I plugged in the electric, hooked up Audacity, hit record, and flipped over to the same image that Marco used for his like a child piece. It’s a quickie job but what the hell that’s what blogs are for: Lucas Gonze – response to klaaankbeeld like a child (MP3) On a musical level I was […]
The packaging for releases on the Inman Street Records netlabel is a blog post with links to individual MP3s and to a zip file containing all of the MP3s. The blog as a whole is the label and the post is the album. For example, this is Shrinking Islands – “The Slow-Moving Aftermath EP”.
Crosbie Fitch’s comment on my post about interlinking between musician blogs: I suspect that a lot of the non-linking behaviour on musicians’ websites comes from the subtle cultural indoctrination we’ve been living with for a few centuries now (since the advent of copyright) that a musician who is influenced by others is a lesser musician […]
What’s missing from these three excellent musician sites, all of them full-fledged blogs, as well as from my own musician blog?

Over on the blog for my own music I have posted about an article on my music over on the guitar section of a general reference site called LoveToKnow.com. The story happened because the author, Kevin Casper, saw me play at a small bar. He had no reason to know about all the online work […]
Patrick Woodward’s MILA project is an example of how musicians manage their presence on the web. There is a personal blog post about creating and managing the work at http://www.patwoodward.com/2008/04/mila-album-on-web.html. There is a page which is a hub for the work itself at http://milamusic.tumblr.com/. There are a bunch of distribution points for getting the work […]
