Like Dave, I don't need one (have a Roku 3 on both TVs already) but ordered one for the $19 intro deal for Prime customers. I'll probably give it to my mom, so she can be introduced to the wonderful world of Netflix streaming.

I pre-ordered one as well.  I don't really need it as I have a roku on one tv and a PS3 on the other, but I couldn't resist at that price.  My college age son will be moving out soon(I hope) so he'll probably take the PS3 and then I get some use out of the fire stick.

Opfer is a new project by Dutch artist Ian Martin and Belgian Artist Sebastien Crusener and Monument is their first album. Ian Martin needs no introduction to fans of adventurous electronic music. His versatile style allowed him to release on illustrious labels such as Bunker, Abstract Forms or Further Records. Sebastien Crusener has provided all source material in form of field recordings for their project and Ian modelled an abstract, minimal and dark ambient album that showcases a bleakness and almost disturbing coldness but yet makes you feel safely encapsulated in a world of comfort and strange beauty. Additionally Sebastien has kindly provided some wonderful poetry that gives you more insight into the world of Opfer. Dark ambient at it's best.
150 manufactured hand numbered CDís in slim line dvd case. The first 100 copies include a limited sheet with poetry by Sebastien Crusener.
Digital release to follow 5-6 weeks after initial release.

Hi Julio,

thank you, I absolutely agree with you....
And believe it or not, but I don't like doing promotional work at all, I still think that the music should do the talking but I am afraid I have no choice but to do this.
It is unbelievably hard to get any attention and I need to sell a certain amount of copies to keep this label alive. I'm not in it for the money (the limitations of the releases should speak for this) but I also want to reach as much people as I can because I believe in this music and I feel sad when the artists I feature don't get the deserved attention....

As to come back to your question regarding digital, all the "standard" diametric. releases are available digitally at the usual places, the tapes are not. When you buy the tapes you get a download of the music after checkout in the diametric. shop.

Be my friend in Exile will release this on his Bandcamp page sooner or later....


Thank you for your interest....

Cheers, Arne

Anyone pre-order it? I ordered two. One for myself and the other for my girlfriend. Since we both have Prime it's a quicker way to watch it vs having to fire up other components and couldn't beat the initial price offering. Basically 2 for the price of one. Unfortunately that was only for 2 days which has since passed. Looking forward to playing with it once it arrives. Still on the fence about a Roku 3. Not sure if they've got a Roku 4 in the wings either....

Its a strange one for me this is, as I tend to only listen once, to something that is streamed, even if I like it I don't generally go back to it, I think its because of time restraints. There is so much music available these days that it is hard to make a choice as to what to spend the hard earned cash on.

I brought a CD at the weekend after listening to clips a couple of months ago prior to the pending release date, this is in my opinion the way it has always been with me, although the promotion is slightly different in todays market place, that promotion comes before the album is available and that promotion tended to be the "single 45 vinyl or single CD". Although that in itself was sometimes not considered, because if you were a fan of a particular group, artist, etc. you brought their latest release without question.

In days gone by everyman and his dog taped the chart show from the radio on their trusty cassette player, I even used to record tracks direct off the TV from forward thinking shows like "The Tube" or "Rock goes to College" here in the UK. This is no different to ripping stuff from You Tube, SoundCloud, Bandcamp whathaveyou. In my opinion its not down to if the whole of the music is available or just a few clips, its not even about supporting a particular band, artist etc. its about if you really want to own that product, to be able to do whatever you want with it and listen to it on various devices in its "best quality".

Obtaining the music in its best quality is the only way to get the most rewarding experience from it, this goes for music of any genre and as such any music that is available to hear via an internet stream should never the best quality available, if your happy to listen to music in substandard quality then that's your bonus, you will always be able to get free music and nobody on this planet will be able to stop that happening. There are too many people fretting about HOW we get music these days instead of remembering why we used to buy it, why we had to have that latest released gatefold sleeve LP with all the info, the pleasure we used to get from putting it on the player and hearing most of the tracks on it for the first time and then not taking it off again until we knew all the tracks on it like the backs of our hands. The physical product in all its glory, and in its best quality, will always win over a downloaded PC file as far as I am concerned.

Im for the fully available album and I like the "name your price" option.  I have found that people are very fair and pay what a download is worth....and thats anything from $1 to $10 though it rarely gets that high.

I would never order anything through cdbaby because of the 30 second sound clips.  I have bought through them only when I have heard the music more extensively elsewhere and cdbaby is the only source.

Actually Pete I have listen to your albums on band camp and bought several and sometimes I like to go back and listen again. Perhaps I passed on music that did not register with me the first go round but did the second or third...so there are some advantages of having all the music accessible.

I have tended to put up the whole thing to listen to - but the thought of making some bonus tracks is a very nice idea.

I actually like knowing that people are listening to the music, and some go on to buy.

I'm not in the position of having large 'sales' to protect....
