Thank You For More Than 1,200 Hits

I would like to thank everyone that made the first week of the On a Rainy Day EP‘s release successful, including but not limited to the netlabel underground blogs that repeated the news of its release, spreading it quickly around the world. It had nearly twice the site hits as Release Zero did in a year. Now, I doubt the accuracy of the archive.org hit counter and assume that for every download of the album, each track and piece of artwork is counted as 1, but even considering that, it’s a much larger response than I expected, and still much more than Release Zero. Again, thank you to everyone around the world.

There was not a corresponding CD created for On a Rainy Day, partly to speed its release, and partly because I don’t believe the demand for a physical copy exists. Feel free to contact me if you think a physical release should be considered.

The music on this site is created for my personal enjoyment of the process of creating it, so it is always wonderful when someone else enjoys the result.  Thank you once again.

This was supposed to have been released in March or April, I’m sorry that it took so long.  Regular followers or SounDevotion regulars will recognize that I’ve themed the EP after a tune I created as an entry; from the beginning, I wanted the song to flow into a greater work that included some pieces that I originally composed in One-hour competitions but have been restructuring and improving over the months, until I could give the entire thing a nice flow.  The climax of “Found, At the Edge Of the Forest” was an entry for SDCompo as well, this piece given slightly different mastering and some real guitar to assist the sound of the sampled one.
