CD Baby pays $10 million to musicians for CDs sold
Independent online music retailer CD Baby has now paid over $10 million directly to musicians for CDs sold worldwide through their online store at cdbaby.com.
CD Baby's easy consignment system has given every musician access to worldwide sales and distribution, without having to sign away their music to a record label.
While record labels are blaming piracy for a lack of sales, music sold through CD Baby has almost doubled every year for the past six years.
"It's easier than ever for music fans to find great non-mainstream music," says CD Baby founder Derek Sivers. "So what's reported as a sales decline for a huge pop star is actually a sales boost for the less-famous but more-talented musicians of the world. We sell thousands of CDs a day by artists you've never heard, but will love when you do."
Now, as one of the primary suppliers of music to digital download services such as Apple iTunes, MSN Music, Napster, Rhapsody, Sony Connect, MusicMatch, and more, CD Baby is helping artists everywhere get their music out into even wider distribution.
CD Baby has been a launching pad for later-famous acts such as O.A.R., Jack Johnson and Gary Jules. Other already-famous artists such as Thomas Dolby, George Clinton, Grant-Lee Phillips, and Beach Boy Al Jardine have chosen to use CD Baby's unique distribution service to release smaller projects directly to their fans.
CD Baby now represents over 75,000 artists and labels, making them the largest seller of independent music on the web.
For more information, interview requests, etc., please contact Alex Steininger at CD Baby firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-595-3000.

I read your broadcast on the Coltrane List. Jungs & Maedels is a small,
non-commercial, no-budget label based in Germany. Because most of our old

The new cd by bassist Jair-Rohm Parker Wells,
"Exquisite Noise" is now up and available on cdBaby.
"Exquisite Noise" consists entirely of improvisations
performed on the Fichter electric upright bass For those
of you who are interested in drones, noise and textual
(rather than harmonic) organisation, check it out here:
For those of you not familiar with Jair-Rohm Parker
Wells or his work, he has been a presence on the
international bass scene since the 1970s. His activities
range from hit recording sessions to recording and
touring extensively with the improvising bands Machine
Gun (with Thomas Chapin) and Doom Dogs (featuring
Reeves Gabrels). You can read more about him here:

NEW OAKLAND BURR
Rastascan Records BRD 051
John Butcher: soprano and tenor saxophones, amplified/feedback or
Gino Robair: ebow snare, cymbals, faux dax, motor, toy reed, styrofoam
Butcher and Robair first performed in Oakland, CA in 1997 and have
collaborated ever since, releasing two trio CDs
- 12 Milagritos with the late bass player Matthew Sperry
- Guerilla Mosaics with Japanese koto player Miya Masaoka.
New Oakland Burr follows their first duo CD, Liverpool (Bluecoat)
Concert (Limited Sedition)
“Butcher, who is increasingly being recognized as one of the
saxophone's pioneers in terms of extended technique (somewhat
frustratingly so, as his extraordinary virtuosity is always put at the
service of the music and should not be associated with any particular
trendy fad in contemporary improvisation), is in outstanding form and
percussionist Gino Robair, whose arsenal of instruments includes a
"faux dax" (a homemade version of Hans Reichel's famous
daxophone) and various bowed and motorized contraptions, reveals
himself once more as one of the most original performers on the
—All Music Guide - Guerilla Mosaics review
San Francisco based Gino Robair has recorded with artists as diverse
as Tom Waits, Anthony Braxton, Terry Riley, Lou Harrison, Eugene
Chadbourne, Peter Kowald, LaDonna Smith, and Otomo Yoshihide. In
addition, he has performed with John Zorn, Nina Hagen, Myra Melford,
the ROVA Saxophone Quartet, the Club Foot Orchestra, and he is a
founding member of the Splatter Trio. Gino is one of the "25 innovative
percussionists" included in the book Percussion Profiles, and he
served as Music Director for the animated television series The
Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat for CBS.
London-based John Butcher became known as a saxophonist after
finishing a doctorate on charmed quarks. Initial groups were with Chris
Burn, John Russell, Phil Durrant, Paul Lovens and Radu Malfatti. He
joined the final version of John Stevens’ Spontaneous Music
Ensemble; has played in a number of Derek Bailey’s Company Weeks,
and has worked in many contexts with singer Phil Minton. Electronic
music was an early influence on his saxophone playing - becoming
explicit in the Austrian group Polwechsel - which also collaborates with
Christian Fennez - and Thermal with EX guitarist Andy Moor & synth
player Thomas Lehn. As an improviser he continues to play in many
occasional, often one-off encounters ranging from large groups - Butch
Morris’ London Skyscraper and the EX Orkestra - to duo concerts - Fred
Frith, Jin Hi Kim, Toshimaru Nakamura and Derek Bailey.

