Open Music Archive
Pre-release

Recorded: Thursday 17th March 2011 (18:30 – 20:30)

Broadcast: scheduled for 2021

In response to Sean Dockray’s invitation to contribute to Public Monument, artists Eileen Simpson and Ben White produced a future public domain radio programme – projecting forward a selection of out-of-copyright archive music and recordings currently controlled under copyrights due to expire by the time of broadcast in the year 2021.

In 2011 in the UK, the term of copyright in a musical composition is limited to the life of the author plus 70 years, while the term of copyright in a sound recording is limited to 50 years from the date of recording. Once this bundle of proprietary rights expires, a music recording enters the public domain and is held in common. The legal frameworks which define the limits of the public domain are by no means fixed. The future of the public domain is precarious – the field of culture is increasingly colonised for private interests as proprietors of intellectual property continually lobby for the extension of their control.

Pre-release optimistically opens up a future channel for public domain material beyond individual proprietary and commercial interests – a truly free broadcast for an imminent public domain.

The Pre-release radio programme was presented by Dan Scott
