My second album for sale

Album Cover

I have remixed a number of my songs and created the album that I call “Insane”.

The music genre is mixed; some dance, some rock, some electronica, some just my style!

NOTE: The pricing is pay what you want. If you click a button to buy something, there is a place to edit the price to whatever you want.

I am excited about this obviously. It has taken some bravery on my part to see if people will pay for my music.  There have been some sales of the first album.

“Carcinoid” music video released today.

I got a great signal boost from The Carcinoid Cancer Foundation yesterday! The COO @CarcinoidNETs on Twitter tweeted about my new YouTube videos and she posted on the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation (CCF) Facebook page about my music and blog as well!

This is tremendous exposure for me and I am now trying to return the favor by posting a music video of my piece “Carcinoid”.  This music was composed in 2011 about 3 months after I was diagnosed with carcinoid cancer, during the time that I was quite ill from a treatment called chemoembolization or TACE (transarterial chemoembolization).  That treatment was supposed to be outpatient but I went into Carcinoid Crisis and spent the night in the Intensive Care Unit!  I was told that there would be “flu-like” symptoms for 3 weeks but mine lasted 4 weeks and for a week there was a fair amount of pain in my liver.  After the illness my symptoms from the cancer disappeared and my liver tumor shrank.  Unfortunately, after six months, the tumors grew back and the symptoms came back actually worse than ever.

The music is an echo of my emotional and physical illness from the cancer diagnosis and the treatment.

This music is a free download at my store.

YouTube Videos Loaded 2016-02-22

I have created some videos for YouTube to support my music store.  I am told that YouTube is the second largest search engine.  That means that more people will have the chance to see the videos and click on the link to the store.

Click here for my YouTube Channel.

These are simple videos which emphasize the music. I have also created a playlist for the album:

Playlist: Chillin It
Watch this playlist on YouTube

Since yesterday, I have received a few views and a couple of likes and a comment.

Since opening the store last week, there are a couple of sales and a few fans signed up.

Certainly not “going viral” but it’s a start.

Namaste,
Cy

Binaural Beats

A few weeks ago a friend of mine posted this on facebook: how-to-get-high-without-drugs.

It’s not a hippie/druggy thing.  It’s about a beat you hear when you have two different but closely related sounds, one in each ear.  The effect is said to be calming, relaxing and meditative.  It is called binaural beat.

I studied on this, found a number of references on the internet (even software to experiment here) and decided to remix my ambient piece “chillin it” with a background or pad made of a binaural beat.  This is the result but according to the literature you have to listen to it for 15 or 20 minutes to experience the effect:

Binaural Chillin It; 2015-Jan-01, ambient and binaural beat experiment.  Download

Happy New Year,
