    Default TOM COSM - minimal, electro, trance -Da Free Music Movement!

    :eek:

    http://www.cosm.co.nz/index.php?opti...-FUNKINGRU5ION




    Let me tell you about someone who is doing something interesting in the music industry.
    Tom Cosm is a guy who performs an interesting blend of minimal, electro, trance and
    whatever else he decides to chuck in there, using a laptop and various controllers.
    He promotes his musical project using word of mouth, keeping all of his music free for
    download to anyone at any time.
    Tom has used this method to become a well known musician and has traveled to perform
    and teach at some of the worlds most renowned electronic dance music festivals, including
    Boom Festival (Portugal), Rainbow Serpent Festival (Australia) and Ultra Groove (Brazil).
    The other interesting niche about this guy, is he makes all of his techniques available to
    anyone... no production secrets or exclusivity. His interactive website is full of tutorial
    videos and ready to jam Ableton Live packs, so people can see not just how he wrote the
    music, but how he gives a true live performance (he's not one of these hit-play-and-dancearound-
    like-i'm-doing-something live acts).
    One problem Tom does have, is writing profiles in third person. It always ends up sounding
    wanky, so I am going to stop right there and talk directly to you if that's ok, it's a lot nicer
    for me and I hope for you as well.
    You're reading this because someone made a decision that my project is worth spreading.
    Your task is to decide if this persons opinion is enough for you to take it to the next level
    and have a skim through my work your self.
    If anything in this write up has triggered your curiosity, I invite you come on over using the
    link below, I've set up a single page for you with immediate resources so you can quickly
    browse over the things I do and make your own decision.
    Word of mouth - it's the way I work. I don't have a label, I don't have any fancy releases
    and I am not going to be taking any scene by storm- but I will make sure everyone who
    ever respects my project will get it right back in return.
    Thanks for reading this far in an age of information overload.
    -Tom
