Sweet idea: open source music.
In the same way that compiled code can't really be edited or modified, it is difficult to work with mixed down finished music. It is difficult/impossible to isolate the individual tracks and do anything useful with them (not really an issue, since most music is copyrighted anyway).

Our idea is to have willing musicians and engineers producing music that is open and available for others to use, modify, and redistribute. The music would available in its raw individual tracks, so any or all of it could be used by other.
Sounds like an updated version of the mod community. I want other people to get this going so I can play with their tracks.

Maybe Buzz? (Ok, apparently one of the artists on Force Inc uses Buzz, I'm sold)
