IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
You may have noticed when logging in to SoundAwesome that you are getting an ‘untrusted website’ notification. This is simply because our SSL Certificate has expired and we have not yet applied a new one and the reason for that is explained below.

Please be aware that it is your browser issuing an automatic response and NOT that SoundAwesome itself has suddenly become untrustworthy.

Our high programming standards ensure that the site IS trustworthy and nothing has changed.

PAYPAL, who are our payment processors, have introduced new ‘security’ measures designed to guard against money laundering and have insisted that we re-write our financial system to fit with their new measures. However we have had similar measures in place for 7 years with no issues and in order to fit in with their new system, not only do we have to completely re-write SAMP, their measures actually do away with the protection we already afford our purchasers.

If we were to implement their new system it would make SAMP more open to abuse and remove the protection we have in place.

We are currently in talks with Paypal although we are still awaiting a response from them to information we supplied on 3rd June. We have resubmitted our response and hope that this will be responded to in very short order.

Whilst this dialogue is taking place, no orders can be placed through the site. We have explained to them that their actions are threatening the very existence of SoundAwesome as, unless we have the trickle of income from SAMP, we cannot afford to continue to pay for the servers running the site. So far they have ignored this.

This is a totally separate issue to the SSL Certificate issue and the two issues are not related in any way (I’m aware of the tautology clause there but I need everyone to be sure of that).

The SSL Certificate is not cheap (we use a wildcard certificate which secures all bandname.soundawesome addresses, not just soundawesome addresses) and unless the situation with Paypal is resolved we will have no alternative but to close down the site completely.

Please be aware that this does NOT affect KOZFEST in any way whatsoever. We will update as events unfold, or not.

IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOUT THE NEW EU VAT LAWS
As of January 1st 2015 anyone selling dowloadable digital content must collect VAT from the customer and pass it on to their VAT Office. The EU has ruled that the VAT rate is the VAT rate of the country in which the CUSTOMER resides, NOT the seller (which would have been easier). This affects SAMP and so, if you use SAMP to sell your downloads (that's 'sell', not 'give away' - obiously there is no VAT [yet] on Zero Cash Value transactions) you need to know what's happening.

SPOTLIGHT ON....

Last online over a month ago Not in the chatrooms Hungary
Computerchemist
BAND / ARTIST

computerchemist is the ongoing solo project of Dave Pearson, (born March 1964), an English musician who lives in Székesfehérvár, Hungary, after moving from the UK in 2008.Dave's love of electronic music started as a teenager when he first heard Tangerine Dream's Cloudburst Flight [1] During the early 1980s he played synthesiser in a number of rock bands, including Lichfield UK-based Monteagle with founder Mark Thwaite,[1] as well as simultaneously composing his own solo music. In 2003 he had sold all of his synthesisers and had moved over almost completely to a virtual instrument environment using Cubase SX3, only using the guitar as a "real" instrument.[1] Sinc e 2006 he has issued a number of albums on his own label "Terrainflight". Hi s music has been likened to "Berliner Schule/Berlin School style jazz-rock".[2] Bruc e Gall of ARFMs "Sunday Synth" has remarked on the crossover style of his playing,[3] invoking comparisons to electronic artists Tangerine Dream, Jean-Michel Jarre, Klaus Schulze, Kraftwerk, and the progressive sounds of Pink Floyd and David Gilmour solo work, Ash Ra Tempel, Mike Oldfield, Steve Hackett, Brian Eno and King Crimson. During April 2008,SynGate started producing re-issues of the first two albums atmospheric(2006) and icon one(2007), however the agreement was short-lived and SynGate ceased production of the SynGate re-issues in June 2009. The original terrainflight editions are still available. Guest musician Robin Hayes played cello on the third release landform(2008), the first time a guest musician had appeared on a computerchemist solo album. Uwe Cremer, otherwise known as Level Pi, was the guest musician on the fourth album, aqual measure(2009), and played guitar on the title track. A collaboration project started in July 2010 between Computerchemist and "Nemesis", ex-Hawkwind dancer and singer has produced several tracks, some of which were initially released for free under Creative Commons licensing which had been available on the computerchemist website for free download, with a full album promised at a later date entitled Chronicles of Future Present. The link as of August 2011 to this project is no longer active. The single and first track Sky Turned Black, a rework of Mirage from Aqual Measure, was however released on a charity compilation in October 2012 entitled Space Rock: The Compilation on bandcamp on the "Sound for Good" label.[4] Computerc hemist was featured through the month of August 2010 on WDIY’s Galactic Travels show with Bill Fox, as the “Special Focus”, where each album was consecutively played back-to-back each week.[5] A different approach was taken for his fifth album, Music for Earthquakes(2011), involving the conversion of seismograph readings into musical form. It was inspired by the 4.8 richter scale earthquake in Hungary in early 2011, and featured on the national Hungarian news channel Hir24[6] and Hungarian English Language news site pestiside.hu [7] shortly afterwards. His sixth double release album, and second collaboration, launched January 2013, Signatures I. and Signatures II. feature the Hungarian drummer Zsolt Galántai, formerly of the Hungarian metal band Ossian (Hungarian band).[8] A single track was specially composed for the "Sound for Good" charity release The Human Condition - Dedications to Philip K. Dick entitled The Pink Beams of Light, He Said, published in March, 2013. [9] The work-in-progress collaboration “Audio Cologne Project” with Uwe Cremer of Level Pi (and Zsolt Galántai featuring again on drums) was released in summer 2013....
