Sensuous Enemy 2012 Promo ShootSince you last heard from us in August, we’ve been working on a few new songs this fall that we’re excited to showcase for you on October 20th. We’ll be performing at Club Inferno in Madison, Wisconsin for the 3rd Annual Cyber Perversion. The first song we previously performed at our last show titled Red Ropes, was inspired by a beautiful woman who thoroughly enjoys sensory rope play. The second song is Freedom from Religion, which we think will be a new favorite. We’ll be performing this one in a different style that imitates or mimics speak-say or rap using a female computer voice setting. Finally the third song is Sirens of the Sea we’re attempting to finalize this week.

Aside from working full time, I’m also attending Madison College trying to finish up my A.S. in Marketing. In one of my classes this semester I’m working as an Intern for the Literacy Network of Dane County, Madison. This will really help me gain experience working for a business doing Marketing with an emphasis on Social Media. Needless to say, it’s been a rough month, but we’re still able to squeeze in a couple of rehearsals each week to make sure we’re staying on top of things and to prepare for our next show on in October.

Right now we have about half the songs we need for our next CD “Voyager”, and although we wanted to get it done by the end of the year, it looks like it’s going to be more like Spring of 2013 if all goes well. So keep listening and tuning in each week as we talk about the process of creating these songs and what inspires us.

Cynergy 67, Sensuous Enemy, The Jimmy Coffin (Sideshow) InfusionWe have a great show for you on Wednesday, July 11th at The Frequency, 121 W. Main St. downtown Madison!

Hey all our band friends, we found this course on our reverbnation twitter feed today by Cheryl B. Engelhardt, who just released a course titled  In The Key Of Success: The 5 Week Jump- Start Strategy,”  Its an eCourse about licensing success in seven easy steps, and she’s got some pretty cool music too!

Because Sensuous Enemy is a Reverb Nation artist, we get a ridiculous 70% discount off the normal selling price by typing in REVERBN8TION when we go to her site here: http://www.cbemusic.com/ecourse.  If you’re on ReverbNation and interested, it looks like it might be worth a couple of hours to check it out…or not, if you already know this stuff.

Since SOPA and PIPA have come to light over the past month, it would interesting to find out what all our friends fans think about the Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Act

Huffington Post put out a good article on January 19th, 2012 titled “What is SOPA? Anti-Piracy Bill explained” that thoroughly explains what SOPA is and how it could be abused heavily. “The legislation would allow copyright holders and the Justice Department to seek court orders against websites associated with copyright infringement. SOPA, the House version, applies to both domestic and foreign websites, while PIPA targets foreign websites. If that court order is granted, the entire website would be taken down. Internet users who typed in the site’s URL address would receive an error message, and for all appearances, the site would never have existed. Importantly, the court does not need to hear a defense from the actual website before issuing its ruling. The entire website can be condemned without a trial or even a traditional court hearing.”

So, basically, if we as a band use a snipet of any copyrighted material, including sound bites from movies, the maker of those movies could obtain a court order to shut down our entire site, force credit card companies to stop processing payments to our site, make google remove it from search results, and force 1and1.com from hosting it on the web!  Then, it would take a court order to get it back up and running. SOPA makes it a felony to stream copyrighted video without permission, punishable by prison time

For a well established band, even if they have legal permissions, a mere accusation without evidence could happen, resulting in the loss of millions of dollars and most likely a musician’s entire life.

John's Torture Rack

We’re currently working on a few new songs for release in 2012.  It’s been awhile since we’ve produced a new one, so it’s time to get this SE train moving forward!

Now that a few of us will be off school and work for a couple of weeks over the winter break, we’ll have more time to continue the creative process.
Right now, we’re anxiously awaiting the release of Electronic Saviors II so you can hear a song we wrote and recorded for our friend Jim Semonik .

We’ll get this blog thing down sooner or later, so stay tuned for more from Sensuous Enemy!
