Organised by Polytechnic & Kate Sweeney. Part of the Polytechnic ecologies programme

We're working with Polytechnic to develop an evening of free music at Star and Shadow, an open volunteer-run social space and Cinema in Newcastle. We're inviting bands, musicians, producers and DJs to perform covers, versions, remixes or interpretations of the 1920s and 30s out-of-copyright folk, blues, and jazz from the Open Music Archive. A series of live plugged and unplugged performances will be recorded and licensed under Creative Commons ShareAlike, generating a new resource - free for use and reuse in the future.

The event opens up a temporary channel for music, exchange and discussion that operates beyond individual proprietary and commercial interests.


Invitation

The invitation is open for bands, musicians, DJs and producers to get involved and contribute to the night. We're inviting you to respond to the rare out-of-copyright folk, blues, and jazz from the Open Music Archive - to make covers, versions or remixes of the archive recordings and to perform them live on the night. It's a unique opportunity to get to know and work with forgotten lyrics, chords, melodies and beats. See the sources below or email us for more details: info[at]openmusicarchive[dot]org
