*Art cannot be created or destroyed — only remixed.
- Kirby Ferguson, TED Talks
As creators take root in what has come before and arrange them into their own masterpieces, OurSong is proud to introduce Remixable NFTs, to grant artists an easy way to build upon other artists’ work, and to be credited and compensated when someone builds upon yours.
We’re also launching a Monthly Remix award series, where each month, we take a look at all remixes on OurSong, and celebrate the best artists and creators spearheading this movement with the tools we were privileged to provide.
We hereby introduce OurSong Acadamy's 2022 Remix of the Year Award - join us now as we build a remixable community for the next generation of creatives.

What is a Remixable NFT?
These are pre-loaded remix licenses for the OurSong community to purchase and get creative with. Once purchased, you can use these to create your own hits!
- For musicians, creators, beat-makers, producers, and anyone really: You can now access a pool of great content on OurSong and create your works in an NFT format. No need for lengthy authorization to use or worry about copyright issues.
- If you have a tune, beat, track, or vocals - you can now share it with the OurSong community by turning on the “Remix” setting. This allows people to use creation and ‘remix’ it into something new. Great way to jam with the community and make a buck or two. As you’ll get the revenue split from the remixed derivative creations.

Why are you giving away a ton of Ledgers?
Cuz cold wallets matter (looks at FTX).
I’m also participating in Fucked Up Summer. Am I automatically enrolled in this as well?
Yes. As long as you made a Remix NFT, you’re in. How amazing is that 💕
