    We discussed so many interesting things on Music Manumit with this #Australian musician: https://www.musicmanumit.com/2015/09/mirva-150927-music-manumit-podcast.html

    We discussed ccMixter.org, Kellee Maize, and we actually had a short, but interesting discussion about licensing. I have two more Australian musicians that we had on Music Manumit, and then I'll be pulling from various other sources until we find someone to be the #Oceania judge for CC Community Music Awards. I should probably find some stuff from #NewZealand and the other islands. It is definitely out there.

    I found this by running the -X flag, but I have no idea where this config is. Is it embedded in a dependency jar or something? I def do not want max JdkVersion 1.7.

    I am not a Java dev, so please assume I know nothing if you can help. Thanks in advance!

    Back in the day Tom Ray and I did a show called Music Manumit. Including Judd Madden (Music) and Isaac Graham, whose music I have featured here on previous days, we had 5 other Australians on the show in our 8-year run.

    One of them wasn't a musician, but rather the leader of the CC Global Affiliate Network at the time, Jessica Coates If you don't know much about Creative Commons, you might be interested in hearing our interview with her from back in 2012: https://www.musicmanumit.com/2012/12/cc-b-day-121209-music-manumit-podcast.html?m=0

    Why all this talk about #Australia? Well, the CC Community Music Awards is looking for a judge for Oceania for next year. Australia is by far the largest nation in Oceania, a geographic region that includes #Australasia, #Melanesia, #Micronesia and #Polynesia.

    On Monday, I posted a Judd Madden album to showcase what #Australia has to offer in the way of music.

    Today, I'll share Isaac Graham's http://138.197.106.55/music/Isaac_Graham/Empty_Vessels/ here.

    I have no idea why the FMA is an IP address now. It's really sad where the Free Music Archive has gone. Tracks are still not able to uploaded.

    Nonetheless, there is still a thriving Creative Commons music scene. There are podcasts like The Bugcast and CCHits.net. There are netlabels like blocSonic and Hypnotic Dirge Records. Many more listed at https://netlabelguide.com/

    SoundCloud still allows CC music. There is ccMixter.org. My personal favorite place for looking for music these days (other than http://blocsonic.com, of course), is Bandcamp.

    We don't have a plan for bringing the FMA back to its former glory, but we are doing our part at the CC Community Music Awards to keep #ccmusic alive and well.

    We still need a volunteer judge for #Oceania, which includes Australia, #NewZealand, and the #PacificIslands. Would you be interested in helping out?

    Ok, US Southwest is taken, so it's only #Oceania (mostly #Australia) left for CC CMA.

    Most of your questions about being a judge should be answered at https://bdinls576.wordpress.com/2020/03/23/2022-cc-community-music-awards-regional-rules/ but if you have additional questions, please let me know!

    I am looking for someone to help out with the Creative Commons Community Music Awards for next year.

    I would like someone to be the just for the US Southwest, which by our definition includes the states of #Oklahoma, #Texas, #NewMexico, #Arizona.

    We have two more regions we are trying to get judges for for the 2022 addition of CC Community Music Awards. Oceania (basically, Australia) and US Southwest. Earlier, I posted a recent album from one of my favorite musicians from Australia. I think ultimately Oceania will be a harder sell for a judge simply because of timezones, but I figured I should give the Southwest some love too.


    T-bird & the Breaks is no longer a band, but a sample of what the Southwest has to offer:

    We have two more regions we are trying to get judges for for the 2022 addition of CC Community Music Awards. #Oceania (basically, #Australia) and US Southwest. I think Oceania will be more difficult in the end for finding a judge, but it won't be a difficult region for the judge. Lots of CC musicians in Australia from #Perth to #Sydney. We had a number of them on Music Manumit.

    Here's a recent album from one of my favorites: https://juddmadden.bandcamp.com/album/joy-is-the-current

    Anyone interested in music from #Asia? I think this is going to be hardest region to fill (due to time zone). It shouldn't be particularly hard region to judge as their are plenty of artists from #Japan on bandcamp. There are definitely some musicians from #China on bandcamp too

    No changes from yesterday's post. I don't have the time to follow-up with everyone individually, sadly. Please feel free to translate this as many of the regions left are predominantly not English-speaking.

