Is it possible for an expanding capitalist economy to remain within safe ecological limits or is it doomed to fail ? Capitalism requires constant growth, profit and production with an increasing population to remain stable. Without sufficient consumption, which creates more demand for production, the cycle would be frozen and capitalism would fail. These mechanisms do not provide incentives for preserving the environment and it falls victim to this compulsive behavior. Is the sharing economy an answer. Is Free Music Archive an example of sharing yet still giving listeners options to support the artist to keep making music.

Abiogenesis 'The creation of life from non-living matter', also known as spontaneous generation. That term explains how this album came into existence. Coming from an electronic engineering background with a focus on sounds and audio I spent over 10 years experimenting with sounds, building tracks and putting down ideas but I always discarded all material and tracks before completion due to not being a professional musician and thinking they had no artist value.
Even professionally trained musicians and artists struggle with finishing tracks and releasing material. I have since learned that the more you finish, the more you progress which becomes motivation to do even more. So be spontaneous and finish those tracks when you feel creative, someone will like them, even if only a few fans. Do not worry how it might be received or if a label will sign you otherwise you will never finish anything. I was fortunate to eventually release some of my music through a label but I also still self release and it is no longer seen as being any less credible. There are many great artists which give their work for free on FMA and other sources so why not join them.
