Everything and Nothing / Re: What should a small record label do?
« on: January 30, 2008, 06:07:12 PM »
While I appreciate that a lot of people will hear the music who would not otherwise have bought it. And that may lead to later sales.

I also know that a lot of people who would have bought an album, did a search first and found it for free, and so did not buy it. This for sure happens as well. And probably much more than we think.

It should be up to the artist, and label, responsible for the music to decide whether they want to make that music available for free ... not  anyone else.

Looks to me like this blog is primarily a way for the blog owner to get kickbacks/commission from Rapidshare.

Not sure what the best thing to do is ... beyond an email or two.

I don't have a myspace page.
Maybe I should get an award for not joining the herd !

Personally, I find the Forum itself close to real-time. Not sure I'd use chat.

Thanks for the links, Alan.
The music has a fine beauty to it.

There has been the separation of Databoem and DataObscura on the horizon for me. Taking a while still because Dennis in Holland doesn't have his new Databloem store ready. I'm pleased with my new Dataobscura / Blue oasis site though.

Looking to put some great releases out this year. A new Kwook is almost ready, and a new Nunc Stans is just around the corner ... its full of vast frozen expanses. Great stuff.

I will start work on a new Lammergeyer project very soon.

I've been moving my studio into a nice bright big room ... slowed everything down for me, but is now looking super functional.

Planning to do a number of house renovations in the spring ... looking forwad to it. I'm a practical guy.

And planning a big european trip in early summer. We live in Canada, but my wife was brought up in Germany, and I'm English. So always great to go back when we can.

That's what comes to mind.

Get the Infraction vinyl series in full swing
Improve the house, sell the house, & get another that comfortably fits my wife and I and our little 8 mo. old girl
Start running again
Take an overdue vacation outside of Ohio.  3 years of anesthesia school with little time off, has made me extremely dull.  That's a fact.

Get caught up on the backlog of things to listen to.

I think that's it for now - seems semi-achievable.


The vinyl move is an interesting one, Jason. Will that be for a different style of music than we are used to from Infraction?

Good luck with your plans !

As someone once said, the great stuff doesn't always strike you at first.

Many thanks, Joe :)  I had been meaning to email you about Winterhouse
since you had not posted anything on it ... you had me worried !

Its an album I always really enjoy when I put it on, and I have the distance
from it whereby its just an album for me, that I did 50% is not a factor.

Hope to be working on another Winterhouse album with Robert this year.

I caught a fair bit (then had to go out) ... enjoyable mellow stuff.
And pretty good quality sound from Stillstream.

Yep, that sure is a minimal setup you have there :)

Now on for those interested :)

« on: January 26, 2008, 04:49:26 PM »
Today

- Saafi Brothers: Supernatural  (fine beat-dance stuff)
- Justin Vanderberg: In waking moments  (Hypnos SS) (a first listen, and strikes me as an accomplished and interesting piece of work.)
- Taylor Dupree: Stil.  (very listenable minimalism)
- Deaf Center: Pale ravine  (always goes down well here)

1617
I'll make of point of tuning in at 11pm for some of it.

You are right, a section under this Wide Wide World called "Gear: Recording & Playing" or something like that to keep all gear posts together.

Drone Zone at www.SomaFM.com is usually good for that style.
