is a web application announcing the last death anniversaries of composers before their works enter the public domain.

On the website you can browse composers’ death anniversaries.
There is a twitter-bot (@dead_composers) announcing the dates as they occur.
And you can subscribe to an ics-formatted calendar to include a comprehensive collection of composers’ death dates right into your digital calendar application. was built in the hope that artists and composers who – like me – work with material by others, will appreciate a way of exploring who’s work can be used freely and when.

Merry Christmas!
