It’s been a while, but a lot has been happening.
Here’s a roundup.
We got a chat room, in case you have not dropped by yet. Come waste some time with us LIVE! and talk about music, alonetone, or the latest funny youtube video you saw.
What else is new? Well, the very very very beginnings of my “secret project” are starting to bear fruit.
It’s called ListenApp!
Listenapp! it is an “iTunes-like” way of browsing the music on alonetone. Basically, it is built for the listener (hence the name) rather than the artist (which is what alonetone is all about).
Only the very very basic features are in place and it still has many quirks, but if you have Firefox or Safari, you are welcome to poke around. IE will NOT work yet, but support for IE7/8 is planned.
I’d love feedback, and we got a whole bunch of goodies planned for exposing the music in a listener-friendly way. alonetone has always been about artists, so it was time to create something for listeners. It’s going to be a long ride getting this thing going in my free time on top of work, music, and alonetone, but it’s going to be great.
Need to make music? Right now? Like all day?
Jump on board and get a 24-hour album done with some support of your fellow alonetoners! A few of us are ROCKING RIGHT NOW: Saturday, August 1st. What is a 24-hour album? It’s 24 hours of you making music with the goal of getting an EP at the end of the ride. It’s exhausting, exhilarating, exciting, and many other e-words worth of fun. Check out the albums from last december and come chat with us about it if you are interested.
That’s about it. Hope everyone is having a pleasant summer, and remember to keep your strings in tune, your throats cleared, and the midi keyboards dust-free.
