This is a really cool project i just heard about, jointly set up by dublab and Creative Commons. Its called 'Into Infinity'. It is basically a bunch of sweet art and cool sound loops released under the Creative Commons License. Meaning you can download any of the loops and make a song. (which is actually the aim of the project).
"Into Infinity is all about embracing the infinite possibilities of art and music," says Mark McNeill, dublab's founder."These works are available to everyone in the world to reshape, remix, and redesign as many times over as possible. We can't wait to see all of the creative ways people use them."
"Sampling, remixing, and repurposing other people's work has resulted in some of the greatest art of our times," says Eric Steuer, Creative Commons' creative director. "With this project, we want to make the statement that this sort of creativity should not only be legal, but also explicitly encouraged."
