Who Are We?
Launched in November 2008, ThisIsOpenMusic! is an open source music label run by musicians. We operate from Brighton in the UK.
We don’t believe in the conventional record label. Our objective is to release great music and sound projects from around the world, in a free, share-friendly and re-distributable manner. We encourage you to redistribute individual tracks or whole releases via sharing links, Peer-to-Peer networks, MP3 Blogs and any other form you see fit, as long as you respect the rights of the respective Artists and follow the rules of the Creative Commons Sharing License.
ThisIsOpenMusic! is run by Barry Prendergast but is greatly helped by John Cohen & Leo Piggot.
