A Few Thoughts
Low Bit is NOT:
-A way to excuse lousy, uninspired music by saying,
"this sucks, but at least it won't take up much room on
-A means to hide poor quality music through artifacts
and data loss.
-An AUTOMATIC way to earn respect from a community of
other Low Bit artists and fans [you can do that by making
innovative, well-constructed music and being a nice gal or
-An excuse to release music you are not proud of. If
you think, "this isn't good enough to release on my 320kb/s
album, so I'll release it as Low Bit," get the fuck out!
Low Bit IS:
-An asthetic choice for an artist who enjoys the warm,
raw, and somewhat unpredictable nature of Low Bit sound.
-A challenge to a highly creative artist to produce
innovative, enjoyable music within Low Bit's limitations.
-A political stance against bandwith inequality.
-A cultural stance against technological snobbery.
-A community of geniuses, weirdos, and weird geniuses
who love to create and share their art for it's own sake.
PLEASE NOTE: This is just the opinion of one jerk-off.
