Machinae have any incomsts?
« on: September 26, 2007, 04:48:17 pm »
Okay I've thought about this pretty much acually, and I wonder:

Does Machinae Supremacy have any incomsts? Most of their music are for free etc. Of course they get some cash from live conserts (do you do this for free or?) and some cash from the shop and the one CD that atleast I could find here in Stockholm.

Why I asked this question is mainly cause I'm figure to might do the same way with my own band, you know putting up most of the songs that's been made on the net for free, and out from there get more known around the world. Exept money, that's just positive, isnt it?

Or do you get sponsored from some company? =P

You mean incomes, right? ;)

Well, I guess they make a small profit from selling their albums, especially RRE, and they might be sponsored by their record label (afaik, Spinefarm sponsors at least some of their gigs/tours).

It's just a guess, though.

Well, making video game music isn't what I'd call an ordinary job.

Edit: Oh right, they make other kinds of music and sound jobs as well, but video game music sounds cooler.

They probably have someone at Spinefarm doing all the accounting at the record deal side of things. But they still have to earn enough to live (and run Hubnester, don't forget) and they'll need to do their own accounting for that.

OMG, just had a somewhat related offtopic idea.

Is moderating a fan forum and the related expenses (internet access, spreadsheet software, Aspirin, ...) deductible from income tax?

oh yes, clearly that requires talent which, let's be serious, the band lacks in all areas.

and a bit on-topic.
