Hi there. How do you usually name your tracks, organize and promote them to other people? I have this sense that the name on your track is very important, in order to be clear what the track's content is about. Or is it more intriguing when it's a bit mysterious? Depending of course what kind of an artist you are and what music you make, and what's the message. I ask these, because currently I'm building a of portfolio and website. I make music and other art in so many styles, so I want to make sure my possible clients and listeners can scroll through my work with ease, finding what they might be looking for or interested in. Here is an example how the music list could be: Track 1: Horror 1 Track 2: Adventure 1 Track 3: Adventure 2 Track 4: Horror 2 In this list the track titles have a strong prefix about the content, but lack personality or the story behind it. Now, what if those tracks were actually named with something not so generic, in the same order: Track 1: Dark Corridors Track 2: Flight Through the Sky Track 3: Dream Chaser Track 4: Haunted Valley In this list they are more personal and have some sort of prefix, but maybe a bit vague about the content. However, they might convey the story better. Of course you could combine these methods and do something like this: Track 1: Dark Corridors (Horror Music) Track 2: Flight Through the Sky (Adventure Music) Track 3: Dream Chaser (Adventure Music) Track 4: Haunted Valley (Horror Music) But is it too much or messy? Overall, my main struggle is that I compose a lot of music without actually knowing, what kind of music it is. It just comes from my heart and I'm a bit confused sometimes when the naming phase comes in. Any thoughts on this matter and everything related about promoting, organizing, naming conventions, creativity etc., I'm all ears. Thanks for taking your time to read this. - Edwin Glimmer
I'm inclined to music and I want to help a close friend. I wonder about some music artists. They need to find ways to promote their own craft and music. They need to get out to the masses to gain popularity. What do you think is the best method? Is the use of social media enough? How about an online fan connections to build their own careers? Which is the best tool should musicians use to market their music? Any thoughts?
