I'm currently sniffing around for a theme tune for a forthcoming SF-themed podcast, and am open to any suggestions that might be tossed this way.
There is a large body of free music available on the web--and by "free" I emphatically do *not*
mean music that can be downloaded without paying any money (legally or otherwise), but music that is released under Creative Commons
or similar licenses that allow re-use and adaptation of the kind needed to use as theme music. In particular I have been listening to titles at the CC_Mixter
sites (I started putting together a playlist
at the latter, just a few things that caught my ear, so far).
But there's a lot out there, as with music generally, and a lot of the time the kind of tune you'd want to use as theme music is not what you'd normally spend your evenings listening to. So I'd welcome suggestions of (a) specific tunes/bands to listen out for; (b) other sources of open-licensed music; (c) other approaches to finding good stuff.
Happy new year to all!
