- just remove the old music, or
- create a new bandcamp each style I make (idm/glitch, techno, ambient, more acoustic/jazz/etc), or
- don't worry about having both silly holiday pastiche albums next to avant garde electronic experiments
- something else?
@cb Not a maker myself, but as consumer, all on the same bandcamp account would be my preference. There are multiple styles I like, so if an artist makes good music in one, I am quite interested in what else they make. Regardless of style.
> the situation if somebody wants to play a mix of "Chris Beckstrom" music and there is a goofy pastiche of "Jingle Bells" followed by an ultra-serious experimental electronic piece.
How people find what they look for with search queries will ultimately come down to the metadata and the accompanying content. Regardless of platform.
anecdotally, it's quite rare that someone looks for me with search queries. Instead it tends to be some sort of recommendation. So it's still worth curating a path on your personal Internets. Hinting about the divergences and keeping a thread going is no easy task. But it can be fun. Especially for people who have internet domain estate, such as us: Owning a domain name allows for a lot of expression :)
@cb Definitely not "remove" - and personally, I like strange avant-garde combinations and discoveries. My released music only goes back to 2015, but does show some progression (I didn't really know anything about mixing/mastering when I started) and explicitly spans styles.
But I recognize that "regular" music consumption depends on consistency, so if you're aiming at that, separate artist/account per style makes sense.
