Episode 27: Trance
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 trance music. As a heads-up, many of the songs this week have vocals. So with that, let's get started.
Trance Guitar (5:08)
Ghosts and Monsters (4:04)
Lift me up (3:28)
Randos - Mystery (6:40)
That was Trance Guitar by Centralsoft, which is available from SoundCloud and is licensed under an Attribution license. After that was Ghosts and Monsters (ft. eshar46) by George_Ellinas and Lift me up by tkdsky, which are both available from ccMixter and are licensed under an Attribution Noncommercial license. Finishing up was Randos - Mystery by Ranzor, which is available from SoundCloud and is licensed under an Attribution license.
At this point, you've still got a few more days for the Humble Bundle. They added another five games which you get if you pay more than the average. I haven't tried them all yet, but I can tell you that I very much like Splice, Eufloria, and Cogs. They're nice peaceful settings that lend themselves well to picking them up and playing for a few minutes, provided you can pry yourself away from them. I believe all of the games in this bundle are available for Linux, Android, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows, though I think one or two do not work on smaller Android devices like phones due to the small screen sizes. Check it out today at humblebundle.com
Face to face (3:35)
return to the future (3:10)
That was Trance by Kaerus, which is available from SoundCloud and is licensed under an Attribution license. After that was Face to face by GenDy, which is available from Jamendo and is licensed under an Attribution license. Finishing up was return to the future by Sekula Wieslaw, which is available from Jamendo and is licensed under an Attribution Noncommercial Share-Alike license.
Today's app-of-the-day is Audacious, the music player I use to organize my playlists. I didn't realize this until recently, but it's available for platforms other than Linux. Audacious is just an incredibly simple and basic music player. Not many bells and whistles, and that's why I like it. When you're working with different playlists as much as I do for this podcast, the stability of that functionality becomes a hugely important feature, and unlike other music players Audacious delivers on that point. They have downloads on their website for Linux and Microsoft Windows, and it looks quite easy to compile for Mac OS X. Check out the podcast website for a link to a howto for compiling it for Mac OS X, or to download the official version for Linux or Microsoft Windows, check out audacious-media-player.org
Now for a short noncommercial break from one of our nonsponsors, which this week is also a song, followed by some more music.
Behind Fantasy (4:15)
[www.electrobel.it]felixjd800 - you_bite_and_scratches (7:03)
That was CCmixter.org by Nitropox@CCmixter, which is available from ccMixter and is licensed under an Attribution Noncommercial license. After that was Behind Fantasy by CORIN-Music, which is available from Jamendo and is licensed under an Attribution license. Next up was Infinity by zero-project, which is available from zero-project.gr and is licensed under an Attribution license. Finishing up was [www.electrobel.it]felixjd800 - you_bite_and_scratches by Felixjd, which is available from Jamendo and is 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.
