Episode 41: Cartoon 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 cartoon music.

The Honors March (0:45 @ 0:10)
Habanera (4:07 @ 0:51)
Divertissement - Pizzicato (from the ballet Sylvia) (1:38 @ 5:01)
Hebrides Overture/Fingal's Cave (11:22 @ 6:36)

That was The Honors March by John Phillip Sousa and performed by the US Navy Band, which is available from Musopen and is licensed as Public Domain.  After that was Habanera from the opera Carmen by Georges Bizet and performed by Kevin MacLeod, which is available from incompetech.com and is licensed under an Attribution license.  Then we had Divertissement - Pizzicato (from the ballet Sylvia) by Léo Delibes and performed by Kevin MacLeod, which is available from incompetech.com and is licensed under an Attribution license.  Finishing up was The Hebrides overture or Fingal's Cave by Felix Mendelssohn and performed by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra for the Musopen project, which is available from Musopen and is licensed as Public Domain.

As you've just heard, this week's episode is not all Public Domain like I usually aim for for cartoon music episodes.  But it is still Attribution, so there's still plenty you can do with this music.

So with that said, let's get back to music.

Prelude to act 3 and bridal chorus (from Lohengrin) (6:33 @ 18:54)
Home Sweet Home (1:17 @ 25:26)
The Messiah, Hallelujah (3:51 @ 26:43)
La Cumparsita (3:47 @ 30:36)
Canon in D Major (5:55 @ 34:25)

That was Prelude to act 3 and bridal chorus from Lohengrin by Richard Wagner and performed by the United States Marine band, which is available from Musopen and is licensed as Public Domain.  After that was Home Sweet Home by Sir Henry Bishop and performed by Lucas Gonze, which is available from soupgreens.com and is licensed under an Attribution license.  That recording could probably be considered a form of historical preservation - he used not only sheet music but instruments from 1900 and earlier to play it and has the sheet music available on his website if you want to try playing it yourself.  Then we had The Messiah, Hallelujah by George Frideric Handel and performed by Orchestra Gli Armonici, which is available from Musopen and is licensed as Public Domain.  Next up was La cumparsita by Gerardo Matos Rodríguez, which is available from Wikipedia and is licensed as Public Domain.  Finishing up was Canon in D Major by Johann Pachelbel and performed by Kevin MacLeod, which is available from incompetech.com and is licensed under an Attribution license.

Today's app-of-the-day is DOSBox, an x86 emulator specifically intended for running old games.  For those of you unfamiliar with emulators, when you run DOSBox, it basically boots up a simulation of an old computer inside of your new one, allowing you to run old programs that no longer run properly on modern computers.  DOSBox runs pretty much everywhere - there's even a port of it for my cell phone.  It's available for Linux, BSD, OS/2, OpenSolaris and OpenIndiana, BeOS and Haiku, Kolibrios, RISC OS, XBox, PSP, Wii, Palm OS, webOS, Symbian, Maemo, BlackBerry Tablet OS, Android, Apple iOS, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, and probably many more.  Check it out today at dosbox.com

Now for a short noncommercial break from one of our nonsponsors followed by more music.

Nonsense Novels
Also Sprach Zarathustra (1:26 @ 44:03)
Rock-A-Bye Baby (5:22 @ 45:25)
Pop Goes The Weasel Music Box (0:16 @ 50:46)
Sobre las Olas (7:27 @ 51:02)
Manhattan Beach (2:17 @ 58:30)

That was the Sunrise fanfare from Also Sprach Zarathustra by Richard Strauss and performed by Kevin MacLeod, which is available from incompetech.com and is licensed under an Attribution license.  After that was Rock-A-Bye Baby by an unknown composer and performed by Nexus 6, which is available from SoundCloud and is licensed under an Attribution license.  Then we had Pop Goes The Weasel Music Box, again originally by an unknown composer, performed by cgrote, which is available from FreeSound and is licensed under an Attribution license.  Next up was Sobre las Olas by Juventino Rosas and synthesized by, and I'm going to give this my best shot, Alberto Eliseo Méndez Blackaller y orquesta XYZ Antares, which is available from IMSLP and is licensed under an Attribution license.  Finishing up was Manhattan Beach by John Phillip Sousa and performed by the United States Marine Band, which is available from Musopen and is licensed as Public Domain.

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.
