A music hosting site with a very different user interface.
3. Other sites that offer mp3 hosting
These are newspapers, radiostations and other organisations that offer mp3 hosting as a side-line.
BBC One music unsigned
Another media company. Hosting your music here gives you a change to get played on BBC radio. They make a selection and post only what they consider the best. I haven't found any classical music here yet.
4. Music enthousiasts
The Piano Society Project was started in August 2004 and is a unique possibility for professional and amateur pianists to promote themselves by sharing their own recordings of classical music.
Artist in Residence
Free webhosting for the arts and humanities. You can't host your mp3s here. But you might consider it for your PR website.
5. Public domain/Creative commons
There are numerous initiatives to copy the success of opensource software in the area of music. Until now without
much success. Many of those sites are small, get few visitors and are shortliving. Below we list some of the bigger
sites. If you are prepared to give the visitors the right to copy the music and give it to others you should
consider this option.
The most popular license at the moment is the Creative Commons license. There are different versions of this license. Some give only the right to non-commercial copying, others require only that the name of the musicians is
mentioned on the copies and yet others have no requirements at all.
The Internet Archive is well known for storing old versions of webpages. But they have also a music section where they offer to host your music.
Ibiblio is the Internet Library, that hosts a lot of free information. At their multimedia section they offer some music too.
It is a recent trend that more and more music is added to Wikipedia. For big composers like Bach and Beethoven you can now find uploaded music.
Musikethos.org is a virtual musical agora and a collection of high quality classical and jazz recordings. Their idea is to use the internet to publish and disseminate free downloads, licensed under Creative Commons.
6. Free diskspace sites
Welcome to the Wild West. Many companies offer free diskspace. Usually they want some advertising on your site in
return. The problem is that many of those sites are shortliving or are very slow. So try this at your own risk.
