This is not music – but it IS Creative Commons: By Attribution art. And it is freaking cool.
Thanks to Dmitry for sending me the link.
Album art? Sure! Book cover? Why not! Stickers? Wallpaper? Anything that needs gussying-up… Cool stuff.
Also, they is high-res. Like 40 megapixels. I didn’t check them all, but they are really good to go for anything up to and including billboards.
Is this a rip-off of Strauss? Absolutely!
Is it as good as Zarathustra? Absolutely not!
I originally wrote this piece for a planetarium in Spain (where Zarathustra is NOT yet in the Public Domain). Enough people from other countries had issues with Strauss – so I figured I would post this.
Download it from Soundcloud. For free. and for Free.
So what is this? It is something simple. A piece of music that you can play with two fingers. Any two fingers. (they do need to be on different arms).
This piece is dedicated to the Public Domain*. Please don’t be a jerk and try to sell this piece to people, or stop other people from using this piece by claiming it is your own. It is not yours. It is everyone’s.
This is actually a pretty versatile piece for scoring. Someone quietly thinking? Bam! Lay this in! Serious discussion about interpersonal relationships? Bam! Winner! Someone lose a puppy? I got your score right here!
*SoundCloud does not have a Public Domain licensing option… I chose the closest one there is.
Made with Native Instruments’ “The Giant” upright piano.
I don’t have much to share right now (due to people hiring me for things) – but I’m working on a new piece, and I figured I would share the work in progress. She has a long way to go yet. And you get to see how changes happen over time!
