I have to tell you about this guy, Chenard Walcker. He’s a French artist, but don’t let that put you off! He’s a sound artist more than anything, although he does all his own artwork too. The music is a complete mashup (but he was doing it before ‘mashup’ became a concept) of jazz, funk, ethnic sounds and grooves, as well as anything else that happens to sound good.
Guess what? It sounds good!
The best thing is that all his CDs are available for free download under the Creative Commons licence. Basically you can download all you like – just don’t sell it!
