Field Recording Download

At 3 am this morning I finished the recording of the new NaDa BaBa CD. In my opinion it is a gem. I have learnt so much in the last two years since Yidaki Mind Tree in regards to CuBase and basic recording techniques (microphones are fascinating!).
The new CD is titled Ambient Time Arm and will be first available on Music Your Mind Will Love You next week (I still am struggling with an innovative cover design: L-shape gate fold with brilliant images by Erika). After a while I will post a free download at the Internet Archive and continue to sell the hand made covers etc. myself.
One thing I want to try to do is include a HTML file on the CD which directs a web browsers to this page when the CD is played or loaded into a online computer. It is the website of a recording I made at a Durga Temple near Nagwa Ghat in Varanasi India in August 1996. A group of about 30 devotees sing the Rama Sita Bhajan accompanied by a dholak for about 40 minutes. I wanted to put it on the CD but there was no room (it runs at 63 minutes now) so it becomes a free download instead.
I will have to wait until work resumes next month and I can ask Samuel (resident code wizard at HUMlab) about creating/finding a program which does such a thing.
