I spend a lot of time writing music and recording it on the computer. Recording under the name D in Conduct, a series of projects are combined to make a CD album with labels and box art. I only burn a couple of copies and just put them away. I don't try and sell them. I don't send them off to record companies. I just have a couple to give away in the unlikely event that somebody knows I write music and, even more unlikely, actually wants one. I take the working files off the computer when they are done and resolve not to touch them again.
But after a year or two I feel that I have learned more about mixing and mastering, so I create new project files from the archived audio and work with them some more. However, I don't usually create any new audio. I work with what was made originally, just for the challenge of it, not that anybody would know... or care.
I use Cakewalk Sonar for my digital audio workstation and I found that loading older project files into a newer version of Sonar often causes trouble, so the removal process consists of exporting all the actual audio takes I used and archiving them.
Since I never learned the correct way to pronounce "genre", my songs don't fit into one. They tend to cover several different styles.

From my album "Stick 'em With a Fork".
This is among a couple of music videos I have put together using photos and video footage I have snatched from the internet to go with a couple of my songs. I have no ownership of anything but the music.
