Episode 26: Mystery and Spy Music
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 mystery and spy music.
La Prima Noche Versus Carmão 1 Pulmão EP 2009 (2:36)

I Knew a Guy (2:46)

That was La Prima Noche Versus Carmão 1 Pulmão EP 2009 by Avante Royale and Noir - 01 by grimorio, which are both available from SoundCloud. Then we had I Knew a Guy by Kevin MacLeod, which is available from incompetech.com. After that was Vicenzo Bosa - Jazz by vicenzobosa and Noir guitar soundtrack samples by Stevies Amp Shack, which are both available from SoundCloud. Finishing up was the instrumental version of café connection by morgantj, which is available from ccMixter. All six of them in this set are licensed under an Attribution license.
This week's another "at least as permissive as Attribution" week. As usual, I'm a big fan of the more permissive licenses sine there's so much more you can do with them. While I understand the position of people wanting to restrict their works to noncommercial or something like that, I tend to be more of the opinion with my own works that if you're going to give people the freedom to reuse your works, you might as well give them the freedom to build whatever kind of cool stuff they want with them. No sense in making them redo what you've already done just because they want to use it in a way you didn't anticipate. That's why I like doing these episodes. If I use anything more restrictive, I have to place restrictions on the whole episode. This way, you've got a nice collection of stuff to easily reuse for just about anything. I'd love to see one of you listeners use this music for an open movie or a new game. That would be truly awesome. And if you do, please let me know. I'd love to see what you did and try it out!
Speaking of games, the Humble Bundle folks are back again with another bundle of games for Android, Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows. There a number of really fun-looking games that I'm looking forward to trying when I get some time. Pay what you want, and depending on your pricing level there's a bonus game. Plus, they come with soundtracks. Check it out today at humblebundle.com
Now, back to music.
Thoughtful Spy (2:27)
Escape From Tridion (2:02)

Soundtrack (edited) (5:37)
That was Thoughtful Spy by Reality Catcher, which is available from SoundCloud. After that was Escape From Tridion by Pirato Ketchup, which is available from Jamendo. Then we had Fast Talkin by Kevin MacLeod, which is available from incompetech.com. Next up was Desert Spy by KrugerKnight, Rain & Mystery by Royaltyfree, and Soundtrack: solo electric blues guitar by Barrettt, which are available from SoundCloud. After that was a slightly edited version of Long Note Three followed by Interloper, both by Kevin MacLeod and available from incompetech.com. Finishing up was an edited version of Soundtrack by nathanschlawin, which is available from SoundCloud. All nine of the songs in this set are licensed under an Attribution license.
Today's app-of-the-day is Ri-Li, a game where you have to route toy trains around a track without letting your train collide with itself. It's a lot like the classic snake game where as you collect items from the track, your train gets longer. The catch is that, unlike a snake game, you're limited to running on the existing tracks instead of having a whole field of open space to use. Makes for some interesting strategy. It's available for Linux, AmigaOS, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows. Download it today at ri-li.sourceforge.net
Now for a short noncommercial break from one of our nonsponsors followed by more music.

Colin Mutchler) by Sawtooth, which is available from ccMixter, and a slightly edited version of Speed Surfer by Pirato Ketchup, which is available from Jamendo. Finishing up was Los impresionistas by LOS SEDIENTOS SURFISTAS, which is available from SoundCloud. All five of the songs in this set 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.
