Free music challenge

I’ve decided to set myself a challenge. A single sided DVD-R holds about 4.4 gigabytes of data. I’m going to fill one with free music.

Not pirated music, but tracks that are being given away free by artists. I’m going to see how long it takes to fill the DVD. If anyone has any suggestions for sites, please leave them in the comments.

  1. Etree has lots of live concerts from trade-friendly artists and is strictly noncommercial. The rest of archive.org has some good stuff too.

    Creative Commons is a good place to start searching.

    Indymedia sometimes has some great stuff, mostly activist-related. And David Rovics is a great activist-musician. You’ll probably find lots of other stuff on the rest of soundclick too.

    Be carefully how you out the tracks on, if MP3 there is a limited number of tracks past which your PC will refuse to read the disc, I don’t know if there is a limit if you put them on a full tracks but I would suspect there is

  3. Ooh, I’ve just come across the Alternative Tentacles label who have lots of tracks from their records online as mp3s. There’s a lot of punk, but also some very random stuff. And because it’s all on an underground record label it’s very listenable to.
