Decksclaimer

Posted by Cameron Vanderzanden on . Updated . Tags: meta, movement through thought, music, website.

I've heard from friends that this blog is starting to show up in search engine results, so I guess I should address the elephant in the room. In 2016 I spent some time thinking about how to responsibly host an online mix series and came to the following conclusions:

  • Be enthusiastic about the tracks,
  • don't accept money for the show,
  • provide detailed tracklists and show notes,
  • present music in mixed or altered form,
  • and always link back to where the music can purchased.

Movement Through Thought started in 2017 with those rules/goals in mind. I believe I've more-or-less upheld those points. (Notably I've never accepted money for mixes hosted here, and have no plans to do so in the future).

Also worth noting: my audio signal chain is pretty bad. It's all worn-out DJ gear leading to the line input on a PC motherboard. My setup adds an unfortunate amount of noise to all of these recordings.

Weareie put it better than I ever could in their decksclaimer (mirrored at archive.org):

The mixes featured on this website are produced and distributed in the spirit of promoting interest and further exploration of the music in question, and not for exploitation for profit or personal gain.

It's worth reading Weareie's decksclaimer in full at either of those links above. I agree with it completely.

To the artists out there: If your music was featured here that means I like it, I want people to know it exists, and I want people to buy it. If your work was included in one of these mixes and you're unhappy about it then please contact me at cvanderz@gmail.com so we can talk about it.
