With the end of CDs and the ability to generate any income from music my interest have been channeled elsewhere. Thats not to say I haven't been doing music, I just don't know what to do with it.
Quote from: TravisBut, the new studio is coming along and I have been working with all my usual collaborators in the temporary studio in my house. Viggo and I have been working on the score to his new film, thats what I was doing in London a few weeks ago. The results should be of interest to all those that used to frequent this place.
Hopefully it will lead to some new projects.
At least the Viggo project can be heard on big screens everywhere. But the rest I'm just not sure.
Quote from: TravisOnce the studio is done I plan on revisiting alternative ways of distribution. I think when you see stories like, vinyl records are outselling CDs thats only indicative of how far Cds have fallen. However, I have been thinking about it. I'm kind of interested in releasing a new project as vinyl only. But I do have a really cool catalog that something should be done with.
The problems are, its expensive to press vinyl and it requires selling them for stupid prices. The sweet spot for pricing music verses the cost to make them that was easy with Cds just isn't there. Its too pricey for people not willing to pony up that kind of cash causing the cost to those who are too pay too much. The other problem with repressing CDs to vinyl is, CDs held so much more music then vinyl there is not room on a single disc to hold the content of a CD. So you end up in this odd problem of having too mush music for a single disc and not enough for double.
Quote from: TravisOne of the things I miss about this forum is the feedback about the demand for things. You may remember Thanatopsis Requiem that did not go well and was the last thing I produced for this label. But I'm opened to opinions. So hopefully the first part of next year I'll be revamping this sight, my Facebook presence and new projects and distribution ideas. Thanks for posting.
Quote from: Travis on June 10, 2019, 01:41:37 pmHey back. Looks like its just you and me. Since last you checked in, all the above continues to be true and i closed my recording studio to to the economics of the music business and the insane escalation of Los Angels rents. I'm rebuilding the studio in my home, and that will take the better part of the rest of the year. In the meantime i have a small studio set up and have been working on the score to Viggos new film and a couple of records that were in progress when I moved. My own music is on hold while my brother is recovering from his reconstruction surgery. When he's feeling up to it we'll get back to recording and hopefully have a shinny new studio to do it in.Oh, that's sad to hear. Insane rents seems to be a big problem everywhere these days
