I got asked by a few people to post some excerpts of the dead on arrival e-book so they can get an idea of what it’s all about. here they are, for all you loyal people who support my art. thank’s a 1000 times.
I’ve been in sicily for the last 3 weeks and have 1 more week to go. as stated earlier, I’ve been planning a book version of my last album “dead on arrival“. the print, though, seems too expensive right now to make it happen so I decided to publish it online.
the book includes 52 pages of background information on the music, all the lyrics and excerpts of the scores. plus I’ll attach the music to it.
right now I’m in the phase of figuring out the best way to provide the book (which will be a pdf file) and the music as one item for download. I’ll probably use e-junkie as the shopping platform. they seem to be the easiest and efficient online download shops.
I’ll keep you posted about when the book will launch and what the price will be.
if you have any tips on how to best provide the files, please let me know.
also, if you#re interested in pre-ordering, please shoot me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
if you’d like to know how pros listen to music, esp. music they get sent by artist, listen to the sampler my friend over at realistic sound made of my last album “dead on arrival“. the album has 25 tracks, some of which are really long. (total play time ca. 85 minutes)
listen to the whole album in only 12 minutes. no record label exec. would spend more time on your album than that, probably even less. I’d guess between 5-6 minutes max. and that’s if the first impression is somewhat interesting to them.
keep that in mind, next time you send stuff to a label.
this is just a reminder that my show “dead on arrival” today at feinspeiserei got cancelled due to building inspector’s safety concerns regarding the building’s structure. they closed the club down a couple of weeks ago. sad to see such a cool location dissapear.
anyway, there’s NO SHOW TONIGHT at feinspeiserei.
I’ll keep you all posted about the next big performance.
