Hope you had a good Easter! I had a nice Easter here, complete with too much candy eaten at once. Yum.
When I was in college, I submitted a few short stories to a magazine and I thought: “Gee, it sure would be nice if I had somewhere to send my music for editors to buy … but, alas, there are no music magazines like there are literature magazines.”
Now that I’m out of college and I have the time, I’m going to pursue this. It’s not quite ready for “prime time” yet, but if you’re a fan of my music and/or a composer yourself, I’d love to know if this looks at all interesting:
The concept of The Worlds Inside is to create a series of music albums that are treated like a magazine; a series that listeners subscribe to and receive a constant flow of new and outstanding music on physical CD albums. The Worlds Inside allows listeners to easily discover the works of new talented composers by featuring multiple fresh composers on each album.
The The Worlds Inside also gives composers an opportunity to sell their music. The composer pays nothing to get their music on an album and available in online stores. This allows a composer to do something with his work when he doesn’t have enough material to create a full album on his own and doesn’t want to wait. Finally, because the space on each album is shared by multiple composers, the talents and audiences that each composer brings helps “advertise” the talents of others.
Lastly, The Worlds Inside encourages the creation and sharing of new inspirational cinematic music. So often it seems organizations and institutions striving for “new” music seek more “avant-garde” works. While we certainly have nothing against such institutions, The Worlds Inside shows that there is still much more to say with the traditional tonal palette.
I’m still working on the details of the business plans, but I’m also rubbing my hands together with excitement…
Anyway, I’m going to keep it “rabbit week” for one more week since it was just Easter. Any suggestions on what noun next week should be? (I just do it for stupid fun.)