    It's that time again. We are looking for regional judges for the Creative Commons Community Music Awards. Please let me know if you would be interested in taking a region.


    The regions we have available are as follows (two regions are already taken):
    Mid-West - #ND, #SD, #NE, #KS, #MO, #IA, #MN, #WI, #IL, #IN, #MI, #OH
    Southwest - #OK, #TX, #NM, #AZ

    #Canada
    #Mexico, Central America, and #Caribbean (including US territories)
    #Asia (minus Russia)
    #Oceania (including #Australia)
    #SouthAmerica
    #Africa

    In the future, we would love to break the regions up more, but having smaller regions this year has proved unmanageable. How much of that is due to covid? Who knows.

    For additional info, please see
    https://bdinls576.wordpress.com/2020/03/23/2022-cc-community-music-awards-regional-rules/

    I have been told in the past that once-a-day posts are fine but any more than that gets tiresome. I doubt I will post daily, but if I post about this too much, please let me know!

    I would really appreciate shares to get the message out of this. Also, please feel free to translate. I would love to have native Spanish speakers in particular involved as South America is predominantly Spanish-speaking. I know Brazil is Portuguese and one of the smaller northeast countries is English-speaking, but we just need diversity in general and I think having native speakers of other languages is one way to do that.

    It's that time again. We are looking for regional judges for the Creative Commons Community Music Awards. Please let me know if you would be interested in taking a region.


    The regions we have available are as follows (two regions are already taken):
    #Canada
    Rocky Mountain - ID, MT, WY, NV, UT, CO
    Mid-West - ND, SD, NE, KS, MO, IA, MN, WI, IL, IN, MI, OH
    Southwest - OK, TX, NM, AZ
    Southeast - AR, LA, MS, AL, GA, FL, TN, SC, NC, KY, WV, VA, DC (if someone really wants to do Northeast with DC, sure, take it)
    #Mexico, Central America, and Carribbean (we haven't decided if PR will be here or in US Southeast)
    #Asia (minus Russia)
    #Oceania (including #Australia)
    #SouthAmerica
    #Africa

    Agradecería que se compartiese al máximo para que el mensaje llegue fuera de aquí. También, por favor, siéntete libre de traducirlo. Me encantaría en particular tener portavoces involucrados que tengan el español como lengua nativa ya que en Suramérica se habla español predominatemente. Sé que en Brasil se habla portugués y en uno de los países más pequeños del noreste se habla inglés, pero necesitamos diversidad en general y pienso que tener portavoces con otras lenguas es una manera de conseguirlo.


    Llegó ese momento otra vez. Buscamos jueces regionales para los Premios de la Comunidad Musical Creative Commons. Por favor, hazme saber si estarías interesado en ocuparte de una región.


    Las regiones que tenemos disponibles son las siguientes (dos regiones ya tienen portavoz):


    #Canada
    Rocky Mountain - ID, MT, WY, NV, UT, CO (ya está pillada)
    Mid-West - ND, SD, NE, KS, MO, IA, MN, WI, IL, IN, MI, OH
    Southwest - OK, TX, NM, AZ
    Southeast - AR, LA, MS, AL, GA, FL, TN, SC, NC, KY, WV, VA, DC (pillada, pero si alquien quiere ocuparse del Noreste con DC, adelante)
    #Mexico (México), América Central y el Caribe (no hemos decidido si Puerto Rico estará aquí o en el Sureste de los EE.UU.))
    #Asia (menos Rusia)
    #Oceania (Oceanía, incluyendo #Australia)
    #SouthAmerica (Suramérica)
    #Africa (África)


    En el futuro nos gustaría dividir un poco más las regiones, pero el tener regiones más pequeñas este año ha resultado inmanejable. ¿Cuánto de ésto es debido a la COVID19? Quién sabe.


    https://bdinls576.wordpress.com/2020/03/23/2022-cc-community-music-awards-regional-rules/ se ha editado desde ayer.


    Me han dicho en el pasado que un mensaje al día está bien, pero que más resulta cansino. Dudo que publique diariamente, pero si publico demasiado sobre ésto, por favor, ¡házmelo saber!
