> "Arirang," the iconic, traditional Korean song of love and heartbreak,

> been played and sung by musicians throughout Korea's modern history to
> express memory, sorrow, pride, and propaganda.

> The song, a national symbol for both North and South Korea,

> since
> the Shilla Dynasty, more than 1,000 years ago.
>
> In 1926, "Arirang" became a hit as the theme song of the first Korean
> movie
> of the same title, which depicted the sorrow of Koreans living under
> Japanese rule. Ironically, even Japanese pop singers, beginning in the
> 1930s, created their own arrangements of the song. During the Korean
> War
> (1950-53), an American turned "Arirang" into a march to celebrate the
> heroism of the American-led United Nations forces.
>
> In 1985, the song was sung in Pyongyang by an art troupe from Seoul
> during a
> reunion of families separated since the Korean War. And in 2002, North
> Korea
> organized the Arirang Festival of gymnastics and art featuring 10,000
> performers, including students and young children, to celebrate the
> birthday
> of the nation's founder Kim Il-sung. It was also this secretive and
> cash-strapped country's first festival seeking to promote tourism and
> develop a new source of foreign currency.
>
> In the South, these days, "Arirang" is an unofficial national anthem

> OPSOUND LAUNCHES COPYLEFT RECORD LABEL TO SELL FREE MUSIC.
>
> New York, November 23, 2004. Opsound ( http://opsound.org ) an online
> sound pool of copylefted music, launches its experimental record label
> today with the electroacoustic band Catalpa Catalpa's debut album,
> Hardoncity.
>
> "I'm delighted to have Catalpa Catalpa's debut as the label's first
> release," says Sal Randolph, Opsound's founder. "Catalpa Catalpa's
> roots are in rock but their sheer love of sound and noise breaks down
> genre barriers, incorporating elements usually segregated into pop,
> electronica, hardcore, and experimental." A release party for the CD
> will take place in New York at the CBGB Lounge, 313 Bowery from 8pm to
> midnight on Thursday, December 2, 2004. The evening will feature live
> performances from Catalpa Catalpa, Ben Owen & Andy Graydon, Scavenger,
> and Weapons of Mass Destruction.
>
>
> THE OPSOUND LABEL: SELLING FREE MUSIC
>
> Opsound is an experimental record label and open sound pool of
> copyleft music, organized through the website opsound.org. It is a
> laboratory for looking at how artists can release music in a manner
> synergistic with the internet's capacity to encourage communication
> and sharing. Opsound explores the possibilities of developing a gift
> economy among musicians, borrowing from the model of the free and
> open source software communities.
>
> Like the music in Opsound's online pool, all work released on the
> Opsound label will be copylefted, meaning that it can be copied and
> shared freely, remixed, and even resold. "The idea of a record label
> selling free music has always been part of the Opsound concept," says
> Randolph. "Opsound's experiment aims to demonstrate that file sharing
> and free copying help rather than hurt record sales; it takes
> inspiration from the thriving economies of the free and open source
> software communities. "

>
> Selling CDs of free music requires new strategies. "We're
> concentrating on making the CD something physically beautiful and
> interesting, something that people will want to own," says Randolph. =

> The packaging features a fold-out hand-silkscreened poster designed by
> one of the band members. The poster, which serves as the liner notes,
> folds into a sleeve, and the CD is fastened on the outside, rather
> than placed in the sleeve, so that the CD graphics become the cover
> art.

> CATALPA CATALPA
>
> Catalpa Catalpa's two members Hayes Shanesy and Justin Stewart have
> been playing since grade school and though they're recently out of
> college they've already been in a succession of bands whose names
> evoke their hardcore affinities: Backhand, Bladder, Racecar, Leichman,
> Midnight in the Garden of Eden, and Skankersores. Always restless, the
> Catalpa sound never stays still for long, moving from unapologetic
> beauty to storms of noise with a sure hand for melody and development.
> Among the shimmering washes, pop riffs, and throbbing drones are wolf
> howls, lawn sprinklers blending into rhythms, recordings of friends
> talking. Feedback and distortion are manipulated like instruments,
> exploring the full range from delicate, almost singing sounds to
> crashing waves of loudness. Their first full-length CD, Hardoncity, is
> out now on the Opsound label. ( http://catalpacatalpa.com )
