I'm glad to see you acknowledge it's not pure silence...at least for a moment. I think we get that you're not a fan.Devoleb wrote: ↑Tue Jul 23, 2019 8:21 amI think this project is stupid......meaning, releasing 5 vinyl and CD sets with nothing else than pure silence/silent ambient noise is some kind of art I don't like/understand......its a waste of money and sources. I might stand alone with this and that's ok.
If I want silence I'll go and sit next to the water at our house (I know not everybody can do this), if I want silence I'll walk into
the forest 2 minutes away (I know not everybody can do this). If I want silence I turn off all electric machines, not starting all up to spin.....nothing!?
I've too late found out that this project is some kinda art and the money coming in are going to charity (that part I really like though)
Not meaning to hurt anybodys feelings when I'm saying this project is stupid, but I will more likely buy real music and then to another side give away money to support 'real' charity....have several friends who died with cancer so most charity money from my hands will therefor go that way.
If this project should make sense in any way (to me) it should be made as 58 music videos instead with all artists recording everything from their home studios so you could see how/where the do their 'stuff'.
I highly respect that charity will collect money to people who needs it, but again doing this as 'no sound' thing only is nonsense to me......but again if Mute can get people pay for such a thing getting charity it's kinda a good thing
However, I do feel the British Tinnitus Association is a "real" charity. You can argue that cancer is a more dire issue, and I agree; I'd sooner be deaf than die of cancer, but it doesn't mean tinnitus is not a "real" issue. Still, we all have charities close to us, and that's yours. Music Minds Matter would seem to be important too, providing the general services they seem to to the musician community, but I'd personally prioritize tinnitus before them. That doesn't make them not "real" to me, however.
I understand yours and Mark's distaste for this, but try to look at this as a positive endeavor that's just not for you. Perhaps it will spur other similar projects that are up your alley.
