How to produce & publish your music album online, practically free, without a music production company or distributor

Published on

Presentation slides for Barcamp SG 09. I'll share my experience in producing and publishing my music albums. Will cover the "How Tos" on setting up a home studio without costing an arm and leg; How sites like ccMixter (among others) makes it possible for you to produce songs even if you don't play any musical instruments; How to distribute your music online (otherwise known as 'How to shamelessly promote your music'). And an overview of what's Creative Commons and why it matters.

Notes
  • Hmmm, interesting video.

    Most of our tracks have been released under a non commercial creative commons license and made freely available for radio stations, podcasters and independent filmmakers to use in their shows/films.


    We are an independent record label not a big bad corporation out to sue you for file sharing, we WANT you to spread our music around.


    With such an overcrowded market place giving away your music is essential in my opinion. The biggest problem for emerging indie artists today is obscurity, not piracy. To find out more listen to The Antiqcool Podcast

  • Actually I made my dog pose for the shot. I had a doggy biscuit somewhere at the edge of the table. Made him lie on his side and said 'Stay'. Then took the picture. Heh.
