Learning Music is a band from Los Angeles. They write and record an album every month. In partnership with vosotros, all of their music is licensed under Creative Commons and offered via a subscription series called Learning Music Monthly. Subscribers can receive a CD every month in their mailbox - or donate any amount for digital access to the band's entire catalog. They also post mix stems and handwritten sheet music on their "contribute" page to encourage remixes and covers.All In A Summer's Day (Thanks, John!)
But the fourth issue, called Geochemistry, is more than just an album of songs. It's a collection of music videos from ten different Los Angeles filmmakers. Unlike the process for most music videos, these songs were written after the films were completed, creating sounds to fit the images, rather than the other way around.
This month's video single, "All In A Summer's Day", features brilliant animation by Tony Moore.

I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
