Oh My God - Where Have We Been?

Oh My God - Where Have We Been?

So it's been a few months since we posted on the music2work2 website - and I'm sitting with Charlotte and we thought we'd better update the world with what's been going on.

We gave birth to Musicto

Musicto is our new record label and we've spent the last few months setting it up, getting the branding done, creating the DBA and bank accounts, doing the research, establishing the business model, creating contracts etc.  It has been one hell of a learning curve and we're not quite there yet.  Suffice it to say once all the setup has been done, we can get back to a more regular activity level.

Music To Grieve To

This turned out to be an insane labor of love - and I guess loss.  The music changed over time, the strategy changed over time - and half way through we took a complete sideways tangent to accommodate the project within the new label model.  We're super happy with the finished tracks and we're now waiting to get them back from mastering.  And yes - the waiting is hard!

What's Next

It should be pretty straightforward - the rollout of the album.  We'll write liner notes for each track that will be available here on music2work2 - in fact we might even get one going today!  We will then be releasing a track a week out to the mailing list - forever members will of course be able to download everything from the members area.  Finally as soon as the tracks are live in the digital stores we will conduct an outreach program on musicto that should drive traffic and listening.

Once Music to Grieve to is on it's way - we are turning our attention to a new album but this time we'll be publishing different artists - so - should be good.

For now - we have started live streaming on Facebook and back on YouTube - and of course we're pretty active over on Twitter.  This was something new from this morning's Facebook session:

New Image for music to write to playlist - August 2013

It's been a massively productive month and this new schedule of publishing every Monday is really starting to have an impact. Subscribers are up on the YouTube channel and membership is growing again - hooray!

We've been loving how Kylie's imagery sits with the July 2013 | Create Flow Playlist - it looks really cool and works very well with the music - thanks Kylie.

Next month's playlist is going to focus on the idea of music to write to; Charlotte and I have been hunting for the right (Ha!) image - and here it is:

The original image comes from photographer Ian Hayhurst. You can see more of Ian's photographs here and the original image before the crop here. Ian has kindly allowed us to use the image and we will be compensating him with a share of digital revenue.

If you're a photographer and you have imagery that evokes the idea of flow and you'd like to see your work associated with this kind of music - please do get in touch.
