and the clip
To see if there is some alternative to Soundcloud (I think not but I try to keep myself in teh loop on other possibilities) I put a new track on Reverbnation, Hearthis.at and InMusik.co
I still think none of these 3 has the ease, user interaction and logic of Soundcloud. Specially Reverbnation looks cluttered with lots of options you don’t really need when you want to share and discover new music. Hoping to hear other people’s experiences.
My garden is an ongoing inspiration. Here a new clip and accompanying music.
Thanks to Cees for singing on this one. The track evolved over many moons, expanded, shortened – guitars & effects added and taken out again. From each iteration some fragment was left – so it is a bit of a strange brew: quite some layers in this one. But the message remains – we are fools for love.

Carry on the moment
present itself right here,
gazing at the stage
wonder if the time is near.
Something I want to tell you
but it doesn’t feel right.
Checking all the lines
as soon as the bassdrum’s set.
She is a fool for love and she knows it
Well I am a fool for love and I know it.
She is coming,
she is going.
But a fool goes around:
no-one seems to try,
no-one seems to hide.
Things that I know I’ve had in mind.
And the fool for love ‘s been around:
she is a fool for love and she knows it.
You’re kindly invited to listen to and comment on the newest collaboration with Mark J. Bennett and Daniel Lockhart, called Grace be brave. It is a ballad about a courageous young woman who with her father rescued survivors from a shipwreck.
Here you can see a clip:
Two pieces I put on Hearthis.at – another platform for sharing music. It has promoted itself and is said by others to be the new soundcloud. I find the interface a bit cluttered with options and buttons compared to soundcloud. But the music streams and lets itself be put in playlists, liked, commented on etc etc.
Soundcloud today gave as a search result on Syria, filtered for location Syria – 297 people, hearthis.at only 1 – a feature I always liked in the first version of Myspace was that you can search for a certain music style in a certain location. Gives you an idea of the global reach of a platform.
Hearthis at was founded by Benedikt Groß from Chemnitz in Germany in March 2013.
