sonicsquirrel.net is a platform and distribution channel for netlabels. its aim is to promote free music and help artists and netlabels make their work easily available for a wider audience. sonicsquirrel.net is not only about providing music, but also about giving background information and sensitizing people for issues like copyleft/right, drm and netaudio.
the goal is to make finding and downloading free music easier than commercial distributed music, mytunes instead of itunes. the platform is meant to be an extension to the already existing archives, catalogues and magazines. our aim is to provide a user-friendly tool to find audio material.
the sonicsquirrel.net platform was started in summer 2003 as a side-project of an experimental two-week radio session.
a group of zurich based artists decided to broadcast only creative-commons and netlabel during this period of time. we thought that it would be a pitty not to share all the gathered contacts, information and music we decided to build a public platform with this material.
at the moment sonicsquirrel.net is quite widely used in the netaudio-scene. the current site delivers approx. 15'000 tracks every day.
