Seven years ago started 'Calm in Trees' as the result of the joy of discovering amazing music that was not easy to listen to. In the beginning, the posts started providing information about the project, the record and the label. A lot of music lovers were very thankful with Ana because she made us discover marvelous and interesting underground sounds even when most of the time was so difficult to reach that kind of music; not just because there were not mp3 all over the place as they are now, but also because some of those were limited editions.
Along those 7 years a lot of changes occurred. Thanks to the spread of the mp3 format and storage pages, we were able to listen consciously a record and then buying it if our pockets allowed it. Here was shared music from all over the world sometimes from far away countries like Finland or so. Also, more persons started to contribute with this blog always with the same spirit, that is to share and promote music that we love and respect, 'download to know, purchase to support'. Besides music, we also were sharing different images by different artists or photographers from all over the world for to promote their work.
We want to let you all know which is the intention of this blog in a clear manner. We don't want to affect any artist, project or label. If in past because misunderstandings or a lack of a communication we have affected or shared music that was not intended to be shared, we publicly apologize as we didn't mean to do so. The last years everyday we receive a lot of mails from artists or labels sending us their music for us to do a post to promote their music. We also publicly thank to all them for sharing -in a lot of cases even the lp, tape, cd or so- and we thank them because the blog was about that, to promote and share (as we have said so many times) and a lot of times were the artists themselves who were feeding the spirit around here.
Because what really matters is the music, besides the readers and artists that time to time give a look to this blog, we want to keep going with the blog. But we want to ask very clearly that in case you are a musician or a owner of a label and you don't want us to promote or to share a link, please let us know directly and we are willing to delete the post and link. Fortunately, internet is also changing and there are also options for artists that want to be promoted or listen to without sharing the files, as it has happened here tons of times that we just share for example the 'listen' link.
We are open, we want to learn and we want to be able to keep expressing our thoughts and ideas, but most important, we want to keep discovering music.
