Played by: Alex Ferris
I hadn’t approached making music as an individuated player of an instrument since I’d started building. Everything I’d played through the five intervening years had been basically functional, structural members of wholes, so doing 6/06, which has something like soloing in it, was a way of testing how comfortable I'd become with the meters I'd been using. It was a step backward (a return to visibility), but a deliberate one, like a painter stepping back from the easel (a parallax).
I was missing thinking substantively about sound as tonality and rhythm as the collaborative version of Anarchestra was committed to abstraction.
I price all of my music at $0.00, but Bandcamp only allows a limited number of free downloads per month. If you see a price it means that the free downloads have been used up for the month. If I set a price lower than the $7.00 default, there won’t be any free downloads ever. If there are more sales there end up being more free downloads. I’m not trying to get anybody to spend money (I loathe capitalism and the comercialzation of everything, especially the arts). I make music, not product. If you end up buying something, at least you have enabled 2 other people to get something for free (which is a good thing). Or check back until it’s free again. Please feel free to duplicate and pass along.
