ADSactly Music Initiative #11

Hello you amazing Steemians and musos, hope it has been a good week for everyone since our last update. I know everyone is probably having a not so great day today, due to the markets falling as they have today. The long wait just seems to get longer every week, but don't let this get you down, keep steeming and go listen to some of the great music you are able to find here. Hopefully it will cheer us all up a little.


We got together and decided we wanted to do something in the music space, as there are so many budding, talented musicians on the Steemit platform. We noticed that, although there were a lot of people posting, it felt like some of the contributors could use a little helping hand. I mean, who wouldn't want a little helping hand, right?
So where could WE add value? We could use our own in-house production people to help develop music for fellow Steemians looking for that little extra audio assistance.

We'll be running an initiative whereby Steemians can post their links below, and if the criteria are met (please read the criteria), we'll dig in with them and help mix their track, or add some instruments that they feel are missing from their song, or some little production techniques. If there isn't actually a post that our producer can work with, we might even just decide to give one of the entrants a bit of upvote love.

As time goes by and we put together enough collaborated content, we will then upload this content to digital stores (iTunes, Spotify, Deezer, etc.) and release a compilation album.
The other avenue where we would like to add value is to sync the music to commercials to try and develop some additional passive income for the artists.
Where will this go?
....Only time will tell!

Our Previous Winner

We’ve decided that we would like to give some upvote love to @drumoperator

In our quest to bring exceptional music from all over the Steem blockchain, we got a great submission in our last Music Initiative post from @drumoperator. The track is a very experimental has a great rhythmic progression to it, and a rather fresh vibe to it. The best way to explain it would be in the words of the composer. "It's an incredible deep dive, each subsequent listen revealing new timbres and percussive effect automations previously unnoticed, and it found me at a time when I was aggressively searching out the least melodic, most forward-thinking sonic landscapes as inspiration for my own creations." If you would like to check out the original post from @drumoperator you can here.

Wow, I like the superposition of sounds! It is a piece of highs and lows, very futuristic, but also with some trivial tones. I love it! The reiteration of some sounds gives it strength. I manage to see the brain behind the waves, the lines; that spaced end is a genius. I imagine it in a dystopian scenario and my skin is bristling. Congratulations to @adsactly for the project and to @drumoperator for such an excellent piece. Good work and success.


Thanks for the kind words, @nancybriti!

The initiative promoted by you, Ross Dabone and Mork Rock, is working well. This electronic music composition work by @drumoperator is very interesting. I like its minimalism: its percussive reiteration and almost fugue effects; that reiterated background sound (as in the baroque "basso continuo") and its insertions of bass or treble sounds, sometimes, create that auditory atmosphere that is perfectly in consonance with the mental attitude well collected in its title: "Abstractions". Thank you for allowing us to get to know this musical experience.


This guy gets it. 😎

Yeah. My week was just so great and awesome to the glory of God. Music is part of life and it always give me more encouragement when i listen to music and so this really made me to listen to music a lot and to learn from the lyrics
