Episode 50: Steampunk

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 steampunk music, some of which has lyrics.

Mechanical Hearts (2:52)

Zadok the Priest (1:46)
Smile - Sung by Chad Doeden (0:20)

That was Mechanical Hearts by Aldaron Del'Aenrysch, which is available from SoundCloud and is licensed under an Attribution license.  After that was The Woven Dream - Epic Orchestral by Walid Feghali, which is available from SoundCloud and was licensed under an Attribution license as of February 24, 2013.  Then we had Zadok the Priest by Blindingham, Smile - Sung by Chad Doeden by Aaron's Records(Aaron A.), and finishing up was The Laboratory by Steampianist, all three of which are available from SoundCloud and are licensed under an Attribution license.

Today's app-of-the-day is MuseScore, a music notation and scoring program that makes it very easy to typeset sheet music.  You pretty much just click the staves to add notes to them in whatever lengths you want and it takes care of drawing all the stems and such and generally expressing the music you draw in using normal music notation rules.  It's really cool and, due to the number of automatic organization and cleanup features, makes it quite easy to typeset sheet music.  Even if you don't know much about musical theory, I'm confident you could still compose playable songs with relative ease with it.  It's available for Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows.  Download it today at musescore.org

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

Dill Pickle Rag (1:43)
Breaking the siege (2:01)
Sound Off (2:52)

That was Ethereal(nop mix) by @nop, which is available from ccMixter and is licensed under an Attribution license.  After that was the very long song Ludus Mobilis V: Toccata & Fugue by the Society for the Development of New Music, which is available from Jamendo and is licensed under an Attribution Noncommercial Share-Alike license.  Next up was CsO237(taeb) - music058 by cso237, which is available from SoundCloud and is licensed under an Attribution license.  Following that was Time for Hope (ft. SackJo22, Ehma) by Syenta, which is available from ccMixter and is licensed under an Attribution Noncommercial license.  After that was Dill Pickle Rag by The Joy Drops, which is available from SoundCloud and is licensed under an Attribution license.  Then we had Breaking the siege by Celestial Aeon Project, which is available from Jamendo and is licensed under an Attribution Noncommercial Share-Alike license.  Next up was Sound Off by John Phillip Sousa and performed by the United States Marine Band, which is available from Musopen and is licensed as Public Domain. Which is totally awesome.  Finishing up was an edited version of Mad by Mikey Mason, which is available from The Funny Music Project and is licensed under an Attribution Noncommercial Share-Alike 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.
