Recently I’ve been reading up on independently releasing records etc and I must say I’ve learnt a HELL of a lot of stuff I would have never even thought about. My notorious notebooks are jam packed with different ideas and plans of action. This is all good news, however it seems to be a lot of work for one person, i.e myself.
I’ve dabbled in to management, been calling different offices up here and there (before my phone broke) and trying to get a rough idea of costs involved with hiring a manager. The results were somewhat miserable. As far as I could find, the only managers that are able to do the things I have plans for, are far out of my budget for the first release, around November time. Therefore it looks like its going to continue as a one man team for now. Trying to balance distribution deals, online and offline, media work and other promotional goings on is going to be a lot of work but I’m pretty determined to get it done!
As far as I’m aware, at the moment, Epic Noise Guy is a kid who’s had a go at making some tracks on his laptop and has played the odd gig here and there, made some ridiculous videos and spent his wages on some silly things. However, I think it’s time we stepped up a level or 2. Or 3.
By October or possibly November (there is no confirmed release date as of yet for the first single), I plan to have Epic Noise Guy’s name splattered across Europe, be that by magazine coverage, via online news sites and of course, attempting to climb my way up a few ambient Techno charts here and there.
Before all this though, as I’ve mentioned in my previous post there is a hell of a lot of work that must be done before any of this can take place. For example, it is next to impossible to get a decent review (be that online or in print) without a bunch cliche techno promo photos:
