How about this for an idea.
You release all your recordings as a single package with a downloadable
archive and radio stream and ask for people to donate or pay for your
efforts in order to keep the music flowing?
Start promoting it around the net as the most accomplished Linux Audio
Jazz musician needing some financial support and we might actually see
people contributing some funds. Then you can keep making that awesome
sound and providing the backing music to the end of days while still
looking for dev work on the side...
We have the resources to enable this option!
It's just needs some elbow grease and some active promotions from the
community to make it a success. Even a couple of grand will be enough to
make it worthwhile considering that there are at least 200mil Linux
peeps of which a significant proportion of them like good jazz made on
the most advanced live jazz system running on the Linux Audio platform
we should be able to get a few of them to chip in actual cash as a show
What we are currently missing right now is the marketing drive. Given
that we as a community are more than capable of using the tools to
enable the marketing drive all we need is the will to do it.
In fact we could add others into this mix as well. Perhaps some of our
more accomplished Artists would like to take part in this exercise too?
Is the the birth of label.linuxaudio.org ?
