Ian Marquis gave feedback to Christie Grinham for “Silhouettes”:
Very nice contrast between the trip-hop feel of the drums and the singer-songwriter vibe of the guitar and vocals.

Ian Marquis gave feedback to Slopejaw for “Cuddle feat. Graham Eddy”:
I really like the low-fi feel to your main synth. This is a chill piece - very relaxing. Nice stuff!

It's been a while man. You got any new tracks? We're still waiting for 'Pink & Green' -s

I still want to buy one of these bad boys. Are you willing to accept AC? -s

Has like an asian flare to it. Or is that the stir-fry I ate for lunch. I love the little bit-tune fireworks you threw in there at the end of the track!

Thanks! This is the only time I've ever let my experimental effects "hang out" like that. I'm trying to do more of that lately.

I like the flow, $kestine. Full-disclosure I don't really love autotune, but I think that you did a really good job with your production value.

You guys are good lyricists as well. I hope you sell a lot of copies. Keep developing your craft, their is no limit!

I bought the tune, with AC, so make sure you get paid.

Be well. I look forward to more,

is this one of the ones you sent to the radio? I think you should. It's got a good beat and story, plus it's got simple lyrics for the average listener. -sho

I first did this track back in 2010, and I reworked it and made it even more excellent for the EP. I haven't sent it to the radio yet, but I think it's...marketable?

Look, in terms of marketability it's like any other asset, it's what someone else is willing to pay. For music, most people are not used to having to pay, so it's hard to make sales. Again, for me it's another example of 'the market' saying that they expect it to be free.

I imagine that something similar will happen in software eventually, since the expectation from the consumer point of view is not to pay, and since many programmers do their best work for free.

But ultimately, it's the value that your work brings to others. That is where we as artists get our biggest payoff, in my opinion.

TLDR: Gets you laid > Gets you paid :)

Ian Marquis gave feedback to Aardvark Farms for “Disorganize”:
I love the Lascaux feel of this. Really great lines, and a pop-art color scheme mixed with an almost prehistoric feel.

Ominous!!! Very mature beat. Seems like you are really continuing to develop your craft.

Vintage Marquis -- who is this girl on the track?

Big fan of the guitar outro as well.

Did you ever get your stuff out to the college radio station?

It's pretty cool, because this way everyone can make ads, not just 'businesses'. Ads are great, when everyone can make them! And the price is right, too!

I love that ad credits can be used to buy works AND buy ads - so, the community can operate without cash if that's what people want to do. Or, they can use money. Versatility is a good thing!

I could not agree more, and some people don't have PayPal, some people don't have cash, but this way anyone with a computer can earn credits and even create them. Three ways -- making new connections by giving feedback on the frontpage (which expands the credit base); having Ads show next to your work (you earn 100% of the credits for that!) And like you said, sales, for which you earn 100% of the transfer, no PayPal fee. Couldn't agree more; diversity is a very good thing!

I just noticed that the album payment options aren't quite as robust as the track ones (you can't set a "pay your own amount" for the whole set; no credits price or option). Is that a planned feature?

Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Ian Marquis for “Move Along”:
Very weird stuff, and I mean that in the best possible way.

If you like David Bowie at his best, you're gonna like this track a lot. But again, Ian this is what I mean; you're not going to hear this on the top 40.

It's probably no coincidence that I love Bowie and am forever caught up in chasing the weird, wonderful sounds that I haven't heard yet. :)
