Well.....

I am Phrozenlight  ;D
better known as Bert Hulshoff.
I live in the Netherlands.
I am a big fan of space music, especially long floating tracks.
I create my own music which is based on the sounds of very early Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream. My tracks have mostly a playtime of ca 78 min  :P

Beside being a solo artist I form together with Eppie E Hulshof (not related) "Dutch Space Mission".

I am maybe one of the biggest lurker on the forum.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Dutch Space Mission Live Album (spam)
« on: October 27, 2008, 05:59:44 AM »
Dutch Space Mission Live Album is now available at MusicZeit

http://www.downloadplatform.com/dutch_space_mission/

On this live album, recorded in the Netherlands on 11 October 2008 at E-Live, Dutch Space Mission takes the listeners on a journey never done before.
It was their first live performance, remastered directly from the soundboard recording made with a digital audio recorder.
The audience parts were taken of a "bootleg" recording by mr.P., giving it even more of a "Live" feeling.
The bonus track "Empty Spaces" is recorded live at Smokescreen Studio on 24 October.

This album will also soon be available as double CD-r on AmbientLive Records

...Probably since it's ROIC that I look at more than others (RIOC = return on investment capital, i.e. gear and software mostly).

That is why I have choosen for the use of freeware and a simple synth and web releases instead of CD ;)
BTW I think having more and expensive gear does not make better music. (IMHO)

But as long as I'm a) having fun, b) enjoying myself and c) putting something out that at least some folks enjoy (I love hearing from the few who've purchased in the past and ask when a new one will be out!) I am content.

complity agree 8)

Getting positive reactions... that's the reason to go on with making music  ;)
Getting negative reactions is also a good reason to go on, I still remember what the critics wrote about Schulze and TD  ;D

Of course I'd love to make a few grand or so a year on this but I know better ;-)..

I love MONEY too  ;D ;D

I'm not sure what you think was "rubbish". Surely a lot of people do in fact do that. Yes ?


I mean ".. expects to be paid for that work just as people do in their own types of daily 9-5pm jobs" that is rubbish.

Maybe Steve does that, but I could do the same, and a lot of those "amateurs" do it also. But it is not a good reason to let people pay for your music ( in my eyes)
But everyone is free to make their choice to let people pay for their Art.

For me it is important to let my "music" distributed, so every can listen to it, not because the time I spend to produce it  ;D

A lot of people stringing samples together and making some music in their spare time are happy to just put it out there for free.
You won't see, for example, Steve Roach doing that. He's a professional musician who puts a LOT of time and work into his music. He expects to be paid for that work just as people do in their own types of daily 9-5pm jobs.

rubbish;
I work 40 hours in a week to earn money for living,
I am working 25+ hours per week on my music (incl. the weekends, no holidays counted)
(my wife does not like it   :'(  )

On year basis it would be:
work 1700 hours
music 1300 hours (half of my holidays included)
so at the end of the year the difference is not that big ;)


I think free music is ok, but I like also see some money coming to me as a sort of reward.
That's why I release "free" and "not free" albums, or why I have made the possibility to donate  ;D

Problem is when you make your music for your living selling albums will never pay out.
You must give concerts, workshop etc to get money enough to have a living of it.

I don't have a problem with people mentioning that they're listening to their own music but this thread should absolutely not be used for self-promotion.  If you want to promote your own music, there's a section of this forum designed for that.  I'm going to edit Phrozenlight's post and remove the "advertisement" elements.





that's alright for me  ;D ;D
told you it was spam  ;)

now playing : Klaus Schulze - Totentag

EMI boss loves file sharing

Wishes they would stop suing

By Stewart Meagher: Thursday, 03 April 2008, 7:43 AM

THE BOSS of EMI's digital unit has come out saying that he is dead set against suing fans for file sharing.

Douglas Merrill, who is a refugee from Google, has told CNET that he is passionate about data and he has seen data that shows that file sharing is actually good for artists.

He said he is not sure about this, but he does not think the music business should be working out ways to stop it all the time. He said he was generally speaking against suing fans.

He added that, obviously, there is piracy that is quite destructive but again the data shows that, in some cases, file sharing might be OK.

Merrill added that what the record companies need to do is understand when filesharing is good and when it is not good. But he added that suing fans didn't feel like a winning strategy.

He is still mulling over his plans for success. The idea he is looking at is to adopt subscription or ISP fees. Merrill sees both of these as interesting. He is also considering targeted advertising but he does not want to limit his options.

Either way many people think that Merrill's approach should have been adopted by the music industry around the time that it was suing Napster.

but maybe this contains the solution against "illegal" sharing.

The idea he is looking at is to adopt subscription or ISP fees.
