Is your netlabel a not-for-profit entity? Or do you think that the netlabels should earn some money for artists?

Until now we are non-profit of just-interested-enthusiasts, however depending on how it goes we have giant plans, of course. We are not sure we can precisely tell you about such plans right now, else we will be out of this huge web labels business.

But whatever we could add - under conscience pressure, we are not going to make profits on somebody without his/her permission, and in general, we have enough money in our pockets just to keep this project free for anybody. Our interest is to discover new sides of music and everything which surrounds it. We think if you have came to music to make profits, it doesn't mean to be a real art.

My personal advice to all progressive musicians would be: first try to forget about the money at all. Money is nothing, your music is not. Imagine there are millions the same starters as you, which would like to earn on music, making it a job. The real music can't be a job. As I see often, those who are trying to earn on music, actually compose very poor stuff, because they didn't find their Identity.

When you have an Identity, you also don't need to worry about somebody stealing your music from you. I have read about some cases when somebody has published his music for the free download online, and pirates have stolen his track, re-publishing it on their compilations without any kind of permission (of course). Then somebody thinks he's been rapped, but actually, he's not. In that case he as a starter should just sit and relax, because the Real Music with the Real Identity always finds the listener, and the listener request the author to continue.

If you release Part 1, they want Part 2. If you didn't compose the music, but just re-published it under your own moniker, downloading somebody's track from the Internet, you have no chances to continue. Pirates just sell illegal CDs, they do not steal your copyright, but that way they also promote you to the unlimited audience which is ready to pay.

Many "stars" are saying: "First I compose music for myself... if it finds the listener, that's even better." Start with composing for yourself. Take a look inside yourself. What do you see? If it's a bank account, don't even try to be a star.

Not everything in this world counts. This is our main concept here, on INQB8R :-) We love exclusive works, and we wish Your work would be presented here in 2009.

Happy New Year!
