It seems like the month of March was a crazy month for posting blogs on here, but now it seems like things have slowed down. Well, that is what it looks like. The fact is, there is a LOT going on behind the scenes. So lemme clue you in on it.
Routenote - Fractals
About a month ago, I let everyone know that I was test driving the Routenote digital distribution model for my album Fractals and that I would tell you how it went or is going. Well, here we are about a month out and I have to say, that it looks like it is doing what it is supposed to be doing. I have seen Fractals land on Amazon mp3, iTunes, and Spotify - the three spots that I want to make sure that I had exposure. So far I haven't seen any money on it, but they are greatly lagged in their reporting of earnings. Not as lagged as reinsurance reporting though, so I guess things could be worse!
Routenote - Last Rites
Considering that I want to increase exposure for Last Rites, especially through streaming services, I am going to release the latest two Last Rites (Divine Intimacy and Renatus) albums through Routenote. Because Last Rites is not a for profit venture (heck - Phrygian Phish doesn't make money in a year for me to take my family for pizza!) I'm not worried about having everything for free on sites like soundcloud and bandcamp. I just sent out Divine Intimacy and will prepare Renatus for Routenote treatment later this week.
I'll give an update on that when I notice them hitting the sites.
What is MTEP? Well, it is an apostolate (i.e. Catholic ministry) that we inherited from my in-laws. It stands for "Mission to Empty Purgatory". The goal of the ministry is to spread awareness of the St. Gertrude prayer to aid the souls in Purgatory. Through praying, we can help alleviate these souls who are destined for heaven, but need to fully burn off the trappings of earth. Check it out!
But the reason I wanted to point it out is that I am writing music now for the site. It will be a twenty minute long piece that is loosely based on my nontrademark fractals technique. It is going to be epic, so stay tuned!
I am already hard at work on more Last Rites music. I have two more psalms largely mixed with a couple of edits left and then it is off to the mastering. Once I am done with them, I am going to release them. So stay tuned.
I think that is about it. Back to your regularly scheduled Tuesday!
