Its another way for the majors to make money fast, why bother making a cd when people( the younger generation) only want a track or two. My kids who are 20, 18 and 16 buy downloads, but they don't buy downloads of whole albums, no its a track here and a track there!! My wife and I buy them Cds in the hope that they will "learn" but to be honest its lost on them. I showed them a vinyl lp a few months ago,
ooh thats cool, what do you do with it?
Well you play it on this ( a turntable) and you sit and listen to it.
What do you do while your listening to it?
Nothing, you SIT and LISTEN
Don't have time to do that

Part 2 here :-

Hope you enjoy this one also and thanks for looking :)

Here is a link to an video excerpt from my recent live performance at Awakenings, Burton on Trent, UK

Hope you enjoy it and thanks for looking :)

Saturday 22nd October 2011

Held at:

Paget High School
Business & Enterprise College
Burton Road
Burton on Trent
DE14 3DR

Advance tickets can be purchased from the website. Unless otherwise noted, the ticket price includes a FREE mp3 Virtual Ticket that will be made available shortly after the gig, these will only be available to purchase online until the day before the gig.

If you cannot attend you may wish to purchase the Virtual Ticket to get the mp3 download

All line-ups subject to change, check website for latest details

The 2nd piece is Steve Roach's "The Unbroken Promise" originally released on a 1993 artist compilation, "The Promises of Silence" on Projekt. It is available on "Truth and Beauty: Lost Pieces Volume 2" along with "Aftermath".

How did I miss that? I should have let the CD play through instead of turnng it off after the first track, not thinking the other track would be on the same cd. ;)

I am amazed at the speed the changes have taken place, it must have been a hell of a lot of hard work. Well done all concerned.
I must admit when I first saw the new look and all those headings I thought "Oh no where do I find stuff", but over the last few days things have settled down, the headings have been trimmed down and it is looking really good.
I do agree in general that the 2 gearheads sections could be combined into 1 section, therefore trimming the headings down a little more.
On the whole then very successful and as I said earlier, well done :)

Ordered :) :) :) :) :)

I'm loving "The Light Goes Out", it's simply amazing...looking forward to the downloads... :)

Thank you dnessa25, I am also planning to make that track available in a sampler of my music which will be available as a free download in higher quality format.  Probably towards the end of this year.

Your welcome shadyj. Trying to track down the second piece as well but might take a bit longer :)

The first piece is called Aftermath from The Lost Pieces Vol 2 (Truth and Beauty) by Steve Roach :)

Thats a really good first video Andy, some beautiful pictures and nicely timed crossfades. I think the video and music match perfectly. Excellent :)

I too like the Hypnos Forum as it is, it is clear and organised and not "in your face"
But I also like the suggestions to be able to embed Soundcloud and You Tube and I like Tomas' suggestion on a section for collaborations (a Hypnos Forum collaboration CD might be a good idea?)I know EM Portal did something similar.
The forum can tend to be quiet, I have noticed particularly at weekends, but that is because people have other things to do as well as visit here. I would also think as most of us are musicians and have full time jobs, making music not being the full time job, when you do get your free time you tend to use it by spending time with family, wife kids etc, making music and visiting forums to catch up. Being quiet is not a bad thing as I like to catch up on posts that are months, even years old to see what I have missed. You don't have to comment every day. I tend to comment if I feel I have something useful to say or add, like now, for instance. The self promotion thing kind of tends to happen with every forum I am a member of, and probably goes on in lots of other forums too, not just EM, lets face it, this is such a small field, how else are you going to let like minded people know about your latest masterpiece, take out ads on TV or in the lastest fashionable mag, I think that is beyond most if not all of us here. The self promotion I see here, and yes I do it as well, is not excessive and is generally well handled. I am going on a bit now, so to sum up,

Hypnos is great the way it is, it would be nice to embed music and video, a section for collaborations/ideas would be nice and a collaborative Hypnos Forum Members CD would be nice too (which actually doesn't involve a change in the forum as that could get underway now) :)
