Big Juan

A pretty polite comment, I thought.

Hey FMA'ers. I've had an interesting day.

I'm used to people using my music in their projects. In fact at this point, I expect it. It would be weird if they didn't. Out of the roughly 250k downloads my songs have gotten, I'd bet at least half of them were for use in a video, on a podcast, or for a school project. And I love and am so grateful to everyone who does this because without it, I probably wouldn't be doing this anymore. To be honest, I think the FMA made my career what it is, and I owe it and the whole free culture community so much. That said, there is a limit to the freedom of my culture.

I woke up at around 11am this morning, because I'm a college student, and saw a couple of Twitter notifications (@stevecombsmusic, by the way). A German fan, @ruhpkid, tweeted at me to say that some guy named Big Juan put a copyright claim on a YouTube video of his in which he used my song, More Or Less OK, from my new album Riotwhich is available here on the FMA. Ruhpkid gave me credit and was generally wonderful. But Big Juan was claiming that my song was his song, Equalizer. At first I didn't think anything of it, that it was just a misguided attempt at stealing royalties or something. The joke would be on him, of course, since I don't get any kind of royalties. But I did a Google search for "Equalizer by Big Juan" and found the song on YouTube.

That's when I got angry.

I hear the first three seconds, which is the same opening drum fill as my song, and think "Well, maybe he just sampled it and forgot to give credit." But it quickly became clear that that wasn't the case. This wasn't a sample, this was a theft. Big Juan literally downloaded my song, changed the title, and put it on YouTube as his own.

The Steve Combs Wiki

Hi folks.

Because we all die eventually, I feel that it's better to be proactive when it comes to preserving my legacy, questionable though it may be. I present to you this, the Steve Combs Wiki. it is a knowledge base to devoted to my obscene number of songs, ridiculous number of albums, singles, EPs, and compilations, and basically everything else related to me. The problem is, it's a gigantic task for one narcissitic man. I need your help! Yes, you! Go to stevecombsmusic.wikia.com to contribute to my ego-building monument to self! 

Thank you.

There are monsters in that soul, waiting for you.

Hello monsters,
thank you so much for waiting so long.

The silence is carefully filled with soundwaves.

Ana Bogner - Multiple Proportions [hpcd108]

And then, all of a sudden, as if the storm came to an end, the room became silent. One heard a silent rattling reminding us of sundering thoughts, but still the room was silent. There was a roar of anepia around us, a shaft of light above the horizon starting to scream. Then we lay, floated, lay again on the constantly shapeshifting floor, being held by contemplation’s grip. Bridges formed, ruptures yawned, their mouthes, wide open at first, slowly closing (this is the work of our scars set in motion). There are monsters in that soul, waiting for you. The spiral repulsed, and the waves broke against the rock, untiredly seeping further towards the Nothing of this world. You’ll be found by waves which pass through everything, and if you dare to follow them, you’ll find entropy. But not an entropy of loudness, no. An entropy sketched and betokened, an entropy enmeshing and unwinding. And all of this in a feedback of reciprocity, freed from the hierarchy of a predetermined approach. It repeats and remains non-identical to itself. Since I built it in my mind i know: they haven‘t built the city we need. The room was filled with sound, but still the room was silent.

///


2015 will be a bit louder for us, for headphonica, for you.
Lezet prepared a great compilation - as to name one highlight.
But LEO dictionary told me: Don't cross your bridges before you come to them.
So let us please our ears with the musci of Ana Bogner.


///

This release is a friendly collaboration with the relativ kollektiv from Leipzig/Germany.
We are looking forward to a long lasting friendship. ;)


Warm greetings.
Yours Headphonica.
