Congratulations on your new single!
I installed Amazon MP3 Downloader on my Mac-mini computer, but I found that I am not allowed to download your Jazz music living here in Japan. I hope we will be able to listen to your music soon in Japan.
I’m sorry, but looks like you’re going to have to wait for it to appear on iTunes. It just takes them a little longer than most other stores to approve newly submitted content. I’ll let you (and others) know when it hits iTMS.
Why “33”? I don’t know. It’s up to you to attach a meaning to it. At some point, one of the working titles was “Problems of Mobility of the Nobility in the Middle Ages,” but I thought it was really pushing it.
I rarely give names to my songs as I work on them. Depending on the setup, I just number them: Thought #21, Thought #22, etc. This one happened to be Thought #33, so I just named it “33.” If I make some sketches using a loop machine, I then name them Loop 45, Loop 46, and so on. I have about a hundred of these.
When I feel they can develop into something more complete, I promote them to “Thoughts.” Then, when they sound like something that I can call a song (usually somewhere mid-production), I give them “legitimate” names. For example, Thought #12 became “Snails Hight on Carrion” and Thought #20 became “Am I Lysdexic?” With “Thought #33” I just couldn’t come up with anything and just truncated it to “33.”
I don’t believe in “thoughtful” titles for instrumentals. Names like “Deepness,” “Eternal Wanderings,” and “Spirits Within” sound cheesy and pretentious to me.
I have listened to Astamoore on Youtube, thank you.
At another site called “vimeo,” there was a page titled “Magic Finger-Stretching Exercise for the Bass.”
How large and flexible his fingers are!
