New Pagan Music "Group" (web page)

Postby malcolmb » 17 Aug 2016, 15:52

Soundcloud has decided to terminate all music "Groups" from 22 August 2016; these were Soundcloud pages each dedicated to a particular genre where Soundcloud artists could post their music. So the very popular Pagan Music Group I ran there is now defunct. A shame as lots of good music there by very talented artists.

But worry not! :grin: I have now started a new Pagan Music Group :yay: at:

https://hearthis.at/group/45415/pagan-music/

Early days yet with just a few of my songs at the moment but hopefully it will grow. The music will all be free to listen to. if you are at:

https://hearthis.at

and would like to post your pagan music at the Group, please do. I will moderate the Group to ensure that only quality acoustic and orchestral Pagan music is posted (but also Folk Rock and New Age / ambient if I like it!).

Blessings

Strange decision by soundcloud! Hope many musicians join you in new venue. Is it possible to get notifications of new postings to the group? Blessings, Linda.

Hello winterfire - it is a strange decision by Soundcloud. I did challenge their decision and the only explanation they offered was that the software maintenance of Groups was time consuming and that Groups did not appear to benefit the artists who posted their music. I cannot comment on the former reason but as to the latter, it seemed to me that a largely unknown artist (as most at Soundcloud are) with very few followers, immediately gained access to hundreds if not thousands of potential followers via a Group.

There is of course the fraught subject of copyright and royalties that is hitting the internet at the moment and I know that Soundcloud has in particular had difficulties on this. So perhaps this might also be an issue.

As to notification of new postings, I have just had a look and can see no easy way to do this without becoming a hearthis member. Many people do this (it is free) and I have just had my first non-artist follower there for my main music page.

https://hearthis.at/lyle-music-ss/

I suspect the best solution is to join hearthis and then join the Group as a follower. You should then receive email notification.

On a separate but related subject, my 2016 CD is now being prepared in a recording studio with a host of new singers including one I am told was an entrant for The Voice UK! I will post the best tracks (in my judgement!) in the Group - probably around October.

I'll second the strange decision motion :thinking: and try to get over to hearthis.at in the not-too-distant future :shake:
May the long time sun shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you,
Guide your way on.
