++ An Opinion ++
And this week we saw a discussion on Facebook started by
a very interesting piece by Sam Rosenthal from Project!

Here the post from Sam:
What frustrates me is the attitude, "Oh well, creative people just
won't get paid anymore. Just the way it is." I know, I know! YOU ARE
CORRECT that the market has decided on what entertainment (music,
games, movies, porn, comics) is worth: as close to ZERO as possible.
Yet, at the same time, these same consumers want to keep consuming the
music we create. I'm not saying artists should get welfare to make
art; but I am saying that consumers should have more awareness that
WITHOUT INCOME FROM THEIR CREATIONS, creative-types cannot afford to
make art. Me? I'm fortunate that Black Tape For A Blue Girl has
patrons and crowdfunding supporters. I'm not arguing for myself, but
rather for all my friends who are artists, who trudge through day jobs
so they can afford to buy gear and spend money to make art that nobody
is willing to pay for (yet still want to consume).

Solid point Sam is making, it is getting harder and harder to release
a professional product now a day. The time and effort of many
musicians and other creative people is harder to achieve when the
creative minds need to work 40/50 hours a week in a normal job.
It gives them less time to be creative. A little bit of their time, effort and
creativity should be rewarded by those who enjoy their fruits!!
It is a sign of the times but it makes it for us as musicians and organizers
harder and harder to make great products or events.
Even this years E-Day with what I think is a great lineup struggles
to get tickets sold!!
Are we really going to have to stop making these musical events and
products. And in the end get stuck with less!! I wonder.

Thanks for your time
Ron Boots

======= Reviews ======
37757 BySenses - People

Less than 4 years after the fascinating Frigments-Fragments, BySenses
goes again with an album as much puzzling where the surprises, good or
bad, follow one another in a sonic décor simply outside of some
hearing tolerances. Because, and as was Frigments-Fragments, "People"
is an audacious album. Less psychedelic in its effects but not in its
vision, I would even say daring with a superb way of cajoling the
senses and the ears by its structures in movement where the snake
bites itself the tail and others which have this stability of the good
hymns of sequenced rock a la German sauce. This album, a very intimist
one from Didier Dewachtere, turns around his reflections and around
his inner emotions that the Belgian musician has lived and situations
where he won during his last 4 years. For this album, Didier
Dewachtere carried his music towards true voices which adjust their
timbres to the curves of the moods and of the passages, so giving a
new dimension to BySenses' arc of creativity.
And that begins with the rumblings of machines and the noises of metal
which we murder, before a layer of ethereal voices calms down the
temporary anger of the short "Intro". And the opposite occurs! While
everything is serenity with a seraphic choir and strata of
cinematographic violins, the finale stumbles towards the cacophony of
its introduction. These structures in continual struggling are the
witnesses of an approach all in contrasts and all in conflictual of
BySenses. The title-track drags us into the universe of boldness and
of delights of "People". The music trades its minutes for phases of
ambiences and of very Berlin School structures of rhythm and others
which flirt with Byron Metcalf's shamanic illusions, otherwise of
Steve Roach, but less frantic. Thomas Betsens recites a text on the
importance of people and their silences which bring our society on the
edge of the abyss. The word belongs to pe ople and when people will
speak … These texts were recorded on the music and it's with
fascination that we follow a curve of repressed violence which is
inspired by a music always on the edge of exploding without ever going
there. A little as the accommodating silence of a society in lack of
leaders. Does the voice disturb? We get use to it because of its
symbiosis with the dramatic elements of the music which is perfectly
balanced here. The timber goes from Timothy Leary to Wayne Hussey, the
singer of The Mission, especially on the following track. Thus, we are
in good company! "Sensitivity" is the survival to a love story and
puts again the pasty and hallucinogenic voice of Thomas Betsens in a
structure always divided between rhythms, which are less present here,
and ambient vibed which are fed by the disharmonious elements of
"Intro". This long structure of 20 minutes scatters very well its
sound effects, some are of an attractive organic tone, and the rise of
its rhythms which a re like an anger reasoned by invisible arms. The
texts and the voice of Timothy Leary remain elements difficult to
tame, except that they clearly give more depth to an ambivalent
structure and to its phases of ambiences which are hard to the hearing
by moments.
It's the very opposite with "Before Birth" whose phases of ambient
elements quaver like these spasmodic whispers bound to the tribal
universe of Byron Metcalf and of Steve Roach, in particular because of
the presence of guttural hummings which seem to be taken from an
effect of Didgeridoo. Written while he learnt that he was going to be
a grandfather, the music here offers a good balance between the phases
of ambiences decorated of sonic honey and these bits of evanescent
rhythms which come and disappear in the oral caresses, and at times
very childish, of Greet Laebens. "Before Birth (Extended Version)"
just brings additional minutes to the counter and they are
concentrated on the forms of rhythm in this title which ben efits of a
very nice tone at the level of synths. We pass at another level with
the heavy, muffled and jerky rhythm of "Short Memo" which is a pure
retro Berlin School. The movement reminds to me of the impetuous and
delicious Overture by Christian Richet whom we find on his album The
First which was released in 1989. Its older brother of tones, "Long
Memo" is very welcome in my ears. "Nightdancer" is too by the way, and
its heavy and lively rhythm which breaks the house down, in particular
thanks to Frakke on drums, runs beneath some superb synth solos with
forms and with astronomical colors. The music and the moods of "Why
Hurry@Midnight" inhale the spirit of the title. A nice synth wave
walks under the breezes of a magic night on which glitters the notes
of a pensive piano. "Whispering" proposes a structure as ambivalent as
on "People" and "Sensitivity", while "Nobody's Name Ends" is a title
of ambient vibes which rumble with furious elements in an intense
approach which rises i n crescendo. The CD2 offers small presents with
titles which show a bigger length to the counter or new mixes, as
"People (Guy TALLO Mix)" which turns into a title of dance music. I
had some difficulties in assimilating well the magic of "Live Post X
Sessions" where the voice of Thomas Betsens sounds as if it was coming
from the entrails of the Earth with its lot of ambient vibes and
elements which are not so too much far from this possibility. The
difficulty becomes especially more marked when the effects of echo
turn up between my ears. And when I have to close my eyes in hoping
that it will end soon…This is the only small moment which is in
conflict with my ears in this very beautiful and poetic album of
BySenses which continues where Frigments-Fragments had stopped, but
with a dose of boldness in more. "People" is available in a CD
manufactured version with an outstanding digipack 6 panels artwork
and/or in DDL on BySenses Bandcamp site where a bonus track is waiting
for you. Na m ely "The Messias" which is built upon an ambient beat
and wrapped of a very angelic approach where a celestial choir and
ethereal layers adorn the ringings of a melody which is dragging its
soul in the steps of a new Messiah…For those who believe.
