    Finally recorded the last track of my coming album 'Where is the audience?' This piece is titled Softly speaking and like the other tracks for the album:
    Intertwining
    Aegir
    Ditch
    Where is the audience?
    and
    Moat
    it's more or less classical orientated

    I'm quite happy with it. Now the album is finished I should find the energy, or inspiration for my next piece. Feeling a bit empty, as usual after having recorded a new composition.

    What I don't really get is the likes I get from a couple of ladies, who seem to like all kinds of music and seem to be offering some pay to play service. I also got a message from someone offering this. Why, oh why should I do that? It's not like I get paid.

    The problem is, I don't get what would be in it for me. I mean, if I pay someone to help me to sell my music, I can understand, but this just seems to be getting more plays, which doesn't get me paid anything. It's not like Spotify, where one gets paid for the amount of plays.

    Services like this are simply casting a wide net, hoping that they catch new/aspiring artists who have dreams of becoming a "success" and see services like theirs as an easy way to cultivate/grow an audience. They aren't offering sales, they're offering exposure with the ever-so-vague promise of "sales will follow eventually once you're HUGE thanks to our hard work."

    Speaking just for myself (but I suspect others feel the same), I have no such aspirations. I'm proud of what success I've achieved, and the idea of paying someone to "boost my profile" is absurd.

    Indeed. Either people like my music, or they don't. I try to promote my stuff, but more to get heard, than to earn money. But I'm not going to pay someone, so I can say: "Hey look, I have 1,000 listerners." What does that mean, if I paid someone for it? Now if those people would actually like my stuff and buy it, It might be different, but if it's just about more listeners, who aren't actually interested in my music, I prefer to spend my money on stuff to create my music, like upgrades for Cubase, softsynths, or other stuff I use to create music.

    I finally finished a new version of an old composition I wrote in 1986 for video-art. At that time I used a Roland TB-303 and a Roland system 100 model 101 for the sequencer-parts. I had to start each of the 4 parts by hand. I still had the sheet-music for the sequencer-parts and the chords, so I decided to put this into Cubase and add an ending and new melody-lines. In the original version, the music was cut of at the end of the video.
    Used instruments:
    Cherry Audio CA-2600 (own sound)
    HALion Sonic Ionica Sketch: Bassoon 1
    Cherry Audio Miniverse (own sound)
    Arturia Mini V (own sound)
    Cherry Audio PS-20 two tracks (own sounds)
    Cherry Audio Mercury-4 two tracks (own sound and a variation)
    Cherry Audio Synthesizer Expander Module (own sound)
    Arturia Analog Lab V DX7 (Train)

    This is a bit different to what I expected to hear and I liked the concept, structure and duration. I couldn't help thinking that it put me in mind of the Final Fantasy 7 gameplay music at times , which is no bad thing at all. I will definitely listen again to this one as it a perfect length to just dive in on for a quicky. Congratulations on getting it done and online.

    It gave me a cool late 80's "Full Moon Entertainment" soundtrack vibe which is a very good thing Thanks for sharing!

    Well in a way it's an old piece and before I could use the computer to help me play my music, I depended on improvisation and well at this point the TB-303 bassline, which ment I could create a bit more complicated basis to improvise on.

    Bob and Renate, very nice! Renate, I particularly like the second track you posted, Point Zero. Bob, great playing on the Weather Report cover.

    Funny, because 'Point-zero revisited' is in a way a simple piece in 4/4. "Softly speaking' is more complex, with a lot of time-signature changes. In a way it's perhaps a bit more classical orientated. I'm always a bit drawn between things. Sometimes I like to do something that is more classical orientated, even if I might use synthesizer-sound and at other times I like to go more in a electronic or rock direction (perhaps without drums).

    Needs more keyboards

    Lots of great ideas in there! Almost got a bit of an XTC vibe in the vox. Thx for sharing

    Nice one. I get a kind of Rush feel. Really like the acoustic ending.

    Wow . You crammed major amounts into such a short time but it works. Liked lots about the piece, Guitar, Tron, the bone dry snare, the intro segue and final outro were my faves. Off to listen to the intro again now.
    Congratulations for getting it did, and good luck in your competition.

    Very nice and there is defenitly a lot going on. The beginning reminds me on early Kayak and the organ parts reminds me a bit on Trace. I'ts a bit short.

    Our second album, Through The Hourglass, has just been released on the streaming services. Though all of this is probably not "Prog", the first and fourth tracks apply I believe.

    We hope you enjoy it.
