    artsy :cool:

    Yeah, it's weird, but I'm impressed. Cool idea.

    People have bought tracks, you can tell by the
    "top downloaded songs" menu.

    That was great. Thanks for the laugh Jon. Between this site and As The Apple Turns, I've seen some pretty good ones on iTunes. There's one where a guy is singing about peanut butter sandwiches.

    Well, I don't see any other Music Store with this :p

    I still don't know why ART PAUL SCHLOSSER is on the store but he is selling songs so it must be a good thing :D

    Cool... it's the ultimate in industrial "music".

    The first few tracks soud like noise, but the later ones start to put together some beats. Why not? It's as good as a lot of dance music these days, and it's probably harder to make.

    (Incidentally, the stereo seperation on some of those tracks as the print head scans back and forth was really spiffy.)

    LOL.

    That's pretty cool. I wish the songs were a bit longer though.

    i think this is one of the more interesting noise-music i've heard. really interesting concept, how certain letters and symbols sound differently, and "composing" with that. i wonder what it would sound like if you repeated certain words or phrases.

    the titles of the songs are what text is being printed to make the music.

    Why does this affect you at all?

    So what? What does this do to your existence that you must put up some "mock" outrage post over this being in the iTMS?

    Or is this simply a reaction along the lines of "my favorite artists/genre isn't on the iTMS but this crap is!"?

    And BTW CD sales are improving. People never seem to agree on the "causes" for declining CD sales; some say P2P, some say the music just plain sucks and some say the prices are too high.

    Well we are year into the iTMS, P2P is largely old-hat, the CD prices are still high and the music still sucks, so what else could it be?
