I'm very happy Sir Eric Rorer ( http://www.ericrorer.com/
) used my music as sountrack for his amazing video (Backpacking America's Last True Wilderness):
I didn't know Eric and I discovered casually his video surfing the web, anyway he interpreted exactly the sense of Commons Creative licence (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/
) I propose for all my MP3s files availebe for free download on my website http://solyaris.altervista.org
: what I ask to people would use my music as soundtrack is simply to mention my data exactly as Eric did: inside the video an dpossibly also in the comment notes outside the video. I would happy that people could mention all details (title of track, album, my name, website URL), or at least the website link could be sufficient.
Generally speaking I wish my music could be used as soundtrack for a film or documentary concerning high altitude mountains climbing (snow/ice/rock/mixt) but, please note, I'm not too happy that my music could comment sport activities in a strict sense, indeed I'd be very happy that my music could be used to comment Nature in a general sense, I mean the "Wilderness", the contemplation and the lack of hurry, the lack of time-counting ...
I'd eventually please ask to be contacted via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org
) possibly before (or also after) publishing the video; just because I'm curious and I'm simply happy to see my music is listened and used. In cases of a project really interesting I'm available to gift my music (maybe the new one) also via CDr .. even if this is expensive to do my side and I'd appreciate if people could possibly purchase my CDs (even if this is a bit wearing), but that's a form of acknowledgement of value of my music... I hope you understand is absolutely not a commercial convenience because the niche of "our" market ... of my music especially ;-)
BTW, Another beautiful Eric's video with my music:
BTW, my new work coming soon (2011) I'm restoring the fender rhodes! ;-)
