So, it’s finally done! This is my third book (and first non-fiction one, at that) and it is geared, specifically, towards electronic musicians.
Basically, all y’all!
I decided to write this because it seemed that figuring out how to make some well-deserved extra cash from your music or audio production online is not common knowledge, and if you really start asking around, you can find information, here and there, but it can be frustrating because you might keeping bumping into walls.
What do I mean by walls? I mean people who think you’re a sellout if you want to make a living from something you’re passionate about (your music) as opposed to paying the rent from something you don’t really care as much about (your job at McTaco Hell, for example)… I steered clear of this “purist” mentality, because, quite frankly, I’m not rich enough to not have to think about money, and about paying the rent.
So I got to work, and found as many helpful ways as possible (and brainstormed some new ways, as well) that electronic musicians can set themselves up on the right path with their creative passion to be in a position to fund future creative projects. This book also deals with creativity, and getting yourself into an organized mental space where you know what you want to accomplish, and have the huge amount of ambition to see it through.
This book is 83 pages, and written entirely by StrangeFlow, 2013. It comes in a zip package that contains the ebook in a variety of file formats: RTF, MOBI, EPUB, and TXT.
This book was written specifically with the electronic musician in mind, though many of these techniques can be applied to a variety of creative areas. Read on for more details, and for a free portion of the introduction chapter…
D.I.Y. Techniques for Culture Jamming 2.0, Niche-Hacking, and Feeling Like a Champion…
Learn how to combine Lifestyle Design with Culture Jamming, learn to “greyhack” (a form of niche-hacking) your music career, and establish self-sustained income-generating machine to feel like a super-ambitious and all-around champion while doing it. This is NOT a get rich quick book.
Culture Jamming, Greyhacking your music career, and establishing self-sustained income-generating machines to feel like a super-ambitious and all-around champion while doing it.
There are so many books out there about the music industry, and a lot of them seem to focus on ‘getting signed,’ ‘selling CDs, MP3s, and t-shirts,’ ‘how to get gigs,’ etc. Ok, but what else? Half the time, these books are geared specifically for rock bands and pop groups. But, I’m not in a rock band, I make electronic music. Really weird, underground electronic music. Is there any hope for folks like me? Do I have to choose between making music I love and making money?
No, that’s a bunch of bullshit.
Passive income generation for electronic musicians and producers is one of the main focuses of this book, and I want to share some techniques for setting up some income streams for creative individuals like you and me.
With the modern electronic musician in mind, I provide dozens of examples of this, as well as provide workable examples on how to greyhack (a term I use to describe the process of finding a creative niche in between two pre-existing artistic contexts) and tap it for all it’s worth to set up an automated income flow to fund your future musical endeavors. This is NOT a get-rich-quick book, but there is a lot of practical help in here that can really help if you’re looking to make money as an electronic music.
The point is, artists need NOT be starving… Anyone who tells you otherwise is full of shit.
