Did you read that he quited making music because of illegal downloads in russia?
Such a fool. I am sorry to say that, but what was he expecting? Becoming the
new Steve Roach or what?
Sorry to say that but I think the fool is rather the one who can't read correctly some sentences on Myspace and write imbecilities on a forum
What is the connection between "illegal downloads in russia" and "becoming the new Steve Roach"
I am not even sure IREZUMI knows who is Steve Roach, he is a techno DJ and is not so interested in ambient. But considering the fact IREZUMI became very popular with just one release, who knows, in 5 years he could have been the new Steve Roach So I rather think Irezumi is heroic for quitting
Manu stopped IREZUMI partly because of the "ethical" aspect of the filesharing craze around his CD. Do you know the details of what happened? surely not.
Do you know what "ethic" means? It has nothing do to with money or popularity or Steve Roah you know.
That's really strange because I can remember you was not very cool when Hana refused to trade some copies of the fool IREZUMI CDs with some of your CD-R or when she was not interested in your demo
First post here. I see. Seems like my post has bothered you quiet a lot. Thats funny in some Way. I can clear a few things for you.
First of all i have read the whole myspace thread he posted. No Words about the way he wrote it.
Snowblood and I condemn all internet users who take pride and joy in offering my music to download for free and more importantly without the permission of the rights holders.
We are not a a tool used to carve out your own special sense of self.
I am sick of it all so I stop IREZUMI for the moment.
And if i say thats foolish, then i mean foolish. So stop telling me what to think about his decision.
Thats the first thing. The thing with Steve Roach was a joke, because i think he was a bit to
optimistic with his Music. Did he thought that he can become the new Steve Roach with one CD?
Why did he quiet his "Ambient" Project then? Is he making music just in terms of selling cds or
what? And why is the making an Ambient CD, when he is "not so interested" in Ambient Music?
Making Money? No. So tell me why he stopped making music under this alias? Because of illegal
downloads? because people did not give him credit when they illegally downloaded his cd? I dont
get it. I released 5 CDs till now and each and everyone of them is illegally available on the Internet.
Did i quit making Music? no. Want to know why? Because i am passionate about making "my" Music
and i dont care if 10 People buy my CD and 200 download it. So no bad feelings for him.
That's really strange because I can remember you was not very cool when Hana refused to trade some copies of the fool IREZUMI CDs with some of your CD-R Grin or when she was not interested in your demo Grin
I dont know whats so funny about trading cd-r's with cds? Now i can see your true colors.
You are one of those elitist people who think that a cd is more worth then a cd-r. I got you.
And i also got Hana. And trust me, i was as polite as it gets and never mentioned a bad word
about either the label or the artists. But i had that impression since i first "met" this label.
