What’s it all about?
Creating and maintaining a website can be a ‘pain in the ass‘. Lack of time is one reason besides other circumstances. After several experiences with creating and maintaining webpages for my own purpose, I started making pages for others, mainly musicians and artists I met during my work on Metropolis, a blog and on-line store for so called ‘unheard’ music which still continues and features as well the poetry genre.
Page by page
The first page I did, as a sort of a Metropolis spin-off was BELLS, Henry Kuntz’s famous music newsletter from the seventies which appeared after 35 years for the first time on the web. It was just a matter of time to create a Henry Kuntz personal web page which is already online. Another musician’s page was created for Michael Pierre Vlatkovich and Paul Hubweber‘s and at the same time Ben Lindgren‘s page went online.
Poetry Dispatch is another example, a daily e-mail newsletter by writer Norbert Blei who started beginning 2005 and has now it’s own page. A few other projects are in the pipe-line and I discussed with Ravan – who was and is always a great help concerning technical matters – to create a design and hosting platform for Metropolis related genres and he is the ‘tech-master’ in this project.
We are using WordPress for page installations and a WordPress-based multi-installation software called WorpressMU. All what we offer is based on this open-source software and what the world-wide-wordpress community creates every day. You will always be having the latest technical features and updates on your page.
Your personal/professional web pages
For music related pages we created free-jazz.net and for the poetry part the domain outlaw-poetry.com; even though both genres have a lot in common. If you want to have your own web presentation created by us, you can choose between:
- yourdomainname.free-jazz.net or
- yourdomainname.outlawpoetry.com or
- yourdomainname.com (or .net, .org, .info, .yourcountrycode — just ask)
Please keep in mind, we are not intending to create another copy of a copy of a copy of existing design and hosting platforms for John Doe’s, Monsieur Dupont’s, Hans Franz and Lieschen Meier. Please check out our existing pages and you will find out where we are coming from and where you will be heading with us.
If you have a web project in mind, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will come back to you to discuss your project with you in detail and the price we would have in mind for your wishes.
