The fact that I have not published any music for weeks does not mean that I was not busy with music! Try to set up a 24/7 stream on YouTube, a few times failed because my old desktop could not handle the 64bit ”OBS” so big cleaning and maybe a long time on air 😀
There’s a clear rising line. In the past year, I’ve quite reasonably made many things and released music. Now at the moment of the conveyor belt, besides my work, I do nothing else. But only yesterday I saw a significant rising line for the first time, not really to write home yet! That significant rising line I saw Spotify, a place where I am little and little to do, I do not have a network. It’s not much, but better than those 2 listeners per month I had in recent years.
So my way of working may have its effect. Last year, I thought, “You can work on a project all year long, or work in one year for hundreds of hours of music.” It’s a choice, as I do not have to earn money, non have any ambitions to act really, but it’s nice to enjoy people my music. Only in music is that usually visible later, throwing a stone into the water and the rings that are spreading ever wider. I am throwing a lot of stones in the water at the moment, and the best thing is that most of the listeners come from Italy, Italy of course 1 and the Netherlands, only 9th place.
What I’ve been doing over the last few weeks and keeping me busy is working with OBS , open broadcasting software, which could make your TV broadcast. That’s how I go live on Youtube and Facebook, and I usually do an unprepared mix of my own tracks mixed with an improvised live performance, as my current DJ controller has a built-in drum computer that lets you program it yourself and adjust each drum part individually , plus a small mixer, with your voice you can do a lot too. But the nicest thing is that it has MIDI, and I can run all kinds of hardware in sync.
You can see it on Youtube: ” The End Summer Mix ” the uncut version , with all the mistakes in it. And here during the first part of the mix of 3 hours, but with the worst mistakes.
