► Not a great year

Hey there,

Reflecting on the year, it's been a rollercoaster of challenges. It's not been the easiest ride, but I've found some silver linings.

The highlight for me this year was contributing two music tracks to The Sound of SceneSat Volume 7. The support and feedback from the IRC chat and Discord on release day were truly heartwarming. Despite the positive responses, I've been facing a bit of a hurdle in gaining downloads for my tracks. No matter how much effort I put into sharing them across demo scene platforms, the traction seems to be missing.

Looking back, I've created what I believe are some really stellar tracks - pieces like "Stroke," "Night Air," "Headlock," "Mechanical Love Song," or "A Martian Song." They've received high praise from esteemed demo scene musicians like Saga Musix and stand out as some of my best work. However, reaching an audience seems to be the challenge. It's disheartening to not see the expected engagement, and it's starting to impact my enthusiasm for releasing new music on my website.

Considering these challenges, I've been contemplating the future of melcom-music.de. The dwindling traffic and the lack of interaction make me question its viability. I'm leaning towards focusing more on demo scene projects like The Sound of SceneSat instead.

It's tough when praise doesn't translate into downloads or positive engagement. Posting on platforms like Modarchive occasionally shines a spotlight on my tracks, but the response has been limited. I'm left wondering where the disconnect is. Unfortunately, I haven't found the answer yet.

A similar pattern extends to my presence on social media platforms like Twitter and YouTube—I've struggled to gain a substantial following. This trend has persisted for years, and it makes me question the quality of my music.

For now, these are the thoughts on my mind. Looking ahead to the upcoming year, I'm considering focusing solely on specific demo scene projects and might consider the future of melcom-music.de.

Rest assured, I won't rush into any decisions. I'll take the time to weigh things thoroughly. Let's see what the new year brings.

Wishing you all a warm Christmas and a fantastic start to 2024! πŸŽ…πŸŽ„☃️πŸ₯³πŸ·
