June 13, 2011 - PRLog -- How much will people pay for music they enjoy? adoptahighway; a classically-trained, electronic music producer who just announced the release of his new three-song EP chances, circumstances, conditions, is about to find out.

“Feel free to take at no charge,” reads the artist’s checkout page, “But if you like what you hear, please support with whatever means possible. All contributions are thoroughly appreciated.”

The freewheeling EP includes “May Not Be Reciprocated”, as well as two other previously unreleased tracks made available in a number of high-quality, digital formats via bandcamp [] -- a popular artist network whose minimalist website affords musicians a painless way to sell music and merchandise directly to their fans.

“Brave,” one of his fans tweeted in response to the Name Your Price (NYP) model. And in an age where unauthorized file-sharing is carving chunks out of album sales industry wide, they may be right, but adoptahighway is attempting to paint a different picture with this approach.

“Music doesn't live on people's hard drives,” he replied, “It lives in people's minds. And if it takes $0, so be it.”

NYP isn’t a novel concept – everyone from Radiohead to NIN frontman Trent Reznor has given it a whirl, all with mixed results. But the internet is an ever-evolving landscape of DIY-publishing, and with 80% of today’s purchases being made online, success is often just a matter of appearing on the right page of the right search engine, at the right time.

adoptahighway’s new EP follows July 2010’s I Can’t Remember, and proves to be a stunning production of surging melodies, invigorating drums, and heartfelt emotions. All he asks for in return? “Pay what you wish. Including $0. Enjoy, share and thank you.”

Tracklist as follows:
001 - 5 Months of Thoughts in 5 Minutes
002 - Neighborhood Rhythm for Basement Apartment
003 - May Not be Reciprocated
