To stream an MP3, just click on the link (but some players will download the whole song before starting playback). To save to your hard drive, right-click and choose "Save target as" ("Save link as" in Firefox). To save one you have just streamed, click on "Save as" in the File menu of your music player, before clicking on another song. NB If you are using a dialup connection, it's not worth trying to stream MP3s of this quality, as you are likely to get a lot of long pauses while the computer fetches the next bit of the song : so download them instead, and play them from your hard drive when they have finished downloading.
The Real Audio files are optimised to stream non-stop over a 56k dialup connection. You will need the Real Audio plugin, standard in most browsers. If it isn't installed in yours, go to the Ultraspace Real Audio Page for more information, including how to download it for free.
was never about making money.
Like a lot of artists, I just want my music to be heard. So I've decided to
offer the whole album for free MP3 download. I'd like to thank the fans, whose
encouragement and requests for albums motivated me to get this organised. I
may add a few bonus tracks in future, so come back and have another look every
now and again, even if you've already downloaded the whole album. Enjoy!
How to describe Jon Storm's wonderful solo album? Contemporary alternative binary folk music, perhaps. Gorky's with a hint of Fairport, thrust forth into the new millenium.
A bit like Catweasel dropping
into the heart of the "tribal gathering" (with a spiked drink). The
Incredible String Band, in a big freaky electric spaceship steered by Sandy
Denny, would probably set their dials for the heart of this particular
Storm. Personal, oddball, beautiful and entertaining. A Wifty Wafty Fuzzy
buzzy screaming dreaming edgy angry consoling and soulful Nantucket
sleighride-ish piece of Art. Hard on the outside and soft on the
inside. Yearning, burning, gentle and mental, mystical music.
Halzine, Summer 2000.
Some things to think about...
A Place for Tales - beautifully written short fiction.
The enigmatic duo mesmerise and enchant with their swirling aural collages of guitars, synths and samples. Let them take you on an epic journey through the hidden doors of your mind to the very heart of genetic memory... Lots of MP3s for free download.
Jon Storm's Dictionary of computer jargon - at last, someone explains what it all means!