FYI, I am a programmer on WKCR FM NYC (www.wkcr.org), and always looking
for interesting & worthwhile musics in a variety of genres, which stretch
boundaries into creative experimentation away from the normal commercial
stuff heard most places by most people.
Please pass on my info to artists/ labels/ distributors etc who want to
spread their art to NYC metropolitan area.

Nathan Hubbard, of San Diego's way-out Trummerflora Collective, takes this
opportunity away from the various ensembles to which his talents are
integral (see Cosmologic, The Skeleton Key Orchestra, Wormhole, etc.),
presenting instead a set of his solo percussion. Nathan's solos aren't a
whole lot like the drum solos you know and love from your rock and roll
period, though - he uses a combination of found objects, standard
trapset-style drums, a rack of contact-miked micro-sound objects, and
homemade versions of Cloud Chamber Bowls and other avant-garde percussive
instruments; and combines them with live effects processing to create
roiling avalanches of crunchy noise assembled with breakneck jazz precision.
A travelling virtuoso, to open the noise-heads minds and bolster the
Kathrine Heilesen hails from the frozen paradise of Denmark, which is way up
there near the top of Europe, where everyone is so healthy and prosperous
that they actually meet to solve other countries’ problems. But they were
not always as you see them today. Just a few short centuries ago, the
Norsemen were the most feared civilization in Europe, known to their
Southern neigbours chiefly for the ability to kill and plunder with
impugnity. “Vikings”, as they have been erroneously dubbed. Then one day,
in a council of Nordic kings and chieftains, it was decided that they would
lay down their swords and adopt a life of pacifism and a position of
neutrality in the struggles of other nations.
Ms. Heilesen’s music is the very spirit of this momentous decision. With
roots in nordic folk and other medieval European musics; she fuses harp,
traditional percussion, guitar, songs and spoken word; joining the stream of
post-modern Euro folk typified by In Gowan Ring and Sol Invictus. She was a
major contributor to the legendary world music collective The Otherworld in
Denmark, playing in jams alongside master musicians from all corners of the
world, and continues her work today alone and with a revolving cast of
collaborators. A distinctive feminine voice carrying messages between the
distant past and the living present.
Local recluse and visionary Brian E.H. Crowl works between the lines and on
the fringes of various free music scenes. His multi-instrumentalist range
stretches from sitar to analog synth, from sarod to saxadoo, from upright
base to pennywhistle. His collaborators have included freak mobs Peevish,
Super Unity Group, and the denizens of the 411 Collective, amongst many
others. The music is free improvisation built around the raga concept, yet
open to rhythms and insrumentation from all walks of music. Yes, including
country-western. Yes, including polka. Yes, including Cookie Monster death
metal. Versed in the immortal teachings of fallen master Ustad Harut Sic,
weaned from the tit of Western classical composition, Sub-Sic are commencing
to unleash their latent genius at last upon Portland’s live stage.

One of the strangest THINGS about D.I.Y. on the web is that (in the last four to five years) there are FEW places left for the truly indie musician (or LISTENER, for that matter)... many of th' zines have died, .mp3 sites have (often) gone commercial, & it seems (to me, anyway) to be EVER MORE DIFFICULT to find those artists who are recording THEIR OWN music.
For that reason, the "tone" of the D.I.Y. news page at IMPROVIJAZZATION NATION will change... we will ONLY post announcements about NEW CD's by indie artists - it does NOT matter what genre... SEND US the link to your new release catalog page (e-mail to: email@example.com )... ALSO (if you have it), the link(s) for where listeners can download your .mp3's! Do NOT (like EVER, people) send ME your .mp3 files... if you do, you will be BLACKLISTED at Zzaj Productions! We hope you'll spread the word FAR & WIDE... tell EVERY independent musician you KNOW... we WANT TO KNOW where all those "real" indie CD's & .MP3's are! We will post your link(s) in the most current issue's D.I.Y. news page!!! Rotcod Zzaj
Feel free to spread it to OTHER 'ZINES & radio stations you know, too, 'k?
An exciting and beautiful new CD from MANY AXES.
Featuring: Brad Dutz, Susan Rawcliffe, Scott WIlkinson...
From the album:
"The primary focus of Many Axes is exploring the potential of unusual
instruments. Our sonic structures emerge from spontaneous, improvised
musical communication among the members of the group, almost like a
conversation. But unlike a verbal conversation, all the participants
can "speak" simultaneously, weaving a surprisingly coherent musical
web. The diversity of our instrumentation allows us to explore a wide
range of soundscapes and moods with only three performers.
Most of the wind instruments we play were designed and fashioned from
clay by Susan Rawcliffe, who has made a lifelong study of ceramics and
musical traditions from around the world. This love of world music is
shared by Scott Wilkinson, who also plays an extensive variety of
winds, and Brad Dutz, who has collected myriad percussion instruments
from many different cultures. We combine these influences to create a
unique blend of sounds that evokes . . . well, only you can say what
it evokes in you. Whatever that happens to be, we hope you enjoy it."

