Sooo, yeah. I make music and I release it for free, but sometimes getting paid feels good. I’m broke and I don’t have anyone to market me, so I just ask people to please, please buy my stuff. You can listen to it all for free and pay whatever you want (including nothing).
In this moment, a company I love (Native Instruments) is having an awesome sale (cheap, cheap expansions for Maschine), and if you buy my music I can buy stuff and create even more music. Please buy my stuff, pretty pretty please.
kr(Æ)ft: Weird electronic stuff. Ambient, experimental, glitch, jazz, electronics, small touches of noise.
The Ocean and the Machine: My attempt at minimalism that ended in electronic noise, glitch, industrial, soundscape with small touches of house, electro-funk and other things that doesn’t fit.
Beax: My new pride and joy. The influence of Aphex Twin, Squarepusher and Xploding Plastix shouldn’t be lost on anyone.
Vivivivi: Chiptunes made for games that never existed. Just without the elements of dancing.
Free new EP from kr(Æ)ft, aptly titled Just Another EP. Way out of my comfort zone, but rather my style still, I think. Feel free to share, download and listen as much as you’d like. I’m broke and people don’t pay me for my music unless they are kind and nice.
But of course, you can still be kind and nice without paying, sharing or even caring about this.
I’m trying to figure out which one of these will be used as the cover for my upcoming album (We can’t always fight nature, John), and I want you to help me. Perhaps the easiest way to do so would be to like your favorite(s) here on the facebook-page.
It would be very nice if you participated (/indulged me) and shared this along as well. I can’t afford any paid promotion, and I share my music for free, here (among other places).
I will decide, and announce, which coverart will be used on the 15th of May, and the album will be released (for free) on the 18th of May. If you’re curious about the music, here’s a couple of teasers: Teaser 1 Teaser 2 Teaser 3
We can’t always fight nature, John. We can’t fight change. We can’t fight gravity. We can’t fight nothing. My whole life, all I ever did was fight. But I can’t give up neither. I can’t fight my own nature. That’s the paradox, John. You see?
We’re opening this one a little earlier than usual (about 4 hours earlier), because I might be asleep later on, and I still don’t trust that “publish on…”-option. This is what happens when I sample the sound of abusing an old CD with a violin bow, and then put that into Absynth and Twisted Tools’ Scapes. I’m pretty darn pleased actually.
