  • Looking for some help for Music Manumit

    23 Jan 2015, 20:59 by DouglasAWh

    www.musicmanumit.com needs scheduling help for this summer. You can begin immediately.

    You'll interact with musicians and music industry executives on a weekly basis, if not more frequently. You can help guide the show by contacting your favorite remixable musicians. We've been doing this for almost five years, so we have quite the contact list already. If you don't know musicians using remixable licenses, we can guide you.

    We currently operate out of Baltimore and Madison, WI, but this summer I am moving to Cincinnati. It is during June and July that we will need the most help. We're happy to have you stay longer though.

    If you want more responsibility, prove yourself and we are happy to give it. We've had great success with interns in the past and hope to have more in the future!

    This is a telecommuting position, but I'm happy to meet with you in Baltimore City in person to help get things done.

    Here are the potential tasks:

    1. Maintain our FMA curation: http://freemusicarchive.org/curator/MusicManumit
    2. Coordinate times and contact medium with musicians. Many of the musicians for the summer have already been selected, but for open dates, you'll be free to contact the musicians you want, as long as they fit our criteria.
    3. Update our calendar entries with whether we are going to use Skype or Hangout for a particular interview.
    4. Maintain our Last.fm page: http://www.last.fm/group/Music+Manumit+Podcast
    5. Maintain our Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/groups/music-manumit
    6. Help with show notes during the show and clean up show notes after the show.
    7. Write policy articles.
    8. Write punk album reviews -- there might be some room to expand this if you do a good job on punk.musicmanumit.com
    9. Put together punk shows -- again, there might be some room to expand if you do a good job
    10. Report on area music events. We can help get media credentials. We've done it in the past. It really just depends on the event whether we will be able to get them.
    11. Recruit more help, and potentially manage the recruits depending on your ability.
    12. Write grant proposals -- we'd love to actually pay you!
    13. Research grant proposals

    Please let us know the following:
    Where are you located?
    Were you thinking about getting started now or just in the summer?
    What piece of the music industry most interests you? (we don't need an essay, just music business, licensing, music journalism...something like that)
  • Looking for jobs in Cincinnati and Baltimore

    Back in early October I mention that I would be moving to Cincinnati for the 2015-16 academic year. While if people read the content of the post, they knew I am looking, I wanted to make things more explicit.

    Why a Last.fm post? Well, I posted on Craigslist and have gotten nothing but garbage. I also posted to backpage - garbage. So far, I've gotten nothing on LinkedIn.

    But seriously, why Last.fm? Well, music is important to me. I've run two music organizations in the past, been in bands, and now do scheduling for two different music podcasts. I'd really like to work with those who have music as a passion.

    I want to be explicit that I am willing to move to Cincinnati (or Louisville) now, and not wait until July. I'd also be willing to stay in Baltimore longer for the right position.

    I'm happy to provide a resume off LinkedIn, but here it is for those interested: https://www.linkedin.com/in/douglasawh
  • We need someone for tomorrow night.

    Music Manumit needs a remixable musician guest for tomorrow night. If you are a musician, please see http://www.musicmanumit.com/p/interview-details.html.

    If you know of someone that might be interested, please let me know.
  • The quest for regions begins.

    Now that we have confirmed our 1st African guest on Music Manumit, I guess it's time to start looking for Eastern Europe (minus Poland if you think it's not central Europe), North Africa, Middle East, Central American (minus Mexico) and Central Asia. Actually, we have a Russian lined up once I take the time to arrange for an interpreter (but that still leaves the rest of Eastern Europe). We've worked with interpreters twice before with great success.

    Of course, we still take musicians from all over the world. We've just already had guests from all the other continents.

    If you're interested in joining us, check out http://www.musicmanumit.com/p/interview-details.html
  • headed to Cincinnati for the 2015-16 academic year

    I mentioned on Tuesday that I had big news. Well, here it is! From July 2015 to July 2016, I'll be living in Cincinnati. It's still eastern time, so no changes in Music Manumit or Free Culture Sports Show recording times.

    Until we move to Cincinnati, I'll continue to look for temporary and telecommute work.
  • looking for collaborators in various parts of the world

    For now, this project has nothing to do with music. The international community is what brought me to post on last.fm.

    I am looking for those with political (the broadest sense of the term) connections to the following places/peoples:

    AFRICA: Darfur United | Zanzibar | Chagos Islands
    AMERICA: Cascadia | Quebec
    ASIA: Arameans Suryoye | Kurdistan | Tamil Eelam
    EUROPE: Abkhazia | Countea De Nissa | Cilento | Ellan Vannin | Franconia | Heligoland | Monaco | Nagorno Karabakh | Northern Cyprus | Occitania | Padania | Romani People | Sapmi | Székelyföld LE | South Ossetia

    That list is pulled from http://conifaofficial.wordpress.com/members/, which should give you some idea about what the project entails. Obviously, more areas could be added to that list, so check it for a current list. I

    'm happy to give details on the project, but there aren't many to give right now. Once we know the location of the 2016 tournament, I will post again looking for more people specifically in that area.

    If you really want to get in on the ground floor, you can join us in our first status meeting in a while. I think it's a private event, but maybe you can request an invite directly? https://plus.google.com/events/ckp898tklrjmuavngtms2oqen8o?authkey=CJiU_PPHhcz1Hg

    If you want an invite to the meeting but the hidden nature doesn't allow you to see details, just email me at dw11@unhlaw.unh.edu. Also, feel free to contact me with questions, though if you post your questions here I can give answers to everyone.
  • Inspired by the most recent Music Manumit guest

    Inspired by Garrett at http://www.musicmanumit.com/2014/10/indiegogo-141005-music-manumit-podcast.html, I'd like to annouce that I am looking for telecommute work. I'm writing on Last.fm specifically because I'd like to work in music.

    I should have a related announcement tomorrow some time after noon US ET.
