You helped me ! Your donations allowed me to buy a new hardware to finish the last Arkyne's album. Until today I was working with a Sure SM58 to record my voice and instruments... but the sound wasn't clean, sometime too low, because SM58 is made for singers on scene. I needed to have a real studio mic (with reasonable price). This Prodige ST1 Lanen mic is just made for this. Now I'm able to add more sounds (ukulele, cajon, djumbe...) without to have to "level up and clean" them.
I want to thanks the community that listen, share and makes donation for free artists. 
Time spents, new album is coming  :)

Watching Video that +Frederic Bezies made to speak about flash plugin and bandcamp... he has shown my bandcamp page and said (translated) "I will not play songs because of copyright"... surprised, I verified on my bandcamp page and "ho my god" !!!  I let "All right reserved" for tracks instead of "CC BY SA" (creative commons). I've just fixed this, all my apologies and Thanks to +Frederic Bezies to point the problem.

We've got some big problems with website, our name was badly deleted from our registar. So, if you've got problems to visit the website, please wait 1 day or 2.
And thanks to follow us, it's a promise, new album is coming soon.

A new preview of next album songs - that's not mastered, no correction, not finalized at this time. Hope you'll like anyway

Ok... I just discovered that sharing in a community doesn't send the post into our page... So excuse me for multiple share if it's the case.
A new preview of song that will be on next album. It's not finallized, not mastered... so don't be afraid ;) 

Selean means "childhood" in Arkyne lang.

And voilà ! Akyne has now a bandcamp page to sell album for 3€ (3$ it seems). Thanks to +Frederic Bezies who gave me the link... strangly I didn't know bandcamp site... So, one more time, musics we make are and will be under Creative Commons. If you buy albums, it's a donation to help us to continue the project: have vynils, work in studio (for mastering), and so on.

BTW: Arkyne uses #lmms   #ardour    #linux   ( #fedora ) and I give a big thanks to #bandcamp  !

The album "Ayen Bowen No" you know for quite some time is now available on Google playstore. You will certainly notice that it pays ... and ask yourself "free music? pay? but why?"

Yes, Arkyne Albums are and will remain under "Creative Commons" license. Nothing will change. The passion for music freely shared, and the philosophy that I defended for years are still intact. 

But regarding the Google platform, or any other pay platform, albums will be available for a few cents. The reason is simple. Create an album, buy equipment, try to press a disc (vinyl soon), website management, all require financial resources. "Google play" version is somehow version for "donation". Buy album on this type of platform rather than download it on Soundcloud helps Arkyne to finish the next album faster, and offer you other materials, a video clip,... short: you'll make a donation. With a little luck, these gifts will allow me to finish the next album in studio, rather than do it in my small room under my passion.

Arkyne is not a professional group. I'm currently only writing, playing, singing, mastering, and everything has been funded by my own. If you like the music I offer, I will be very grateful to help me continue.

BTW: 2 songs are freely available on album for Google Play

For french reader.

Si vous êtes sur Lyon ce samedi 17, lors des JDLL, je vous présenterai comment créer de la musique sur GNU/Linux. Ce sera l'occasion de voir avec quoi les albums du projet #Arkyne  sont créés.

After some times to compose new tracks, I decided to work on new website.
I wanted to make a animated website, with some clouds, a tree... So... This is online now. You can visit it at http://arkyne.net

This is the very first version. I will add some other animations, some pages...

Clearly, I do not measure up to the sites created by teams of Google, as ro.me. But with the little time I have, and the means at hand... for now it's not so bad. 

For those who like web development:
know that the site is fully realized according to the standard HTML 5. Video of the tree is made with #Blender  and clouds are made in gimp. Animation for clouds are made with keyframes.
