Hello MIKE BURN, Dear BeSonic-Artists,
The internet platform www.besonic.com and its huge artist community, as well
as the company BeSonic AG, have had a number of turbulent years. Our vision of
being a virtual meeting point for music producers and music fans, that
generates enough money from promoting and distributing independent music,
has not been as fruitful as we thought.
Our constant endeavour to economically run and sustain this platform was not
always welcomed by you. Each step we took towards "increase of turnover"
created even "more constraint" for you. Despite the fantastic possibilities
of the internet, it has been difficult to match the typical artist's needs
(unrestrained promotion of music and exchange with like-minded musicians)
with the expectations of a rather naive audience (selects according to strict
quality standards, prefers music by well-known artists and light entertainment).
For those who have stayed on with us we want to say a BIG Thank You for your
patience and loyalty with "Your" site, BeSonic! We therefore have decided to
return the gesture and give something back. We will immediately terminate all
commercial consumer products of the site and undo all limitations that went
Over the coming months BeSonic will "return to its roots" by becoming an
all-artist/promotional platform for the independent promotion, distribution
and free exchange of music and ideas. In doing so we will also consider your
suggestions, some of which were made ages ago. We shall also hope to expand
by offering more professional music services in the future.
The reason we are able to do this true "sigh of relief" is, we've found a sponsor
who will take over and run the entire BeSonic website. And since this company
is a well-known manufacturer of music and PC equipment, BeSonic will "stay in
the family". What’s even better, generating profit from BeSonic will not be
their main incentive.
Since BeSonic and staff have to relocate, we'll be busy moving the server and the
rest to the new office over the next weeks. We'd like to ask you to be patient and
not flood our support with your questions for now, no matter how pressing. We'll
keep you posted about anything that needs to be organised to ensure for a
If any one thing's for sure:
You can look forward to a great new - good old - BeSonic!
See you very soon,
BeSonic.com - clever music. smart people.
