Here''s your chance to sample Creative Commons–licensed tracks from The Wired CD. The Fine Art of Sampling Contest builds upon the CD, featuring tracks licensed under CC''s Sampling licenses, giving you the right to rip, sample, mash, and share -- without legal hassle.
Choose from either the Freestyle Mix Contest or the Militia Mix Contest. Entrants in the Freestyle Mix can select samples from any of the remaining 15 tracks on The Wired CD. The top 11 entries in the Freestyle Mix will go on the Creative Commons release The Wired CD: Ripped. Sampled. Mashed. Shared. to be promoted at the M3 Music Summit, South by Southwest music festival, the World Social Forum, Ready to Share, and the Creative Commons Website, among other places. Entrants in the Militia Mix can use track 11 from The Wired CD, “No Meaning No,” by Chuck D and the Fine Arts Militia; take samples from it; and combine them with their own creativity. The best entry will be on the next Fine Arts Militia album, to be released this spring.
The deadline for entries is February 12, 2005. For full contest rules and additional info, visit www.ccmixter.org/contests/wired.
