Circuit Static 2.0 [last update January 11 2018]
I have been talking quite a bit over the last couple months about my upcoming changes. I hadn't gone into any real detail since I was still working on it.
Here are just some of the expected changes:
- My musical style will have much more of a focus. When you hear Circuit Static music in the future, you will likely know it is mine (after you are familiar with my new music). I no longer plan to do 'all' musical genres. There are also so many genres for each slightly different focus, I am reluctant to classify my new music in a genre. I am sure you will hear some similarities in style, as I will still be solely creating the new works.
- My album releases will not be as frequent. I never expected to become so popular as an indie musician, I just make music because I enjoy doing it. Now, I want to ensure all my current fans, and fans to be, experience the highest quality in my productions. This means more time to produce, but I think you will all be happier with what is created.
- Despite my album releases not being as frequent, I plan on reviving an AudioCast version of The Circuit Static Show, now to be known as "House of Static". Some of you may remember when I did a low quality video pilot for it. Logistically, it wasn't possible at the time to continue and make a more quality show. Now it appears I can, especially if done as a radio style audio broadcast.
- I will have more promotions, such as giveaways, raffle drawings and more for those who can't afford Circuit Static products and music to still have a chance to get their own copies!
- More exposure. While it is true my music can be found virtually everywhere online, I will start working with more stores and performance venues. Not only will this mean physical Circuit Static media available in stores, but also more live performances (which are being improved and planned now). I even brought back my Video section in anticipation of music videos (not just the fan trailers and gameplay I currently have)!
- Other types of Circuit Static products are expected to be much more available. This includes C.D.s and other collectible media (possibly Cassette & Vinyl as well?). It will also include other items for you to show your support of Circuit Static such as t-shirts, stickers, buttons, and much more (from my store Tangible Technomancy)
- I expect my social media sites will see less of me, specifically Twitter. I had spent a great deal of time growing my fan base in the virtual world. This coming year, I turn to growing fans in the real world. I also expect to be far less personal on social media, but may be adding a Blog on my site again. This will give me far more control over how the content is posted, shown, and I don't run the same risk as getting blocked on social media by mistake (by the companies, i.e. Twitter, Facebook, etc.)
