What is Ozark Soundscape?
Ozark Soundscape is all of reality as we know it.

How did Ozark Soundscape come to be?
Andrew Robbins started recording music when he was nine and released his first album three years later. Since then he's released dozens of albums of varying quality on his own bandcamp page, You Are Already Dead Records, and I Thought You Were A Marxist Records, including collaborations with several people, including Drew Smith, Adrian Barry, and Tanner Boyle.

Where should I start with Ozark Soundscape?
There are a three releases that I would recommend starting out with. Another Songs is Ozark Soundscape's most recent outing, featuring forty minutes of music in Ozark Soundscape's signature experimental, yet simple and fun style, but more streamlined than ever, featuring a mix of folksier, guitar driven tracks, some noisy rock songs, and some experimental tracks. In The Sky, I Can See It is essentially the same but in a more condensed form. Things That Shouldn't Talk But Do is a bit uneven in comparison, but features some of Ozark Soundscape's greatest tracks. The album is essentially the same stylistically as the aforementioned two, but with a more psychedelic edge and lower quality production. After listening to those three, I think you'll have a good idea of what Ozark Soundscape is about.

Well, I worked really hard on it. I'm sorry you can't appreciate my music, but I couldn't care less of what you think.

I didn't listen to the entire thing, but so far it's good! I wouldn't regard it as a 'joke', I always liked the avant-garde soundscape type stuff. So good job! Big smile

Alright i take back what i said, i only listened to one randomly picked song, wich was "Sing". I enjoyed "that quiet marching" and "take that lampshade off yo head". i'm really sorry for my narrow mindedness.

I mean, seriously. how would you feel if you put your emotions, ideas, effort and time into something you were really proud of, showed it to someone, and they said that to you?

I think it's only a question of opinion. It is sure I would be shocked by such criticism. But, frankly speaking, how much time and effort have you put into it? There's a lot of improvisation in there. And a lot of concept writing like polyrythmic pieces. I don't think it took days to write, rehearse, record and produce. I mean, it's not like if you tought of how to bring your modulations or such stuff. Or it's not like if you took days to record sounds, find their notes and put it in a electroacoustic piece.

These were all made over 4 months, but I would estimate that it took me, in total, about 5 hours in total to write, rehearse, record, and mix all of these. It may not seem like a very long time, but some of these songs I really slaved over. Some of them took take after take, edit after edit, and some caused a great deal of stress. But more importantly, that harsh comment really hit me. This is what I want to do with my life. This is my passion and my way of self-expression. My music is almost everything to me.

My point is, if you don't have anything that isn't a blatantly harsh attack, don't say it. A little criticism is okay, but nothing mean.

If I was you, I'd not put so much emphasize on a hobby and if you really live for music, than you'll need to work to get to the tops. I see you like more avant-garde/modern music but it isn't music out of nowhere, it's also based on rules and I think you should learn your basics at first. You would probably appreciate it even more if you put your mind to it. So, I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings but I still find it really not good.
 
And by the way, The Jester is another guy on Progarchives (he came after me I didn't know I could seperate words) my username is realy The_Jester.

There is no average amount of time to write, rehearse and produce a song, it all varies.
