Ten Ton Chicken encourages the taping and trading of our live performances. We feel that each show is unique and want to extend the ability to our fans to recreate the live experience long after the performance is over.
To do your own live recordings here are some things to keep
- Tapers may tape from any ticketed seating location in the venue, unless specific taper tickets are available. To obtain any designated taper tickets, contact the venue's box office.
- You should be self-contained in terms of microphones and power. Please don't count on the venue to provide power or access to the sound board.
- We ask that you please be considerate of those around you by not obstructing anyone else's view or sound of the performance.
- Video taping and still photography are also permitted; please just avoid the use of a flash.
All taping must be for personal use only, which may
include trading (via analog or digital tape, CD, or digital file transfer).
Recordings may be traded only for an equivalent amount of similar media
(cassettes or CDs, pre-recorded or blank). Sharing CDs and MP3s with your
friends, posting onto peer-to-peer networks like Gnutella or using sites
like etree.org or furthurnet.org
is encouraged. Regardless of any expenses incurred, no money may ever
be exchanged as part of a trade; however, stamped, self-addressed envelopes
may be included with blank media.
Audience taping at Ten Ton Chicken concerts is authorized
for non-commercial purposes only. Unauthorized sale, duplication and/or
distribution are strictly forbidden. All Ten Ton Chicken performances
and recordings are the exclusive property of Ten Ton Chicken. All rights
reserved. The rights to record Ten Ton Chicken performances set forth
in this policy constitute an express, revocable license. We reserve the
right to withdraw our sanction of recording, tape trading and/or non-commercial
digital audio file transfers on a case specific basis or in general, as
we deem necessary. No waiver of any copyright or trademark right is intended.
Just in case you are not into the art of sound recording,
we record most of our shows with a live mix of the sound board and stereo
room mics sampled into PCM 44.1kHz/16bit computer files. These files are
encoded to 192Kbps MP3s and uploaded to our site within a few days of
each live performance. Check the Setlists section
to access the MP3s for each show.
Thank you for helping Ten Ton Chicken spread its wings!
