This January, I've been releasing my ambient music under my Igneous Flame moniker for 10 years. This is quite a milestone for me, even though I'm aware it is dwarfed by much more established artists longevity, it still means a lot to me. I initially released my material on 'Chillfactor 10 records' (not my title !) in 2003 and when that label folded, I set up my own LuminaSounds imprint in 2008. During this 10 year period, I released 11 solo albums and 24 albums in total.
Around 2003, I read some overly-optomistic 'career' articles for musicians about having 5 year and 10 year plans, I decided that they were far too idealistic and my plan was to simply carry on creating and releasing ! I've still got a lot I want to do and over time, more refinement will (hopefully !) come into the work. I hope to be able to carry on as I am currently able to in the future.
To mark my first 10 years, I'm giving away my 2005 'Binaural Soundtracks' release (as 320 kbps mp3s).Full text and album download link:http://igneousflame.wordpress.com/2013/01/09/
