Entries for 20th May 2010
If you're thinking of trying out an album, now's a good time to do so! I've reduced all the downloads in my shop to a wallet-friendly £3.
The money is a small amount, but much appreciated! All the albums are available in Ogg Vorbis, and some of the newer ones are also in MP3 format. Not only that, everything's Creative Commons licensed, so you can share the music freely. So if you feel like showing some love for my stuff, please head over and pick up something!
The advances in web technology are opening up the field for artists to generate and share work in fantastic ways. One of these advances is the
audio element in HTML5.
I resisted changing things over for a while because I thought it'd be a slog re-coding the site: but as it happens I only had to remove one line to make the switch. So...
As long as you're not on Internet Explorer 7 or below, all the pages are now in XHTML5. For most purposes you won't notice any difference, except on the shop and podcast pages: if your browser doesn't understand SVG, you'll get an HTML5 audio player instead!
