I released a filk hymn album. It includes a complete songbook and is released with the Creative Commons Attribution license. The topics covered include references to common and obscure science fiction and fantasy fandoms, but the names themselves are gently scrubbed.

Shipping Containers is an experimental art album exploring copyright in the guise of filk hymns.

The premise is a lonely space traveler thinks about what might be in store for the colony ship when they get there, but due to copyright restrictions only music made before 1923 is available on-board. So, he combines the two.

(Is it an album with an included songbook? Is it a songbook with included demos? Whatever it is, it is free and you can use/abuse it as you like.)

The categories on the side list neither "Music" nor "Filk". Is that an omission on purpose or accident?

This is #hymn #filk . The 12 song album is released with a #CreativeCommons Attribution license as well as a complete #songbook . (Along with MIDI tracks for each song. We try to make it easy to re-use.)
