As a follow-up to their Save Betamax campaign, the music activists at Downhill Battle are seeking submissions for "3 Notes and Runnin'," their online music compilation commemorating and protesting the Sixth Circuit's ruling in Bridgeport Music v. Dimension Films.
According to their website, "Sample-based musicians and artists can share their own 30 second songs which have been created using only the sample in question. By doing so, they "hope to showcase the potential and diversity of sample based music and sound art, and to call into question the relationship between a sample and its use. . . . Participants are encouraged to process the sound in creative, unconventional and excessive manners, stretching the relationship between the finished result and the source material."
