I don’t normally go in for these sort of things, not because I’m a tight-arse, just that I find the majority of the sponsored events lacking in certain areas. But for some reason this one really appeals to me.
There’s the link. To sum it up, Jono Bacon, Ubuntu Community Manager, author, musician, and Open Source legend, amongst other things is going to record, mix, and release an entire album’s worth of original music in his home studio in just one 24 hour marathon session.
The music when finished will be released under his usual Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike-NonCommercial license on http://www.recreantview.org – his central internet location for all his recorded works – check it out.
Except where stated, all the main instruments (acoustic, electric, bass and drums) are played and recorded by Jono himself – no small amount of talent I’m sure you’ll agree!
So, go ahead, read his post, sponsor him – it’s all for a good cause.
