Compositionally, I don't hate my old stuff at all (even all the way back to being an 8 year old sitting at the piano). They were certainly much more naive pieces though.

I'm curious what the database stats are. How many members have uploaded, average songs per user, how many song for users who haven't logged in in over 6 months and stuff like that.

Currently the music section doesn't really seem to work that well as a showcase because there is such a huge volume of content, I personally tend to listen to albums / eps from net labels I like as they have already gone through at least one quality / curation / whatevet filter. The consensus seems to be nobody wants a chart / automated ranking system based on likes / comments / plays per week or month. Also nobody seems to want to step up and curate a periodic selection. I think a forced quality control on the users by limiting the number of songs will go some way to solve the volume problem but it is still a pretty large chunk of tunes.

Ideally I would like to see an automated weekly top 5 based on something like the 8bc filter trash 80 wrote for the "top" 5 songs then a curated weekly list of 5 more "hidden gems" displayed at the top of the page with the wb player for back end. If "drama" is a concern then we could lock comments on those "top" tracks for the week following or something.

Edit : sorry another idea, top of the page could be. : Top5, hidden gems, all 3 tracks from the "artist of the week" that would be 13 tracks at the top of the page all curated or selected by different criteria, a nice little cross section of what the site has to offer content wise.

What if the top 5 curated artists each choose a track for the next week? On top of and automated "most liked" thing. If one doesn't pick a song one week, then it will be given to the most popular automated artists, descending from the top of the list.

So we start with 5 people to curate 5 tracks. Then those 5 artists curate for the next week. And fall back on the automated list if needed.

Or something.

That's a system just begging for a circlejerk. Just saying.

I personally like the idea of limiting tracks to 5 (Although I don't really use the music section anyway). Fact of the matter is that there are a lot of free services for hosting your tracks and barely anyone goes and listens through the back catalogues of artists on cm.o. At least, I don't know anyone who does. Bandcamp/soundcloud seems to be the way to go for that kind of thing.

Best weekend ever.

Little two-track split that pulls influence from the likes of Morricone, Sergio Leone, and American Frontier culture (sure, why not!).

Enjoy smile
