Welcome to the new version of my lil’ site. I felt it was time to take it up a notch from manually written HTML + 5 minutes of CSS.
A new minimalist design, and now it’s actually possible to comment on posts. Feels like 1998 all over again!
Plan is to post a bit more, share some code, music and ideas to the world. We’ll see how that works out. Cheers!
PS: aringtoneaday.com – that was fun. 228 ringtones, more than two million downloads and tens of thousands unique listeners – crazy! Taking a break with it, not sure if I’ll pick it up again.

Wow! I didn’t expect that I would manage to keep up with making a ringtone every day, and I did not expect that it would quickly get so popular! One month of ringtones later, and I got 1250+ subscribers. That’s a bigger audience than I ever had in all my years of gigging with Endymaeria.
Interestingly, I got almost no visits to the aringtoneaday.com website, and although it is slowly picking up the pace (60 daily visitors now), it seems that almost everyone directly subscribes from the iTunes Store. In fact, today A Ringtone A Day climbed to top 4 podcast in NL!
I’m very happy to see it is so popular and I’m also happy that I brought a bit of music-making back in my life, even though I’m crazily busy with work these days. Cheers everybody!

Since I am not making enough music I came up with a little fun project to force me. Mostly I don’t have the time to sit down for a few hours and finish the basics of a song. Combine that with being really bad at finishing something when out of the original flow of creation and the result is that I produce almost nothing anymore.
So, from today, every day, I’ll post a home-made iPhone ringtone to a special mini-site: A Ringtone A Day. The first three have been made! It doesn’t take much time to make one, so my aim is that this way I’ll incorporate some musical creation back in my life, even if it’s just a little bit.
