late #introduction: I'm a #Singer-#Songwriter from #Bern, #Switzerland playing the #guitar and some #epiano. When I'm lucky I dream a melody and can rescue it. I'm bad at finishing songs though and I'm looking for someone who would like to collaborate. I recently had a #burnout and I'm still not completely back to normal, but much better. I like to read or, well, I mostly listen to books from https://librivox.org 😜 I do #yoga and go to the #gym almost daily. Attached a pic of my fav guitar...

while https://choon.co seems like a decent site to share #music as an artist, it's again a completely walled garden. it's not open source, they use #facebook for update and #medium for blog posts. you can't give proper feedback, the team is full of "entrepreneurs", meaning all they want is to get rich with choon (see https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4500375.0 )
I hope it fails to be honest. they're not doing this in the interest of the musicians really.
the Buskers steet music festival in #Bern has been quite a disappointment. or have you heard of buskers performing on stage? because that's what they do at the festival. they have built stages with massive amps and #musicians cannot just play, they need to register even. feels more like an opportunity for food stands to make money. 😐
I really like this #song by Cellophane Sam called "The Gang's All Here"
Is there yet a movement where artists and creators make a testament that after their death all their work becomes public domain? Ie. an explicit middle ground between default copyright period and immediate PD at the time of publication?
I'd be interested in developing and advocating this kind of movement to widen the common public cultural legacy. But I guess some sort of legal expertise would be good to have. And if this is already a thing, then great, I'll join!
wow, never really saw a #Beatles concert before. here's one from Australia 1964 in pretty good quality: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TahzLwGlFL8
it's amazing. you get an idea why they became so famous and the people were later screaming so loud that they couldn't hear themselves playing anymore (that's also the reason they stopped doing live performances)
@reto yes never take ANY of their plans I had a terrible experience with absolutely all of them (and I'm the patient/comprehenssive kind of person) they really just want your money. A coop would be amazing, meanwhile the only accessible platform is distrokid (20$ per year for illimited storage on spotify itunes etc) but haven't tried it yet >__< if you find something let me know, i'd be happy to join a mastodon-sort-of-website dedicated to music!!
I deleted my #bandcamp account. all I want to do currently is to put some live demos out, but bandcamp is not well suited for that. I'm trying #reverbnation now a bit: https://www.reverbnation.com/oter
there are really too many of these sites and they all kind of suck because none of them is a co-op.
