Culture wants to be freemixed

As we are not making money from this project (i.e. we're doing it because we love it) we've chosen to license it under Creative Commons (CC).

This means that we invite any listeners/readers to download the images or movie and remix them into their own movie podcast (using a similar CC liscense). Culture apparently, wants to be freemixed.

About ComixRadio

ComixRadio is a unique approach to both comics and radio. Rather than interrupt our music with pointless banter, we let the mediums of comics, animation & typography speak for us visually, while letting the music play on, without interruption.

This mixture of mediums is possible using the technique of podcasting. Listeners can download a podcast, load it into iTunes and upload it to their iPod, which is our preferred destination (though it will work just fine on your computer).

As Alice Rawsthorn said in a recent Guardian article, "the most exciting will be the new sequences of images, mostly digital animations, created to reflect the spirit of the music and to enhance our experience of listening to (the iPod)."

The origin of ComixRadio

ComixRadio was initially conceived by Colin White and Constantin Demner while they studied in London England.

Colin streamed his iTunes to a few classmates while they worked late into the night on thesis's. One night Colin and Constantin hosted and live-streamed a six hour radio mix to a few dozen listeners in London & around the world. That was the very first episode of ComixRadio, crude and long as it was. Although we didn't have any accompanying comics to our music, some of our ├╝ber-talented classmates decided to jam along and send us fan comics through the night. Here's a nice sample.
