Yes they are !
OK, I've found how to access. Thanks for this important work, Chris.
As you mention, some pieces seem to have an unexpected success (something I have long noticed). Also, I find that during december there were about 600,000 downloads, but only 221 downloaders, which makes about 3,000 downloads per downloader ! According to my calculation, if I count 4 minutes as a mean per recording, each one must spend 8x24h00 days to listen those 3,000 tunes... Hence there are only 11 downloaders who downloads more than 100 tunes. As you wrote, there seems to be some robots who are pumping continuously the site. The most efficient one (184.108.40.206) downloaded 121,598 tunes, while there are only about 5,000 recordings. When you love, you don't count
Well, finally we have to keep modest about the disemination of the site
. How many real downloaders, that are people who brose the site, choose some tunes, donwload and listen them ? Apparently less than 200, so more or less as many as people registered as 'artists'. This is in line with the public we find in classical music concerts (at least in Europe): elderly people and younger people, most of them being musicians...
But this does not decrease the value of this site and the people who maintain and feed it ! Viva la musica !
