Episode 17: Jazz
Hi, and welcome to the Open Licensed Music Podcast, the show where we highlight music from artists who let you share their music. I'm Ralph Wacksworth, and today's episode is featuring jazz.
Has To Be Jazz (3:22)
Opportunity Walks (2:41)
Jazz Reflexion (3:09)
Spiritual Pathways (6:58)
That was Has To Be Jazz by Jadenise, which is available from SoundCloud. After that was Opportunity Walks by Kevin MacLeod, which is available from incompetech.com. Next up was Jazz Reflexion by Jose Gil, which is available from Jamendo. And finishing up was Spiritual Pathways by jazz-goa, which is available from SoundCloud. All four of them are licensed under an Attribution license.
This week I made it a goal again to find only music which was available under an Attribution license. It's considerably more difficult, since it trims down the variety of music you can pull from quite a bit, but in my mind it's worth it to do that once in a while. So go out there and use this music to make more cool stuff!
So, let's get back to music.
Faster Does It (3:01)
Frankovo stará (5:36)
Jazz Hooves (1:42)
That was Faster Does It by Kevin MacLeod, which is available from incompetech.com. After that was Frankovo stará by Jack Harrer Quintet and finishing up was Jazz Hooves by NoLongerAnon, which are both available from SoundCloud. All three of them are licensed under an Attribution license.
Sudden Jazz (2:26)

Игорь Бессчастный (Jazz trio)-After you I (3:56)
That was Sudden Jazz by theiosxaris, Jazz Goa Blues by jazz-goa, and Bossa Nova Jazz by 7BLUE, all three of which are available from SoundCloud. Finishing up was Игорь Бессчастный (Jazz trio)-After you I by B&TheBand, which is available from Jamendo. All four of them are licensed under an Attribution license.
Today's app-of-the-day is Synfig Studio, an incredibly powerful 2D animation program. When you animate, the normal process is to set up keyframes, which are essentially key poses you want the character to hit and when. From there, in classical animation, an in-betweener would draw the frames to make the character move from one of these keyframe poses to another. Computers have made this tweening significantly easier, but I've found it still tends to be rather cumbersome with professional 2D animation software. Not so with Synfig Studio. It has many more features, but that's the one that really stood out for me and made this program sing. It's available for Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows. Download it today at synfig.org

All four of them are licensed under an Attribution license.
So, that's all for today. Remember - piracy of commercial music only proves your dependence on that model and justifies further censorship and restriction. So don't pirate it - replace it with something better. Listen to open licensed music, donate to the artists behind it, go to concerts, and buy music from artists whose record labels don't see you as their enemies. Support artists where your support actually counts.
