You enrich others but hardly earn enough

You play for others (and enrich others too).
I won't mention the total sums, only percentages, but i'll
say that a musician earning the average sum per gig, needs at least 6 gigs monthly to pay bills. And that's pretty unlikely
here in southern Spain. Tour costs:
- Gas and meal expenses: 10% of your gig earnings (more
if you play further or more days on a row: add and
additional 10% costs for every 100 kms. driven).
- Hostel: 30% - 40% of your earnings per gig (in case you
haven't a place to crash in. That happens to me half of the
gigs).
You sweat, drive, load in and out, practice for months before
the shows, learn for years, expend good sums on buying and repair gear, do booking, do promotion and of course!
PLAY THE FUCKIN' SHOWS.
Maybe just to enrich and fatten others up...

Lugar placentero

Escucha:
https://product0.bandcamp.com/album/locus-amoenus

Sigo con mis "re-masters". En 2012 grabé y produje varios "albums". Por promoción y por ganas de hacer música. Casi todos con vena experimental. Como este Locus amoenus. Para explicar a qué suena y con qué idea se hizo, copio y pego el texto que acompaña la descarga de Bandcamp:

"Locus amoenus recorded in three days (as an experiment) in april 2012.
Cool ambient and weather!
Cover by a horny blog, but i can't remember the name, sorry.
Got something to do with hell and hot chicks..."

Y añado: la intención era ver que salía según "el método" de Aluk Todolo...ahí lo dejo.
