My New Album: Electric Symphony (Free D/L & Streaming Links)
The following was originally posted on my artist blog.
For readers who are new, in addition to working in tech and investing, I also compose music in my free time and keep my community here up to date on new projects.
It’s been well over a year since I released my previous album “Untold Story” …but even before that I started working on another new project called “Electric Symphony.” I’ve been composing & producing the tracks on this album for about 2.5 years and finally got to a point I am happy with how everything turned out. This is my 6th original album released under creative commons (read about my previous experiences releasing art under this license, something I believe is enabling the future of free culture).
Download options / streaming links & tracklist after the jump, plus how I plan to market the album.

Re, how I plan to promote this album:
I’ve documented my success sharing music under creative commons in the past and know from pings I’ve helped some artists with promotional ideas. Of course I’ll cover all the normal digital sharing tactics but one outside the box idea I wanted to try was send custom-branded micro jump drives to some music bloggers, influencers etc. as a way to stand out and give people an ‘artifact’ the album. As a vinyl fan, I find there’s something special about actually holding music in physical form.
What’s cool is these ultra-thin drives are 4gb and have come down about 3$ per unit if you get over 200 of them. CDs are dead but jump drives are still very usable especially if you want to share large uncompressed files. I’ll report back how this works out later. If you have other creative ideas for marketing music I’d love to hear.
