As everyone is no doubt aware, Japan was hit with a major natural disaster on March 11th. The country’s citizens are in dire need of humanitarian aid.
I propose that we create an inter-label compilation featuring the work of the talented individuals of the netlabel scene – both the musicians and those who manage labels. The work that we already do is based on the ideas of charity, moral action, and global awareness, so it is only fitting that we work together with these principles in mind to assist those who urgently need our help. We would distribute this compilation for free while using “pay what you want” models on sites like Bandcamp and through donation buttons on label sites – and by giving 100% of the proceeds to charitable organizations like Red Cross, we can also generate money to support the relief efforts that are already underway. We have the ability to do this, so let’s do it!
Another project by the swedish Label Unique International that also creates a CC-licenced music compilation, still looking for submissions. If you know any more and similar projects, please post links in the comments.
Today, we give you the opportunity to show your contribution on our collected compilation album for victims of the tsunamis in Sendai. If you are an artist, working with music or graphics, contribute with your piece and let the funds go to The Red Cross Organization who helps those in need. The label (Unique International) will take no administration fee or profit from this, all earnings goes directly to Sendai via The Red Cross.
