Progress Bar

It’s been now more than one month since my last post and I’ve been preparing new songs. I’d like to thank everyone who has played my songs on Spotify, Rdio, Xbox Music and Muve and especially to those who bought an .mp3 version on iTunes since then as it helps a lot making my new album possible.

Official numbers just come to me 3 months later so I can’t really give an exact picture of how many streams I really need. I created this progress bar based on what I know:

Crowdfunding

kickstarter

I’ve read a lot of news about how artists can and should try crowdfunding to get the necessary money (unfortunatly this paper thing rules the world) for their next project.

And while the crowdfunding projects that usually make the news are those that went bad or that ended up selling for billions to corporations (*cough* Oculus Rift) , if you check Kickstarter.com you can see there’s a lot of great serious projects getting the necessary monetary help from art patrons from all around the world.

Just take a look at how good the project “Kingdom Come: Deliverance” (videogame) looks for example:

I would like to create a project and tell you about my experience with it. Unfortunatly I can’t. The creation of new projects is limited to artists living in the US, Australia, UK, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Canada, Ireland, Netherlands and New Zealand.

So how can I get funded?

Well the simplest and cheapest way (it’s free) to help is to listen to my songs on Spotify. Everyone has already heard from Taylor Swift that Spotify doesn’t exactly pay much per stream (my average payment is something like $0.0018/stream) but the plataform is great, user friendly and you can help by just playing the songs (requires electricity, a computer and an internet connection). So here’s a playlist for you:

Did you hear that?

Then you helped. Thank you very much. Here’s an internet meme for you:

I am a generous God

 

If you are feeling benevolent and wouldn’t mind spending a few dollars you can Buy the .mp3 songs at iTunes too: http://itunes.apple.com/album/id942537647

 

 

New album: Orpheum

My newest album is now available at iTunes, Google Play, Amazon mp3, Spotify, Deezer, Xbox Music, Rhapsody and other online services.

It includes 14 original songs.

Some are more soundtrack-like: “First Strike”, “Into my Dreams”.

Others are for those who love a good piano song: “Piano improvisation”, “Harmony in Chaos”

Or for something heavier: “Metalegypt”

Listen to it now! Here´s some links:
