Releasing Music on Spotify

Being serious in the music production hobby is my main goal to fill my part-time with easy-to-access technology and rig that everyone can take part of it. For 7 years of being amateur on music production but takes a little more effort into it such as buying some gears which I afforded by taking part time job that had nothing to do with music industry. Its pretty easy to become anything on the net, all you have to do type any subjects what you want on Youtube, get more serious and practice more. You can produce anything (and the result depends on how much hard-work you put in there).

I released more 50 electronic music  tracks along the seven year where half of my file projects were lost but the audio files were released and compiled into each album that I saved for archiving. For starter, my first release sounds really really bad with mediocre compositions and simple arrangement. Not something I regret because the way I learn from nothing and improve into something. So, currently... I am in the improving phase but there is something that I want to do with my music projects to get more serious where I just dont produce and release it over the Internet, expecting someone listens to my music for free. I want to get more broad audience and "sell" my music (the definition selling of music is probably will be next topic later).

So, my fb feed filled with audio gear and services ads like how to put your music into audio-digital store and stream-able into Spotify. I am avid-user of Spotify and putting my music there is not something free. So, I found a service called Tunecore on my facebook ads and try to figure it out how to upload music there. It wasnt free service apparently and requires around 50$ fee to release an album. Luckily enough, I have some balances on Paypal that I got from my Youtube channel and use it for paying the service. 

The technical method to upload music is not something easy to do, I managed to plan my latest album release (that I think passable enough to be called thematic album with decent composition by taking techno-house as main genre). The audio requires in high-quality format such .wav that must be converted through iTunes software. Once again, I am lucky enough my latest project release is not the one get deleted when my laptop disk broke. So, i have a little bit work to enhance the mastering production.

The album itself called Seventhouses (Its my seventh release) where I upload three years ago, my main reason to re-uploaded for getting more abroad listeners and get some earning for my part-time hobby. Seventhouses is something like a projection of local electronic scene (where it doesnt really exist except Funkot part that the audience just want to hear fast-faced tacky electronic mixed with dangdut basslinee and top 40's ripped sounds where DJ yells every names who are on drugs every single fucking time on the nearest club in my city.



Anyway, if you want listen some my electronic music works on Spotify, here is the embed-able that you can stream directly. Tbh, i released 2 months ago and yet, I dont know how much I will get from puting my music there, if you click play already. Thank you.

Building PC Gaming Master Race

I am probably too late to catch current trend in gaming culture, five years in college with old laptop while I watch lets play videos and play some casual online game like MOBA was regular thing I used to do. And seven years backward, I lived in a place where there was no real gaming activity besides trying to be more religious in religious school. 

The reason I like video game activity and its culture (i know its pretty general but I want to make some post that specify my definition of gaming later) is this is something like part of my escapism today and when I was younger. Maybe, my motivation to learn English came from video game (I remember when I try to translate some phrases on video game dialog and want to know the meaning of the plot. It was back when I cant afford to have console and watch some people play in public video game rental (this is something to post worthy).

Today, I am aware of technology and what it can offer toward the consumer of current gaming system that I can choose (when I was kid, I really want to have console like SNES or PSX. PC had double price than today and I was too afraid to have one because if you couldnt use it, it will infected your PC and blow). 

In 2008, dad bought me a pre-build PC as for my long-waiting gift. Its a time when I just barely knew a little bit about Internet and also dont know too much about how to understand pc works and its hardware until 2012 I took a course in PC building and repairing. (Its became my part-time job for additional bux).

Fast forward now, I can have my own stable job where I can afford more higher budget for my building better pc than I had before for music editing and rendering video (its just dualcore processor with shitty vga that basically used for daily entertainment and browsing. So, after many research and considerations to get better PC. I plan to build my own PC with more budget. Anyway, here the components I am using.

I know its not reaching for ultimate PC gaming for sure I get decent PC to maintain my productivity besides gaming. I tried to run audio project with heavy loaded sample packs and premium VSTi's that ran on my old PC very lag and unplayable. With the rig I use, it runs flawlessly. 

Anyway, I dont really talk about the title about PC Gaming Master Race, maybe later. Its midnight and I need to sleep so that tomorrow I can get my earning while this pc gaming master race is my debt that probably I can pay in two - three months.

Changing This Blog Type

Its been so long since I didn't post for this blog. I know that this is kind of repeating same excuses why I don't continue on English blogging anymore.Its probably because I have real serious "business" on real life besides lurking around the Internet for entertaining my mind. Sometimes, I work on my project but too lazy to update it here mainly because there is nothing much I can do with this blog so far.

There were some plan to jump on online business band-wagon and also write some decent article. But what for? There are many people who do same thing out there. So, that was an excuse to continue on learning how to write right.

Anyway, I have many ideas and thoughts that crawling on my mind and sometimes I want to put it here on blog. And also, there are some moments that I want to save here on the Internet. For the next thing on this blog, I'll put short and simple so that I can continue on journal.

Anyway... I want to put my last pic on my "Real Business" that I am currently working on.
