Learn what sound recordings have entered the public domain and what that means for you as a music creator. The presentation will also include a look into a digital project that samples public domain sound recordings and supports the transformation of them into hip-hop elements.
The presentation closes with a brief workshop introduction to Audacity — a free and expansive sound editing software that can be used to manipulate and sample these public domain sound recordings.
Participants will learn:
- Information about the Music Modernization Act, especially the Title II CLASSICS Act
- Information about early sound recordings (how they were created and enjoyed)
- How to use CitizenDJ
- Introduction to Audacity
This workshop is open to all undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and staff.
