Today I am tickled pink to launch the brand new Severed Fifth website, hereby beginning the second phase of the project.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Severed Fifth, it was a project I set up to see how far an unknown musician (me) could take his music when releasing it under a Free Culture license; a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license. To do this I wrote the debut Severed Fifth album ‘Denied By Reign‘; writing and performing all the instruments and recording it in my home studio. Just as the album was released, I entered one of the busiest times in my life – I was moving countries, getting married, work was hectic, and had just signed up to write The Art Of Community for O’Reilly. As such, time ran out and I didn’t have the mental bandwidth required to commit to Severed Fifth.
This changed about four months ago when I started working on the follow up album. As I edge towards the completion of the writing phase, I figured it was time to get the web presence and community kickstarted. Today I am proud to share the fruits of this work.
In addition to this I have set up a brand new Severed fifth forum. This will be the hub of the new Severed Fifth community, and I hope it will bring together fans of the music, Free Culture enthusiasts and community members who are keen to get involved with the Street Team. I will be blogging about the Street Team later this week.
Finally, I have also set up a Severed Fifth Twitter Account. It is a great place to keep up to date with the project and find out the latest about the new album.
