Free to be DIY for you and me....

Free to be DIY for you and me....

Authors Michael Dean and Chris Caulder have a released a new creative commons book outling music creation from anywhere and everywhere from your backpack.

the author states:

I came up with the idea for this book, Digital Music – DIY Now! in early 2005. I’d just finished writing three books by myself and making two movies and wanted to do something different. I wanted to write another book, not by myself, but with some really smart buddies.

I wrote a proposal, pitched it to my agent, Matt Wagner of Fresh Books, and he secured a publisher, Que. Que is a well known publisher with a lot of decent tech books out, and they get their books into everywhere.

Que liked my idea of writing with several other experts, and I thought I’d enjoy the challenge of working with others. It seemed like a nice change from the isolation of writing a book by myself.

So head on over to their website and check it out. The book comes in two .PDF versions.
