    CC mash-up credit??!


    Hi all you savvy people!

    I have an urgent question, regarding an entire soundpiece/multitrack overlapping mash-up of numerous mixed samples from freesound, and my own: Would the mixed file then be its own soudtrack as a "whole" that im free to use for a dance piece?? This will be performed for an audience at a festival. There isn't enough room to list a whole whack of sound samples on the program, or so the admin for the show tell me, so perhaps I'll have to start from scratch. (I thought initially, that a mash-up would be considered "creative alteration" of the material, but now that i have read posts, i'm not certain that's the case.)

    Can anyone clarify whether an entire list of users is needed, or, just an aknowledment of material sampled from "freesound" under CC license???
    (ie: Sounds in this arragement, courtesey of Freesound.org, under CC lisence.)

    Welcome on board,

    This is what the licenses is saying;

    if you past this link in google it can translate it in your language.

    I hope it helps you.

    Look at the forum for more explanation. search eg. on legal use It gives 74 matches

    To hear, you first have to listen

    I am still baffled by all the jargon, at one point in the code it seems as if it says listing the liscense of the sound samples and the website is enough. But I dont want to do anything illagal, and from the looks of the other comments on here it might be that i cant use 12 samples without listing title, author, liscense, website..etc. But also was unsure whether the attribution link provided for a list of sound samples is enough to put on the brochure/program. If I was to list them on the link and direct people there, would that be enough???

    Thanks!! -Sophia
