An Argument Against Free Downloads

A lengthy, but beautifully written argument about streaming sites.

My last CD was in 2005, 7 years ago. One of the reasons I'm not making music all the time is because I have to spend most of my time doing things that actually generate revenue.

I will again be participating in 30 Days of Creativity, but I'll be putting my work up on my design blog this year.

Looping Around

I was looking through my audio files on my hard drive last night, and that morphed into a bit of a loop building session. Having this rhythm groove set on repeat and adding layers and sounds on top of it was very hypnotic. Listening to it the next morning, I hear places that certainly need some editing and some bits that I quite like and want to expand into a more complete work.  I have no idea where this is going to go yet.

I just want to add that I have loved Steve Tibbets since I discovered his "Yr" CD at the library and when he came out with his own loop library I was ecstatic.

A very good piece on the artist/band bio. I need to redo mine for this year. One reason this is so important for your website is because journalists writing about you are going to borrow heavily from your website in their article. So making it a combo "bio/press release" is saving you a lot of work by having to create both (or saving you a lot of money by not having to pay for two things), and killing two birds with one stone.
