Burnstation s a mobile copying station which - as it travels through suburban spaces - supports the free distribution music and audio. It is a software package as well as a local network. But above all BURN STATION is a social event which draws people together so they can listen, select and copy net label and net radio audio files with a Copyleft Licence. BURN STATION is an open source and non-commercial project involving the new means of free networked distribution. It is based on the BURN STATION software which was developed by Platoniq and Rama as a 100% Free software. BURN STATION aims to establish links between the media space and the physical space of the city. BURN STATION is an open source, copyleft model project, an experiment in practical gift economics aiming to reflect on the understandings, sensibilities and entry of Open Source ideas into other social, cultural, and artistic practices. The starting point is the development of a system of distribution as a mobile self-service. It is designed as a local database for audio that automatizes the process of selection, listening and recording of files. The system is managed by free software which has been programmed for the project and is published and distributed under the GNU GPL Licence.
