I launched mjttnetworkmusic in June 2015 as a radio channel with rare exotica and minimal synth records plus as a parallel music website for my own ambient and experimental records back then. Soon I decided to left the radio channel and to concentrate on music creation only. And at this moment (autumn 2019), all 130+ full-length albums here were made by me only (i.e. all tracks and graphics and mastering and producing) so this is not a label or company, it's just one man project. But I assume that in future I'll be able to accept some other peoples' records, though I'm not interested in that currently.
I started making music in 2009
, my first instruments were a computer with Linux + AMS modular synth + zynaddsubfx synth with Ardour DAW, what was the stuff I started with back in 2009, it's MIPHNICHA in the mjttnetworkmusic catalog, experimental ambient/drone. I'm still using Linux with Ardour as of today.
During the years, I had my own fully equipped studio with all the real life mixers and recorders (things like roland vs 808(?), korg ms20, some other korg synths (I don't remember names), 505/drum machines, akai mpc2000, roland mv 8800, some effects and reverb plates, tapes and vinyls) - I sold everything in 2013 or so, I found out that it was nonsense to work with all those, a computer is much more flexible and comfortable to work with. After I sold everything I started to use a computer only for music since then.
All my music, art and philosophy books are free to download and distribute (you can't sell any of my art or make money from it). All free because it's obvious for me now that selling digital information copies such as music or books is stupid; one can make millions of copies in a second to sell, it's like selling air or something. I despise digital market and patents, I don't see much sense to participate in such things. If you're bothering how I make money with such principles: I work on my own as a computer graphics expert creating useful services for business & tech fields.
Tho I get invitations to make a show or to be a dj somewhere from time to time, usually I don't accept 'cause I'm not interested at all. I prefer to use my time for developing real art and knowledge rather than drink at parties amusing somebody. I do not use any drugs and I strictly recommend you to do so too
. Drugs are a big illusion and you must not trick the mind, the road is always straight. I had some experience with all and I know what I'm saying. If you have some problems on your life way, consider to read Seneca's The Epistulae Morales ad Lucilium.
One may ask why I use so many pseudonyms: answer is easy: various names are just for various music ideas (das = very experimental, swhq = melodic rhythms, mjtt means nothing, optmay = hitech ambient, etc).
In 2019, though I'm just 28 years old only and still having a lot of energy to continue to produce music, I decided to focus all my power on philosophical writings instead (I'm interested in philosophy of mind and life, the information theory, aesthetics and ethics fields). In particular, I've created the https://standaloneblog.com
for that, a project on which I plan to work for the rest of my life; it's supposed to be a blog but with constantly books releasing cycle, once or two times a year. I'm still going to compose ambient (primary) and beat (secondly) records here from time to time, but it will be much less often now than before.
