Thanks for all the suggestions, guys...

 The Rustling Of Leaves seems to be on several lists, and I remember that also being one of my favorites. That may be the one I plug in first tonight. And Lord Of The Starfields is indeed a beautiful track... and I completely forgot about Nocturnes- that was terrific.

I think Spotify would prefer to pay less.  I know Pandora is still trying to get their amount lowered.  Sam at Projekt has decided to pull all Projekt albums off Spotify.  Trying to follow what Rusty at SomaFM and other internet broadcasters go through to keep going is amazing. It seems to be every attempt by any artist to get around the major system - is blocked.  At current issue is ISRC codes in mp3's - new legislation is on the table to require stations to report it - yet Rusty's got a massive library with no ISRC codes in the mp3's.

I've moved from CD Baby to a company called Indigoboom for digital distro - I just haven't had anything new to release.  (which has been a very long time now...)

ooh, ah, which ones to choose? in no particular order....with a bit of a cheat...

The Dreaming of Shells
Dreams (original 3" disc set)
Three Lights at the End of the World
Bardos
Athlit

+ don't forget the 'compilations' - Time Fragments Vol 1 - 6.

+ collaberations:
Liquid Ghosts - Camera Obscura.
Wouivre - with Klaus Weise.
Nocturnes - with Paradin.

and I've just remembered (how could I forget): The Rustling of leaves.....

added - just read all the other lists - 'Rustling' appears in a high number of them....

John said 'Spotify barely pays' and while that's true, they do pay and that amount is on the increase. Through CDBaby it takes months for royalties to come through, a lot of these distribution outfits really do pay nothing ! iTunes does the most.
Bandcamp is a different thing really.

Eugor - there's a fairly long wait between release and payments flowing in...  usually 3 months to 6 months depending on service.  Also - unless you get a seriously massive amount of plays on spotify - expect payments to be very small.  Spotify barely pays. 

iTunes and Bandcamp sales seem to have the most traction.

Here's a rundown of my payments ... took 9 months to hit my $50 threshhold - this is from CD Baby.

Everything and Nothing / Any other photography people out there ?
« Last post by petekelly on July 29, 2014, 05:21:16 AM »
I'm something of a hobbyist photographer, in that I just do it for the fun I get from it. Saying that, I spend a lot of time doing it. I'm currently using a Sony RX100 and a Sony R1 - both good cameras. These cameras aren't the latest and greatest, but they suit my purposes. I see a gear lust analogy in the photography world, where (for example) some folks over at DP review are constantly buying and selling the newest and the best gear and are never being satisfied with the results they get (technically).

What I do is essentially a documentation of things I see out on my walks, my observations of the world I see (mostly the rural environment in the North-east of the UK). I'm keen on macro photography, as it shows a hitherto unseen world of detail for me. Lastly, my dog 'Maxa' is a much photographed subject.

I probably post about 5% of the shots I take, I try to be selective. I'm learning new techniques all the time and I've recently got into filters - infra-red, graduated color density etc on the RX100. I intend to do more Video work further down the line, as the RX100 takes pretty good video footage.

Anyway, there's a fair bit of my work over at my blog (under the photography category)

Now Playing / Re: Currently listening, part 1
« Last post by Julio Di Benedetto on July 29, 2014, 03:54:19 AM »
And now back to our regular programming  ;)



Could be my favorite Sakamoto collaboration.....the Fennesz treatments work so well with the piano.  More experimental than Sakamoto & Willets excellent Ancient Future but in a very good way and more accessible than their 12k release Ocean Fire.  Also theres an element in Sakamoto's piano that is reminiscent for me of his film music adding a melodic smoothness to the Fennesz glitch.

Got my cd from Amoeba in San Francisco, had a hard time finding it..... flac is available from Boomkat  http://boomkat.com/cds/33897-fennesz-sakamoto-cendre

Spirals Of Time - Still my favorite
Mare Vaporum - I have always resonated with this one
Athlit - the Cd that sparked my interest in working with Gigi
The Rustling Of Leaves - this one is special to me as I have vivid memories of lying in bed in Gigi's guest house listening to this on a Cd Walkman and drifting off and thinking how beautiful and pastel it was.
Dreamfields - please excuse what could appear to be shameless self promotion but, this album is special to me due to the deeply personal level of back and forth collaboration on this release. Gigi kept calling it his most psychedelic work, and the concept of the directions was his. I also have memories of taking a daylong retreat out in nature and listening to the final mix and master and being completely lost in the bliss of the moment of the atmospheres blending with nature. He was really pushing for avant guard sounds, movement and startling artifacts and instances on this one.
Bardo - I will pick a 6th one to be fair, I like this one for its sheer intense power.
