In the efforts of blowing apart the model of "just posting a shoutbox link to your music," I've wanted to add this here. It's probably shameless self-promotion too, but I'm not the only one who can post here! Basically, I'm just personally tired of seeing all of these "new track from glitch-avant-nouveau-post-pop-rave-techno-house-reggae" links. I know I've been guilty of it too, but I think it's sometimes better to hear a little about the person and maybe it makes you get into their music more? I've always liked to put a personality with music.
To start it off, I like to make music as a hobby. I've been playing a lot of my life and have studied it at university. However, I also study literature soooo...I think it's led me to make some kind of abstract choices on things like naming my songs. Love History
|(This is a concept collection about a simple love story of two people, haha.)
And, thanks to Last.fm's gorgeous "people meeting other people" scheme - someone found me online and said "hey, do a soundtrack for me!" and now I'm doing that, so I guess it's semi-less of a hobby now? Flowers of Distraction
(This is the song I'm passing around to college radio and stuff like that.)
*cough* Wow. That was pretty long. Anyway, if you lead a group that this message is in and it is NOT okay to post this - just let me know and I'll take it off. But I'd like to see the softer side of music, the part with the people behind the songs, not just the links.
Last.fm has great potential. We are musicians, we are listeners. We are more than just links. Let's all show our passion for what we do!
