Sunday, sunday, sunday.
It’s all happening. The Big Day. The Big Event. The American Pastime. The Super Flush. The Super Bowl. The Superbowl.
The day America stops and glues itself to TVs everywhere. Tons of snacks, munchies, beer, sodas, BBQs, belching and more. Woo hoo. I don’t watch a lot of football, but I do watch the Superbowl. Mostly I go to hang with friends and to stuff myself with food I don’t normally eat or drink. I’ll catch some of the game in between commercials and the halftime show. Too bad Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake brought us the delayed on tape broadcasts. Too bad that much of the country has such a problem with their bodies and seeing another body.
Oh enough of that. We all know what we do on this unofficial American holiday. An unofficial day that relishes in the Ã¼ber commercialism of things.
On to the flip side of commercialism and to the music for the day. General Fuzz contacted me recently and offered up his tunes. Like a good host of this blog, I went to listen. I found it to be fun stuff. What I didn’t realize is he was seriously offering up his tunes for free. Well, free as long as there is no commercial gain. It’s a concept called the creative commons license. Where you’re free to have his music, but if you want to profit from it, you got to get permission and get a license.
After reading his bio and learning about the process he went through to write and record the music I find it hard to understand why he would want to give it away for free. Anything worth having in a music library is worth paying for right? He does accept donations. But it’s called sponsoring. So I do recommend that you head to his website to sponsor the music. While I can’t condone giving the music for free, I can’t stop an artist from doing so if they desire to do so. He must have a fun day job.
With the music, I really appreciate the space he’s created in this particular track. What is a tell tale sign of some cool production is when you can hear the space of a song when listening on a laptop computer. That’s certainly the case hear. Several of instruments leap out of the speakers, not right into my face. No, they shoot for the sides of my head and almost feel like their dancing about a foot to either side of me. That’s always cool. I imagine if I pulled it up on my studio speakers I would almost feel like I was hearing surround sound.
There’s one thing I will say, you can hear the fact that this is done for the enjoyment of music. No more motive than that.
