I have a friend who created a project for recording royalty-free music, for use in live streaming (e.g. game streaming like Twitch.tv). The artists are paid but the music is open. Here are the links to the project:
I described the MDX to him, and he’s excited to also share the stem files from his project, free and open for all demixing and music research.
I’ve never created an academic dataset before - what sort of steps should I follow to ensure we do this properly? My first thoughts are to upload a zip file on a static GitHub pages website.
I believe as the project grows, the zip file of this dataset will grow to contain the new stems (and I’ll probably periodically change the zip file to include the new tracks).
Maybe I can call it the “OnAir.Music-stems-v1”, v2, v3, etc.
