A while back I stumbled across an "open source" band, an umbrella name that allowed anyone to perform as that band, but I cannot for the life of me remember it. I think it was primarily an experimental noise act, but at this point I can't be sure. Please, Metafilter, help me find it!
I am putting together a slide show of some photos of our recent holiday to Europe and would like to add some theme music to appropriate photos. Is there a site that has free/open source no-cost music that might be suitable to add to a slide show? The format of tracks is not that important (mp3 is fine) but I would prefer a site that had tracks sorted by type/genre eg. Italian, or holiday, etc.

What's the best digital keyboard for $500? What about for $1k? I'm not a hard-core musician, but I enjoy sitting down at a piano and just screwing around. I took some lesions when I was a kid. I'd like to be able to hook it up to a computer and use it with training software, as well as for composition, but I'm assuming that's a pretty standard feature these days. [more inside]

Does this song sound familiar: it was played on XM radio's uncensored hip-hop/rap station- it's essentially a narrative which repeats the phrase/theme "you don't know what it was like to. . ." (e.g., one line was "be a slave in the south"), and the chorus/hook basically repeats something to the effect of clap your hands/stomp your feet. I could have sworn the DJ said it was by "Southern Folks" and called "Crunkified," but after googling these phrases to no avail, I think those must have been more general descriptive terms. It has a very traditional sound/structure, almost gospel-sounding (and none of the more obvious super-slowed down "crunk" sound).

I want to learn to play keyboard, a continuation of sorts of this question. When I say this, I mean a MIDI controller - for the sake of being a midi controller, not as a stepping stone to piano. My goal lies primarily in doing something creative musically (dare I say "compostition" at some point down the line) with software synths played live (by me, not a tracker). So the answers to that last question have sent me on my way theory wise, but how do I learn to actually, you know, move my fingers around? [more inside]

We are sending a capsule into deep space to carry a sample of America as it was in the 60's and 70's. We can include 12 CDs (or albums transferred to CD) to reflect popular music of the time (1960 through 1979.) What 12 CDs best represent what was happening then?