Culture and Imperialism. A talk by Edward Said
"Imperial power is constructed on a bedrock not only
of force but of culture as well. Culture provides the
underpinning, justification and validation of empire.
Its crudest manifestation is perhaps Kipling's "White
man's burden." A more refined version is the French
"mission civilisatrice," civilizing mission.
Imperialism is often thought of as a European
phenomenon of the past. In fact it continues today in
new shapes and forms. The US carries out its imperial
policies behind the facade of democracy and freedom.
Culture and politics produce a system of control
that transcends military power to include a hegemony
of representations and images that dominate the
imaginations of both the oppressor and the oppressed.
This classic from the AR archives was first broadcast
in 1993. "

Steffan Basho-Junghans + Christina Carter
Steffan Basho-Junghans é dos mais importantes e inventivos criadores na guitarra acústica de cordas de aço, pós-Fahey e pós-Robbie Basho. A sua abordagem ao instrumento centra-se maioritariamente na experimentação das características e aspectos texturais e rítmicos do instrumento, a espaços coagulada com um trabalho mais focado na melodia a partir da escola norte-americana do fingerpicking. Tem uma discografia extensa, da qual «Waters in Azure», «Rivers & Bridges» e o acabado de sair «7 Books», todos pela Strange Attractors, serão os discos mais relevantes e emblemáticos.
Christina Carter é fundadora do duo-base dos Charalambides, cujo trabalho a solo mantém a mesma idiossincracia daquele que desenvolve ainda com o seu ex-marido, Tom Carter, no referido projecto. Tocando guitarra de cadências mântricas e hipnóticas, o seu trabalho vocal é devedor de experimentadoras de voz como Patty Waters, Yoko Ono e Buffy Sainte Marie. O trabalho dos Carters a solo e dos Charalambides está a ser editado e reeditado pela Kranky.

Liderados por Toni Fortuna, a voz dos extintos Tédio Boys que aqui se assume também como guitarrista, e na companhia de dois ex-Garbage Catz, Tó Rui na guitarra e Miguel na bateria, os d3ö movem-se no pantanoso mundo do rock'n'roll feito de 'groove' negro. São duas guitarras excitantes e uma bateria de balanço irresistível que estão na génese da música deste "power trio" que bebe inspiração no 'blues' corrompendo-o de forma electrizante. Os d3ö baseiam a sua existência na energia que transpira das suas canções e actuações ao vivo, diz quem os viu que são autênticas explosões de som e intensidade rock.

