I just ran across these photos today of Steve Roach's studio taken about two years ago. A lot of things have already changed in the Timeroom since I took these pics.

Unfortunately a Russian site currently sees fit to reproduce a portrait of Fred Frith I did that they hacked from a legit site. It's just a thumbnail but the practice is widespread.
To play devil's advocate for a moment, just for fun, a fairly good argument could be made that virtually all of the people who downloaded it would never have purchased it, even if the tracks had never been available for download from any source.
If my initial post comes across as whiny, I should clarify that I really meant this in more of a general "what should a small label do?"
Today, this blog is linking to downloads at 320kbps quality, of a couple of Hypnos CDs that we sell for $8.99. I do understand the argument that sometimes, people hear something they've downloaded or reeived for free, and they like it so much they end up buying it. I also understand that many who download it and listen, would never have purchased the CD in the first place, so in such cases there is no "cost" of a lost sale.
My bass player in my first band had something like that. Interestingly - it could stand straight up and still play.
For the listener as well the attention span remains throughout the complete listening session, not mentioning the fact that you've to get up and flip the record to listen to the 2nd side. This all contributes to a much more lively listening experience.

The hopeful news Loren is that this was a merger VS a buyout / takeover. TC still retains their autonomy. Maybe this means we will finally see the resurrection of Oberheim in a Powercore softsynth version.

I moved this post of Loren's over from the "Everything and Nothing" area into this section specifically devoted to "now playing" lists. I'll 'PM' Loren about this move in case he never checks out the Forum's main screen!
Some day I'll get a Sarod, that's what I really want.

I've noticed a lot of people in this thread (and in past "gear shot" type threads) - not everyone, but many people have a tendency towards indian, native american, aboriginal, african, etc... types of decorations
