The project started serendipitously. Took seven months, involving three other people whom I've never met -- and probably never will.
It includes this original 4-way collaborative track, pieced together without having met one another - Under The Velveteen Skies:
It all started when I uploaded a sample to ccMixter in Nov 08, released under a Creative Commons license.
A few weeks later, someone remixed my sample. No explicit permission needed from me, as the CC license already covered my intent. When my track was remixed and posted in ccMixter, the system automatically notified me.
I can truly say the album was built upon the foundations laid by Creative Commons.
To read more of how that one thing led to the final album, read this post.
Hope you enjoy listening to this album. I sure enjoyed the process of putting it together.
