When your music is shared
"When your music is shared"
You wrote down last chars of track
commentary and settled back. What's next? There are infinitely many ways
of sharing your music. I think this is the most important side in post
Imagine you found a tune at some site and
hooked it into you hard drive. The overall impression depends not only
on what-u-hear, but also on what-u-see. Not any music can be understood
easily. People are usually trying to keep a sense within their work, but
they also forget to explain this sense correctly. So before you'll share
your work, try it as a side listener. As for me, I prefer to add a
doubled commentary -- short at instruments list and full at in-file
message section (if you're able to do so). This helps a listener not to
read the whole text if he doesn't want this. In general, first you need
to know is author and title of the track. And may be some overall
description of track sense, just in one or two phrases. Got interested?
Then you can read all essentials. And don't forget to add your contacts
for people to submit you their impressions or other valuable comments. I
think this contacts should be as constant as it possible. What if
someone wants to write you a couple lines of text over 5 years after
The next point between your talent and
your fans is server. A server you've selected to store your work should
both fast and accessible. Sometimes your tune needs to be updated (new
ideas or little fixes) and your server should have some tools allowing
you such operations. It's really great, if you can provide additional
information to the link (file format, file size, music style and etc.),
so better to choose server with some GUI (Graphical User Interface).
Such as modulez.org, for instance. ? As I know, most people prefer to
see a direct link to the track, avoid using re-directs, because it much
easier to grab a tune with just one click. Don't be lazy, try your link
by yourself. Is it correct?
We have the package now. Get ready the
comments won't be all shine and exalted. There're as much opinions as
much people're in the known world. My own statement is the following:
any listener have a right for his personal opinion. I'm not trying to
write music to meet all possible requirements, to be on top, to become
famous and popular. I'm doing so to express my own feelings and words
through my music. Yes, it's a pleasure to receive favorable reviews, but
don't get sad if it's not so. Try to understand, is there any real
motivated remarks? Not all people are writing valuable remarks, most
of'em are just spamming commentary field. In any case you will have
another chances to correct your mistakes, to enhance your skills. Don't
lose your heart! Only The Death is irreversible. Keep trying in any
other situations. And don't forget to say some thanks to your reviews.
At least for their interest.
Keep tracking! We're really waiting for
your music... somewhere.
