Some very nice designs. The price is outrageous, but I'm not that surprised given it's a niche product.

Also, I think that if you give something away once, people may be unwilling to pay for something in the future.
and he also might decide the $600 or $1500 or $3000 he might make is a lesser consideration than the possibility of getting 5,000 people to hear his work as a free download, rather than just hundreds who might have bought it.Exposure is the main reason I release through CC. Sure, a lot of people might download my stuff casually, listen to one track and just delete it afterward. But at the same time, I know that there's a lot of people downloading it, enjoying it and keeping in their library.
hearing a recording of a small dog constantly barking and what sounds like someone urinating on a sidewalk looped for minutes on end can catch one off guard and start the questions comingHaha! Wow, that does sound irritating. I understand completely your thoughts on whether the artist is trying to express something important to them, or just trying so hard to be different that they fall flat on their face because it's horrible music that nobody could enjoy.
maybe my receiver has some kind of internal gizmo that automatically "adjusts" quieter soundsMy amp has a setting like that. It's called Midnight Mode. The idea is you have the volume fairly low, so it brings up the quieter parts so you can still hear it. No chance a settings like that is on?
That's because the piece is not in fact by Thomas Tallis, a 16th c. church composer, but by Ralph Vaughan Williams, an early 20th c. secular fellerHeh, sorry I guess you misunderstood. I know that was written by Vaughan Williams. My point was the piece doesn't sound at all like Tallis' style to me. However, I haven't listened to THAT much Tallis so maybe that's why.
But for sheer dramatic (and emotive) import I'd go for Maurice Duruflé's Requiem. Its beautiful and sublime.Absolutely!
