Damien Riehl & Noah Rubin of All The Music
In this episode of CC's Open Minds, we sit down with programmer, musician, and copyright attorney Damien Riehl, and fellow musician and programmer, Noah Rubin, the creators of the All The Music project. Frustrated by accidental copyright infringement lawsuits stifling artists creativity, the dynamic duo teamed up to create an algorithm that would generate and save every possible melody, in order to claim the copyright, and then release it again to the public domain under CC0, which means they have “no rights reserved.” We dive into why they decided to take on this audacious project, how they did it, and how they are trying to help other musicians.

All of the artworks in the book were sourced from art museums and libraries with open access policies. Tyler offers his own compelling insights into Nature through new research into how Emerson's art experiences influenced the essay, and in turn how it informed American art well into the twentieth century. In this episode, we discuss Emerson’s understanding of landscape and the public commons, how it shaped American Art, and how it is still relevant to Creative Commons and the broader open movement today. Tyler shares top tips from a decades worth of podcasting experience and much more.
