Eldorado Omega - new experimental downtempo on High Grade Media


Posted by tay0 In: Albums

My new EP is finally out. It began as a series of drone improvs and gradually evolved into a set of discrete compositions employing solo piano, sampling and analog sound design techniques, and generally sitting around with headphones on listening to things buzz and pop. All the while, I was being treated for dystonia in my right arm, my family was going through a time of loss, and working on these sounds was keeping me focused and sane.

Making of "A Sound Found"


Posted by Introspectral In: Video

Hello.. I will soon be releasing my latest composition, "A Sound Found". While I was making it, I recorded a few of the sessions, and thus ending up with a lot of material (aprox 15h) that I will now be sharing.

The complete composition consists of five "chapters" that flow seamlessly between each other... This is the first video where I am working on a transition between the first two chapters..

Neverland - Why Facebook Is No Good For Music...


Posted by Jack Hertz In: Networking

:alert: WARNING: Openly uninformed vile acidic rant about the same old thing ahead.


Yea, we've had this conversation a 1000 times but more than ever I am convinced Facebook not only does not care about music. It gets in the way. After some very focused campaigns to promote albums and events, it just does not work for what I think is a very subtle, yet obvious reason.


Please know, I mean no disrespect to anyone in this *personal* assessment. I do love and value all my friends on Facebook and have a great time networking with people. But that is exactly the problem, I think. We don't find a large audience on Facebook looking for music because Facebook IS the entertainment. It is a Neverland of sorts where everything that happens in the world, good and bad. Is nothing more than a sparkle of magic that gets ohhs and ahhs for 15 seconds, then disappears without a trace. "Look! We're all dancing in rainbows, how can this be bad?"


What's easy to get crossed up on, is when we post our content there. We are reinforcing people to stay on Facebook and wait for more content to come to them. The more they get used to that, the less inclined they are to actually participate in the full experience we are *promoting* in the form of a track, album, radio show, review, etc. For this same reason, I think posting more only encourages indifference. As the content is only seen because of the system. Not due to real interest or engagement in the thing we are presenting.


To me, it feels counter productive to focus on something with low or no results. Moreover, its taking time away from interacting with, while smaller, more focused communities where people are at least willfully engaged with something relative to what I am doing. Add in the fact that you get ZERO support from the search engines when posting on Facebook. A post there is really just a poof of smoke.


I am not looking for the ultimate solution. However, I know I have to cut down on all that Facebook time to focus more on resources that care about what I am doing. Connecting with blogs, radio, podcasts, reviews, shows, compilations, keeping up my own web site, and even listening to music are much better time spent than relentlessly working the streets of Neverland.
