I release my music freely, but send to commercial outlets to make it available. Last month I got ~18k listens, and ~$11 in payment, averaging ~$0.0006/play.

A million plays per month would be a bit more than $600. As they say - "Don't quit your day job."

Thanks! And I'm honored to be a hashtag 😁

I'm slightly addicted to buying musical toys, and decided instead of having endless unpublished drafts I'd set a schedule and release stuff.

I kind of find the concept of "genre" arbitrary, and so I just play with what I have and hear. This makes my music hard to box (and sell), but I'm happy you enjoy it and intend to keep on making it regularly and for the foreseeable future 🎢

The kid of a politician - now a graduate. Ran a zoo, the family business, to build some cred, then got unfairly embroiled in a scandal. But this graduate won't be taken down so easily - even a canary can hold a peg.

Featuring trumpet, tenor sax, piano, upright piano, and brushed drum set.

Tomorrow for my stream I'll be practicing some classical works - Brahms, Debussy, Rachmaninoff, maybe others. Plus the usual noodling πŸ™‚

Well, though this is still far from my day job, I feel like I've "made it" in a funny way - one of my tracks was fully (audio) copied, sped up, and distributed by a (fake) artist, no credit to me.

I'm not naming it (want to avoid giving it traffic), and am seeing if I can get it taken down. Generally I'm happy to have my music proliferate - but I license it the way I do for a reason.

Sleep. Wake up. Eat. Work. Eat. Play. Sleep. Wake up. Eat. Work. Eat. Play. Sleep. Wake up. Eat. Work. Eat. Play. Sleep. Wake up. Eat. Work. Eat. Play. And it's Thursday.

This chill and lo-fi music features a variety of authentic Roland synths and samples, piano, electric piano, and vinyl effects.

Tomorrow around this time I'll live stream some piano. Evidently it's , so I'll just do fresh improv (not play any particular song, unless my fingers really force me to πŸ˜€). Tune in, or catch the recording after!

Bom, bom bom bom-bom-bom bom - bom bom bom - bom, bom bom bom-bom-bom bom. Bom, bom bom bom-bom-bom bom - bom bom bom - bombombom, bombombom.

Featuring electric guitar, bass, keys, female voice, flute, and drums.

Pushing back my stream to tomorrow - and thinking I'll reschedule it to Wednesday's ongoing. Time flies like a banana.

Tomorrow I'll play some piano and stream live, as usual. It's a new year, so I'll probably try to find some new sounds, either just free improv or flip to some standards I've not touched in awhile.

Social (n): Of or pertaining to society. Network (n): A fabric of threads, cords, or wires crossing each other at certain intervals. Brain (v): To dash out the brains of; to kill by beating out the brains. Hack (n): A notch; a cut.

Featuring conventional and modular synthesizers, sub-bass, orchestral brass, flute, SNES-sampled alto sax, electric grand piano, and drum machine.

@musicians

Stream pushed back a day again, but I'll play at least two favorites to balance.

Tomorrow I will again play piano and stream live. I've been practicing "My Favorite Things" lately, so, will probably include that.
