WOOT! Just barely after they have cooled their heels after their sell-out concert, my fav SG rock trio, Lunarin, announced that The Sky (Algiers) from Duae (2010), is available for remixing under a BY-NC-SA license.
From their post:
Even before Duae was released, our friend Ivan suggested that we make one of the songs available for free download for remixing. We thought this was an excellent idea. The only question then was which song to make available for remixing.
Shortly after the album was released, we conducted a poll to ask people which was their favourite track off “Duae”. Interestingly enough, there was an overwhelming response in favour of The Sky (Algiers). We therefore decided to make The Sky (Algiers) available for free download for some of you peeps to take a shot at remixing it.

Ah yes, I’ll shamelessly admit here that I’m that Ivan who dropped them the suggestion (I’m the community manager for Creative Commons Singapore, btw).
I knew they were supportive towards Creative Commons, since I heard them speak at this library event. But I wasn’t sure they would be open towards releasing one of their track.
They said they liked the idea.
And now they’ve put action behind words.
You can listen to their “live” performance version of ‘The Sky’, from their 1 Oct 2010 concert:
p.s. I’ll certainly be doing a remix. Don’t know what, but will think of something.
