About Opsound: Free Love, Free Music.

Opsound is a gift economy in action, an experiment in applying the model of free software to music. Musicians and sound artists are invited to add their work to the Opsound pool using a copyleft license developed by Creative Commons. Listeners are invited to download, share, remix, and reimagine.


Opsound would like to thank the free and open source software communities for the amazing work and generosity that makes projects like this possible. We'd particularly like to thank Lucas Gonze and webjay for the terrific 'play this page' open API which runs our podcasts, and Gordon Luk for freetag which runs our tagging system. And more thanks to David Mintz for his lessons, Sharilyn Neidhardt, Christina Ray, and Tianna Kennedy for their help in transitioning from the old Opsound to the new, Scott Waddell for his help with the forums, FJ of Antonia for bringing us to Paris, Laura Schleussner of Rocketshop for bringing us to Berlin, Glowlab for bringing us to Boston, and all the amazing and patient contributors to Opsound for their gorgeous, mind-blowing, varied, ear-opening musics.

Opsound is a project of artist Sal Randolph.