Mississippi Studios, Various Artists, and 36 Invisibles come together for
the first time to welcome an honored guest from the highest strata of freak
Doctor Eugene Chadbourne, legendary free guitarist and banjo, Knitting
Factory pioneer, fronted bands from Shockabilly to The 300 Statues Trio,
unstoppable force to tedium’s immovable object since his first release in
1975 inaugurated the groundbreaking Parachute label.
BBC Radio has this to say about the good doctor:
“Chadbourne has created an American folk music that never existed, a kind
of primitivist amalgam of blues, free improv and jazz; equal parts Derek
Bailey and Big Bill Broonzy. Ideal for the post-modernist back porch.”
Along the way to this unique musical aesthetic, Chadbourne has collaborated
extensively with fellow NYC giants John Zorn and Derek Bailey; and
sporadically with a diverse army of players that includes Charlie Haden,
Henry Kaiser, Fred Frith Violent Femmes, Camper Van Beethoven, Sun City
Girls, Wayne Horwitz, Toshinori Kondo, Carla Bley, Bill Laswell, Lenny Kaye,
Corrosion of Conformity, Butthole Surfers, Snakefinger, Jon Rose, Billy
Bragg, Eddie Van Halen, Michelle Shocked, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Holly Near,
Amy Denio, Jim O’Rourke, Keiji Haino, Jin Hi Kim, Mojo Nixon, Utah Phillips,
Boiled in Lead, Ronnie Gilbert, They Might Be Giants, Chris Cutler, Bela
Fleck, Jimmy Carl Black, Aquarium Rescue Unit, Gino Robair, Wadada Leo
Smith, William Parker, Mark Ribot, Olga Vogala, Zu Band, Mark Dresser,
Freeworm, Bitch and Animal, Bill Horist, and countless others.
More than anyone, Doctor Chadbourne is responsible for the fusion of
American country and western music with postmodern free improvisation;
starting with his group The Chadbournes in 1980. He was also instrumental
in the early years of the Home Taping Movement, that is the Lo-Fi Movement,
forming his own home tape label in 1982. He is an early builder of
electro-acoustic instruments, such as the Eletric Rake and the Prepared
Shopping Cart. He is the only musician ever to be simultaneously invited to
both the Vancouver Jazz and Vancouver Folk Festivals. He has played on five
continents, curated and participated in myriad series and festivals,
released scores of recordings. Those of you without a taste for this kind
of thing may be interested to know that Chadbourne was also Eddie Van
Halen's guitar teacher. Seriously.
And now he comes to us, to humble Portland, with his well-developed bag of
tricks in hand, ready to show us some sounds we’ve never heard before. Nor
will again, I shouldn’t guess.
Don’t miss it. Do you hear? DO. NOT. MISS. THIS. SHOW.

Après avoir débuté le saxophone en autodidacte, Guy-Frank Pellerin participe rapidement à de petites formations qui composent ses propres musiques. Il étudie l'improvisation à l'I.A.C.P. puis y enseigne le saxophone, ainsi que dans d'autres structures (conservatoires, M.J.C.). Guy-Frank Pellerin a joué dans de multiples formations dont le ''Celestrial Communication Orchestra'' d'Alan Silva. Il pratique le saxophone en relation avec d'autres formes d'art : la peinture, le théâtre, la danse, la poésie, sous forme de spectacles écrits ou de performances en salle ou dans la rue.
Il présentera ici, une série de pièces en solo : Aïku, au saxophone soprano. Il s'agit là d'une série de notes écrites : fruit du Masara, série transformée par l'écriture. Ces éléments sont alors employés au gré de l'inspiration du musicien créant ainsi une nouvelle composition à chaque interprétation. Une série peut avoir un titre qui guide l'expression du musicien et son imaginaire. Où l'improvisation nous emmenera-t-elle ?
Pourquoi Aïku ? La forme, l'esprit... ce qui, a un bref moment nous touche et se/nous révèle. Petite forme poétique précise... extrême, orient...

At LEM, we are not only convinced that a lot of different worlds can and do exist but also about the fact that even the most unpredictable type of music is a much better guarantee of peace than any other weapon... But life is not about music only and, yes, even us musicians think this way. We are indeed very interested in the world and in all those themes that might not directly refer to music but that they somehow affect they way music can be enjoyed. This is precisely what this festival is all about. It's about this world and about the musicians who not only propose free social and economic organizational models as an alternative to / (to confront) the growing mass consumism and its consequences but also have set the wish of freedom and the will/ (commitment to) of deep change. LEM owes a lot to the movements which brought pleasure back to life and culture, hence stimulating our curiosity, thus treating this project as our own baby. In its 8th edition, LEM gives shelter to 62 activities, featuring 160 artists of 12 different countries, which will spread about 17 spaces within the city, mainly in such peculiar and 'human' urban territory known as Barcelona's district of Gracia, core of this land that becomes an island (free territory?) in the so called emerging civilization which disgusts contrast and hides evidence while defending the difference and, with this hypocrisy, aims to materialize a world in which the superior/higher individuals are the ones who own arms, and the lowest ones are those less informed...
Barcelona is again the world's center of experimentation and these days, imaginary folklore, daily routine gulfs, monologues sang in 2 voices, cuisines which turn to music, glasses that sing, machines which cry and other desire-like sound objects will meet at this festival to the enjoyment of an increasingly bigger audience whom make all this adventure have more sense...Having crossed the line between two centuries, the festival acts as the wave that disturbs the uniform soap in which traditional aesthetics swim so as to reveal the unknown present and future. Pay careful attention to the program, the artists and the new venues because as Josep Pla once said "One of the best things about caviar is that, despite being so expensive, it's excellent". Put it this way: if caviar was cheap, it would still be excellent.
