Don't know how many have heard, but Jamendo has failed to raise their next round of financing and may be disappearing soon.  I think we should alert the Internet Archive that one of the largest libre music libraries may be in danger and ask them to work with Jamendo to create an archive.

Anne Wilson: Wind/Rewind/Weave

Email not displaying correctly? View it in your browser.

The Knoxville Museum of Art is delighted to present Wind/Rewind/Weave, a major exhibition of work by visual artist Anne Wilson. For three decades, Wilson has been regarded as an innovative and remarkable voice in the visual arts. Her work rests at the forefront of artwork connecting conceptualism and handiwork, activism and aesthetics. Through a diverse range of source materials and production methods, Wilson's practice extends the relational in terms of labor, collaboration, and identity construction.

Wind/Rewind/Weave investigates the global crisis of production and skill based textile labor through three major works: Rewinds, a new sculpture created entirely in glass; video documentation of Wind-Up: Walking the Warp, a 2008 performance in Chicago; and a large site-specific project, Local Industry, that takes the form of an active weaving/winding factory set up in the museum space.

Exhibition, Members Opening: January 21, 5:30pm

Meet the Artist for a public discussion, January 23, 3:00pm

Anne Wilson is a Chicago based visual artist who creates sculpture, drawing, video animations and installations that explore themes of time, loss, private and social rituals. She uses diverse source materials that are familiar and rich with cultural meanings. Wilson's work has been presented at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan; the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; and as part of the 2002 Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Wilson's art is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Art Institute of Chicago; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the Detroit Institute of Arts; the Museum of Glass, Tacoma; and the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan, among others. Wilson is the recipient of grants from the Driehaus Foundation, Artadia, the Tiffany Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Illinois Arts Council. Rhona Hoffman Gallery, Chicago, and Paul Kotula Projects, Detroit, represent Wilson's work. She is a Professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Re: Jamendo out of money

The article I read said they were looking for over $2 million in funding... not exactly within Kickstarter-ish funding range: http://eu.techcrunch.com/2010/01/07/digital-music-startup-jamendo-runs-out-of-steam-mulls-sale/

Re: Jamendo out of money

:) 


Unfortunately KS doesn't work for investment (which it sounds like they need), but reseeding might be an interesting proposition to their community since they already have all their contact information, etc.

Wikipedia just raised a ton of money via its users; I don't know how
large a user-base Jamendo has, but I've wished for a long time that
they'd have some sort of paid option for users. I really want to
support what they're doing, and I've always plugged them when I can...
I hope they find a way to let me help them financially.

Re: Jamendo out of money

this.  I'm also optimistic that the techies among us can come up with an at least somewhat interesting, at least somewhat effective solution to at least archive their current content.  For example, index and start tracking all of their torrentzzzzzz.  Might be a fun project.
