen to, download, and reuse freely and legally. Obviously, these platforms are in addition to other initiatives like Bandcamp, Vimeo, SoundCloud, or even YouTube, that although not mainly focused on publishing free music do allow you to assign Creative Commons licenses to the files you upload. MULTIPLE-USE SOUND REPOSITORIES Let's move on to some websites where we can find different sounds and musical tracks that can be useful for radio, theatre, or video projects, among other possibilities. In this sense, we have to mention freesound.org, a website where you'll find a huge amount of field recordings, incidental sounds, audio experiments, and, well, almost any sound that you can imagine. Another great advantage of this platform is that it offers detailed information about the files' format, and it's even common for the people uploading the audios to offer details about the microphones and recording techniques they used. Notice that once again Creative Commons licenses can be used to allow the free use of the available audios. Another initiative that you may find useful is called ccMixter. Here you can find various musical and audio resources that are expressly meant to be reused, transformed, and remixed for creative projects of any kind. This resource is part of the Creative Commons organization, so it should be clear that the available sounds are free with this type of license. Lastly, it's important to mention the Wikimedia Foundation's online sound repository. To explore this resource, just enter the Wikimedia Commons site, and use the search bar to find categories related to audio files. For example, you can search the "audio files" category, and you'll find various sound files that can be used freely. The third part of this video has to do with platforms that offer resources such as software, tutorials, code, or files of different formats related to musical creation with free software, besides texts for reflecting and analyzing similar subjects. A very useful website is Libre Music Production, where you can find a sizable number of articles, interviews, tutorials, and software reviews, among many other things related to musical production with an open code perspective. It's also important to reiterate the usefulness of platforms like GitHub, as Hernani explained in a previous video. This type of services are greatly useful for the development of free software, and musical software is no exception. It's also important to say that each of the programs that we've explored throughout these courses foster their own online communities, and each one has abundant resources that you can download to use in your own projects. On screen we can see sites where you can find downloadable files, tutorials, and discussion forums relating to SuperCollider, Pure Data, Arduino, and Ardour, the four softwares that we focused on in previous videos. And, lastly, to conclude this video, it's important to mention that, beyond the services and platforms that we've presented, there are online communities of artists, coders, and activists that promote free culture, collaborative art, and thus the music produced with these perspectives. An interesting site that I recommend exploring is called ColaBoraBora. There you'll find a community dedicated to matters of collaborative art. As for Latin America, I suggest checking out Ártica Online's website, which promotes cultural management in a free culture framework. In this community, you can take various courses that in one way or another relate to what we've been discussing, and you can even follow all the online events that the people at Ártica organize. Obviously, the platforms and communities that we've mentioned are just a small sample of everything you can find if you explore the internet yourselves, and, more importantly, if you talk with people and make social networks over your artistic journeys. Lastly, every digital network is above all else a social network. And social networks are where we can share, where we can create, and where we can make music based on the principles of free culture. Thank you very much.
