I've really turned on to an interesting site http://www.macjams.com which is entirely devoted to independent, participant-produced music. The material on the site is routinely furnished under the Creative Commons licenses, free for non-commercial purposes.

(Don't forget the "s" in the site-name...)

The work on the site runs the absolute gamut of all musical styles, and although you do run into the occasional "turkey," some of the long-standing participants are professional musicians and composers who, for example, write musicals for a living. There is a tremendous amount of "mutual respect" here, and the community is international in scope.

When I am coding software, I usually click on the site and just hit the "Play" button on the box at the top of the home page which presents a random selection of the (so I have been told, "more than 100,000") songs that are there. Then, I can "zone out." I have never known what to expect and yet I have never been disappointed. There's plenty of stuff here that is absolutely professional in its composition and execution. Stuff that I have never dreamed of.

As the site-name implies, most participants are using Apple's GarageBand and/or Logic Pro tools in their work, but this isn't an "Apple-specific" site and therefore people do use all kinds of tools and platforms. Many of the projects are collaborations among multiple members, and there is obviously sufficient technical experience among the community to execute a commercial-grade work product.

Have a look in particular at the Blog section and listen to the songs in the various artist's showcase pages that you'll see, starting with the most-recent set which was published in late March. You'll see what I mean.

Highly recommended.

Exclamation

SLAYER!

Slayer. Sepultura. Tool. Pink Floyd. Rammstein. Marilyn Manson. OLD Metallica (Kill'em All, Master, Justice, Ride The Lightning, everything until the Black Album), not their new crap. Vivaldi. Beethoven. Nightwish. Paulina Rubio. Lots of stuff, but mainly heavy metal and classical strings.

For the last week I listened to the soundtrack for ``Requiem for a Dream'' by Darren Aronofsky.

For the previous week I listened to the music by Lydia Lunch (fifteen LPs and EPs from 1978 to 2009).

For the preceding week I listened to the album ``Mekan´k Destrukt´w Kommand÷h'' by Magma.

Usually I change CD in my player a few times a day but sometimes I listen the same CD all day long or even for a few consecutive days.

In general I listen to the twentieth century music: first of all rock, jazz, and classical.

Fabulous! Took me a little while/several listens to really get into Mike Oldfield. Ultimately I came to really really like it!

I was first turned onto him because that is the soundtrack to 'The Exorcist' which is one of my all-time favorite movies.

FYI: Tubular Bells II is extremely alike Tubular Bells I, but I is IMHO better than II, so if you are considering getting II, be forewarned that it's almost like buying a different version of I.
