I got an artist account on Free Music Archive, an excellent web resource for freely distributable music content — highly recommend this place.
Anyway, I need to deliver. Fortunately my hard disk is full of all kinds of projects that were never released of some reason or another — biggest one me losing interest as it’s fun to make music, less fun to finish it and release it.
Anyway, I will tackle this backlog and release free stuff. First is a 46+ minute experimental techno track, Mental Beats, that I’ve now broken up into 11 parts and doing remixing and final mastering. I will release this under the Spectral Mystics moniker. I might also release it via my RouteNote account — feel nowadays that the best way to release music is the combined free + paid services model. Those who want to sponsor me, they do it. Those who don’t, don’t mind as long as you like the music.
There’s also an ambient 50+ minute track called Rebirth that I will break up into parts and remix it. The story was that one of my cousins wanted music for the delivery of the baby, so I delivered!
I’ve also started working on two new sample libraries, one with synth bleeps using the Synthi XILS 3 plugin, fun one and nice to have a set of seventies bleep and sequencer run stuff. The other is using the Cheeze Machine string synthesizer for seventies string machine cheeziness. Hmm, how did I get stuck in the seventies?
