To our faithful listeners,

We've decided to formally shutdown thesixtyone.com -- our servers will go offline at midnight, May 1st 2017.

Artist tipping and music purchases will be functional until then, so please spend any remaining credits by month's end. 
A final payment will be made to artists following the shutdown.

thesixtyone was our baby for most of our twenties. We're incredibly sorry we weren't able to keep things going in the 
right direction.


Thank you for being a part of it.

first new upload in a long time. this is a relic of some older days when i had been in a blues band--bass player--and was fading out of it but i'd still get together and jam with friends. i hope some of you like it.

it's been a couple of months since i uploaded anything. i'm trying to get a couple of songs into shape to be worth listening to. i appreciate everyone's support and i trust you'll have some patience with me.

"random excursion" posted almost a month ago. my appreciation for everyone who has put in their support is almost indescribable.

on 4/18 i'll be putting up another song from my earliest days of composition.

art and music are passions for me, not a living. that's probably for the best.

Checking out your tracks here. Not sure how I missed out on this for so long.

Really digging "fantasy for impossible piano". Be back with more hearts!

It would be my pleasure. Whatever you need - co-production, mixing, general badtouching - just let me know.

Greetings -

You group as been mentioned as suffering under the T61 point algorithm. There is an interesting discussion going on on our wall we thought you might like to see.

Fun and adventurous. I would love to here more instrumentation on some of these. Do you have access to other sounds?

great new work dear sir.....

it definitely has tempo
it makes me think of an 80's video game bonus level.....on a late night with too much Southern Comfort, but as odd as that sounds.....it is moderately nostalgic....

definitely a fun piece.....

Its like people who decry the loss of "Proper English" or "The English Language" (or any language, for that matter....seems most cultures have these people). They have no clue that language is not some stolid prescription writ by god at the dawn of man....it is its own living entity, uniquely formed and conceived by every individual mind that produces and subsequently interprets it. Its a floating dance of indeterminacy.... a sense of the moment... an evershifting metaphor upon metaphor. Dig?

It seems to me that those people most insistant on declaring what can and cannot be music (eg. those who commented negatively on your december night piece) probably also fail to truly appreciate even the more tradtional routes to music the cling to....if they cannot appreciate the potentiality for musicality found in all things.

Sweet. Schoenberg, eat your heart out. There something about that mechanical midi-ness that always bugs me a bit - though it does lend a certain mania to the presentation. Well I enjoy following your compositions nonetheless. Sounds like you've been repressin some rage to me. ;-) I m heartless at the moment. But I shall return. I just put up a semi ridiculous 22 minute odyssey on my Eric EXiT page. I'm gonna leave there it there no matter how badly it flops though! ;-)
