New Cover Art and QR Codes idea

« Last Edit: May 11, 2022, 23:08:14 by MrBouzouki »
I've been busy with stuff of late but I finally found time today to design a bit of cover art today for my upcoming orchestral 4 track EP 'The Wheel Turns' that should hopefully be up on Spotify et al in the fullness of time.  I decided to go down the Repost by SoundCloud route as a way of getting some official releases our finally. I did sign up to PPL in the UK (it's free) to get my own ISRC registrant code.

I've been musing if it would be possible to use a QR code to access online sleeve notes as part of the design. The trouble with digital distribution is you miss out on all that stuff.

If you use somebody like QR-creator you can create one and it does appear to work to take you to a hosted webpage. For things like Bandcamp you could put it on the cover art itself I guess but I wondered about putting up some graphics on my Spotify feed as a way of linking to some hosted sleeve notes.

If only I could help you. Really, you’re hundreds and hundreds of yards ahead of me.
Does wishing you luck help any? And the promise to buy one once you hit (#1 hit) the market?
If so, I’ll do both.
Kind regards, Gus
