Hey, @mirlo is it possible to embed tracks/albums from Mirlo into Wordpress blogs? I can't figure it out if it is...

EDIT: OF COURSE IT IS, I am just not terribly observant. It's right there when you hit the "Share" button.

@990000 @mirlo ah, I missed that! Sure enough, there it is and I am a big dummy. Thanks!

Working on tracks for the latest album, and we’re once again doing it completely different. Laura is laying down topline melodies before either of us write a single lyric. We’re letting the topline dictate where the song goes. Which is weird (for us).

@etherdiver@ravenation.club avatar

@endlessblue I find it useful and inspiring to do it a little differently each time myself, Keeps things fresh!

Does anybody have better taste in collaborators than Brian Eno? I love Wrong Way Up, his 1990 album with John Cale!

@KateOfMind That was my introduction to Eno in high school!

Great insight from @hilljam's newsletter yesterday:

"my work got much better when I stopped worrying so much about what other people thought and delved more wholeheartedly into my idiosyncratic interests."

If you are an artist, of any type, at any level of success, and you aren't already putting this into practice as the core of your artistic journey, do it now. It's the single biggest thing you can do to make your art better, AND more satisfying to create.

Chase your dreams, not trends!

Yes, I can confirm that it feels amazing to be able to create your own music.

YOU SHOULD TRY IT SOMETIME

@KydiaMusic

LMAO, this is so fucking dumb. I am not even 100% against using tools that might be described as "AI" by the hucksters as part of your creative process, but holy fuck, thinking that typing a few words of description into a machine and having it spit out some milquetoast average of all things that kinda sorta fit your description is "creat[ing] your own music" is just ultimate smoothbrain shit.

Like hitting the DEMO button on a synth and thinking you created that.

etherdiver,
@etherdiver@ravenation.club avatar

@KydiaMusic That's been my big takeaway with ALL the AI-generated stuff. If you think it's actually GOOD... well, let's just say I've always been a little suspicious of the average person's taste in art, and now I know I was being way, WAY too generous.

Snyder got Anthony Hopkins to narrate the beginning of Rebel Moon Part Two. Snyder takes himself incredibly seriously. Even with waves hand in general direction of that movie this

@Adam_Cadmon1 yeah, that's one of his biggest weaknesses is that he takes himself waaay too seriously

Up to 15 mins worth of music, hosted on a service that allows payments and/or messages directly to the artists (self hosted, , , @mirlo, jam.coop, SoundCloud, YouTube, etc but NOT Spotify, Tidal etc).

Oh and you have to follow me in some respect (I'll follow back! Looking for community, not "fans" or whatever).

@4d3fect I'll check it out for sure but I do currently require someone from the actual band to reach out for coverage... If I like it well enough, I can reach out to them tho!

etherdiver,
@etherdiver@ravenation.club avatar

@4d3fect no worries, I'm still check it out! I'll take music recommendations from anyone, that's how you find the cool stuff!

@dereisenhofer

Will add it to the queue, but might be a minute since I just covered your metal track a week or two ago. Thanks!

@etherdiver@ravenation.club avatar

@pomCountyIrregs added you to the queue, but since I covered one of yours in the relatively recent past, might be a minute

Godsdamn it, Pittsburgh Modular, if you could stop making badass synths that I feel like I can't live without for a while, that'd be great!

(This is in reference to the new Voltage Lab 2, as well as last year's Taiga, to a lesser degree.)

Especially since they're not cheap 😅

(No shade intended, I KNOW they're actually very cheap for what all they can do, but the raw cost is eye-watering to a indie artist who doesn't make $10's of thousands a year from music making.)

@etherdiver@ravenation.club avatar

If you want to applaud my restraint, I welcome it 😅

@LadyMarth01 as an opsix owner, it's SO CHEAP! I looked into grabbing it 6 weeks ago when I went back to DAW-based production but I couldn't find any info on the deal (I didn't look very hard LOL, I had plenty of other stuff to keep me busy in the switch over) but today, as I was tumbling down a series of rabbit holes, a link to the deal just kinda popped up and so I said to heck with it and grabbed it.

etherdiver,
@etherdiver@ravenation.club avatar

@LadyMarth01 I'll keep the opsix physical version tho, as programming it is such a pleasure that I don't think a mouse/keyboard-based editing experience could ever hold a candle to it

I've been a skeptic, and even a cynic, for as long as I can remember. Like, since high school. I've basically always considered nearly everything I'm offered to be some kind of scam...and, look, I'm sure I missed out on a few things because of it.

But I have to say, it's undoubtedly paid off well in the past decade, and I can't help but notice more and more folks coming to the same conclusions...
