Atheist Instrumentalist Releases Album with All Proceeds Going to Charity

Nym, a “triphop/hiphop instrumentalist,” has just released an album called “Trembling in the Stone

I was listening to several of the tracks last night and they were totally unlike anything I ever listen to — and I mean that in a good way. This track below was all sorts of awesome:


The coolest part about the album?

Nym will donate all of his earnings to charities named by Foundation Beyond Belief.

How generous is that?! So check it out and buy it if you like it. It’s all going to great causes!

    Normally, I’m more than a little skeptical of pleas to check out “atheist” music, as it often (not always!) turns out to be either mediocre music, or just not up my alley…

    But damn I love this album. Absolutely fantastic.

    This is how many “tracks” it takes to make one of those.

    Nym…The guy who used to do WoW machinima/song parodies? If this is the same guy, that is so many levels of awesome.

    Whenever I get to your page from Facebook, my computer slows down then comes to a complete halt for about 10 seconds. I think there is some external link on your page or script that is doing something to overwhelm my laptop. If you figure out what it is, I’d be relieved if you let me know.

    Much nicer than I thought it would be. I know what it takes to compose music like this and this is excellent work.

    back in my day, we called this sort of stuff ‘electronica’ and i listen to it all the time. mountainchill.com is my fav station for soft, pleasing stuff like this.

    i get annoyed with purists who say it’s not music because it’s made on computers. so? the music talent lies in the ability to make a good groove, one that speaks to the listener and fellow artist alike. i don’t like banjos, i still respect people who are good playing them. same diff.

    I’ve always maintained that music was the god we invented before we invented gods, but I still just give mine away for free.
