Some important Monadic Information! 

We have finished mixing the remaining songs of "Body, Monad, World".  There are thirteen songs in total.  The entire album is available for purchase NOW.

Six of these songs have already been released as singles.  In the following months, we will continue to release the remaining seven songs for free on a semi-regular basis.  But if you can't wait until the remaining songs are released, you can purchase the entire album now, including artwork, liner notes, and lyrics.

In addition to the remaining as-of-now unreleased songs, included with the purchase of the album are two remixes of songs by the artist Perifery.  The two remixed songs are "I Can't Stop Buying Books" and "Are You a Zombie?"  We won't be releasing these remixed songs any time soon -- and they are really cool, so they are neat gifts for those who purchase the album.

In order to purchase the album, do the following. First, make a donation to the charity of your choice in the amount that you think is appropriate. Second, send an email to the following email address: 21stcenturymonads@gmail.com. In this email, simply tell us that you have made a charitable donation; you don’t need to tell us where if you don’t want to. We’d appreciate if you’d tell us the amount donated since we would like to know how much money has been raised in this fashion. However, we won’t require that you do this. There is no minimum amount you must donate (and obviously no maximum amount either). We are simply going to take your word that you have made a donation.

Once you have sent an email to 21stcenturymonads@gmail.com informing us that you have made a donation, your email address will be added to our address book, and you will be sent an email with a secret link to download the remaining material.

No money needs to go into our pockets even temporarily and there are no overhead costs.  We aren't trying to make money with this endeavor -- we are trying to do a little good for others.  

As mentioned, the .wav files will be 16 bit/44 khz, which is the same bit and sample rate as a CD. They’ll also be dithered to maximize sound quality. (If you don’t know what dithering is, don’t worry; basically, it’s a standard process one does when converting a 24bit file, which is the bitrate we record at, to a 16bit file; the Wikipedia article on dithering is accurate and interesting.) So the quality of the sound will be somewhat better than the free itunes/.mp3/.ogg files we’ll release.
We thank everyone who has already pre-purchased the album!
