After months of exploring Jamendo and listening to the music on offer there, I decided to take the plunge and upload some of my own music and share it with the world. In doing so, I have in a way turned into an independent artist, although I still see myself as an amateur who enjoys creating music in his spare time.
As of this writing, I have three tracks uploaded, all of them early works.
- Space Dreams – A soothing, ambient track and one of my personal favorites. I enjoyed it so much that I played it while at work in the office where I was employed at the time. A co-worker overheard it and liked it so much that he wanted me to upload it to the server that stored the music files for everyone’s listening enjoyment.
- Trip Hopping – A catchy, cheerful track originally created as an instrumental track for an imaginary rap group but it took on a completely new life of its own.
- Pretty Strange – At just over 5 minutes, this is one of my longer tracks and the result of an impromptu one-man jam session. I weaved in some of the better parts to the steady rhythm, added some effects and ended up with a unique track I consider a personal favorite.
Now to wait and see how these tracks do. As of this writing, they have received 87 plays. Not bad for a start, but then again, I’m only getting started myself.
