There’s lots of music available for download on the web – but free, legally cleared music is another matter. Today we look at two recent sites that are providing access to free and legal music. The free Music Archive (www.freemusicarchive.org) works directly with contemporary artists to provide music under some rights reserved licenses. Musopen (www.musopen.com), on the other hand, provides access to performances of classical music that are in the public domain, and provides a way fro people to join together to commission new performances of specific classical pieces that will be placed in the public domain forever.
