Happy end!

 

 

   

 So…

It’s time for a summary of 2009…

I started my solo project ASATRON in December 2008, just for fun…

I had a lot of unpublished songs and when Strangers in Wonderland decided to take a break I started ASATRON.

I had no intensions to be a big rock star or something like that, just wanted to share my music if someone was interested.

I started a MySpace page and uploaded some songs. And I was very surprised when I suddenly had a lot of friends and visitors.

I was a beginner at marketing and had no idea how to reach listeners. But working with S.I.W  taught me that there’s a world of music lovers out there… The podcasters.

So I created an account on Music alley and uploaded some songs there to. (Still just for fun)

In April I got my first message “your music has been played in a pod show”. At that moment I thought it was one of S.I.W’s songs and became very surprised and flattered when I understood it was ASATRON and “Little sister”…

Today my songs has been played in about (Known by me) 40 shows and add to that 5 songs in rotation at web radio.  I think that’s pretty good for a project started just for fun…

I also gave an interview and was artist in the spotlight twice.

My Christmas song was included in I don’t know how many Christmas special shows.

Obviously there are some people out there who like what I do and that makes me so proud and flattered. If you, dear reader, is one of them,  I would like to thank you, every listener is important to me.

The music I created 2009 is all right from my heart. As I work all alone every tone, every little idea or sound, comes from me… No compromises. I made the songs just as I wanted them… Of course I asked for feedback sometimes but the decisions were always mine at the end.

I also send 12 (Totally different)  songs to Eurovision song contest, without success of course but I didn’t count on being represented there anyway. I had a lot of fun recording these songs though…

Yes, I’m satisfied with my music and if you wonder who’s my favorite… I can’t answer. Every song has its own background, all collected from the life I live. Some of them are pretty dark stories but I believe in taking the problems to the edge before you leave them…. In that way my music is my therapy…

I released two singles, just to see how it works. Not for making money.

I started my own homepage in November (After two months lost in the web design jungle)and I’m surprised by the increasing numbers of visitors .

I started to make a video but am not satisfied with the result… It’s hard to shoot yourself…

(and I look terrible….:I )

So, how will I go on?

I will continue to record my music, and give the video a new chance…

I will go on playing with the cover band and hopefully play live with ASATRON. I would like that very much!

I will continue giving my music away for free, I’m not in this for the money, but I will also release new singles for those who like to support me by buying my songs.

 

I think 2009 became a better year for ASATRON than I could ever imagine.

 

To all of you who believe in me and support me I would like to say Thank you!
