Well that last series was good fun. I really enjoy researching wacky movements so you can be assured there will be more in the future.
However, since i’ve got another very wordy series coming up, i thought i should take a day or two to post some non wordy posts. And this one is long overdue.
So having recorded the 1st Act in its entirety (the whole show is recorded but mostly without real vocals) i put it up on this blog and left it. I haven’t bothered with any kind of promotion since there won’t even be any kind of initial performance until around Easter of 2012.
And yet… well, some of you bought it right off. Gd bless you. But a funny thing keeps happening. I keep selling the 1st Act. Several times a week like clockwork someone comes along and buys it. It’s not that these numbers are gonna make me rich or anything, but without any type of actual promotion it just…. magically sells with regularity.
The one video i posted on YouTube, the Overture, with nothing but a random picture is closing in on 19,000 views with a portion of that traffic going to the blog and listening to the recordings, and a small portion of that actually buying it. (Keep in mind this is the internet. When anyone actually purchases music on the net it’s a minor miracle). The recordings, made only 3 months ago and not promoted at all other than on this site have about 10,000 listens. These numbers may not seem big, but this is before any type of actual promotion or performance whatsoever and all in 3 months. This blog has several hundred hits a day.
All i really do is sit here in a remote, isolated cottage in the mountains of Eastern Europe and plot world domination. Granted the amazing talents of Lauren Osborn, Kayleigh McKnight and Jason Broderick as well as the help of MProductions and Mark Swetz has made the tracks actually listenable (y’all heard me do falsettto. Trust me, i couldn’t carry a show based on those vocals).
So to all of you who are buying Act 1 (and the Random Tracks) THANK. YOU. Seriously. I don’t actually know who almost all of you are. But i love you. So from me to you, my thank you. Your Song.
