    Nice music. I am new at web design, so be careful with my comments.
    I do like the font of the title, the simplicity of the website and the color scheme. What I would recommend to work on its the visibility and functionality of the website. I do like the video with the music, but I do not like the video behind text or elements that I try to concentrate on. Maybe if you did the middle less transparent it would be easier to concentrate on the playlist name and icons? Talking about the icons there are a little too grey out, and almost lost, you should consider making them making them dark, because you DO want people to see them and click on them.

    Minor: In the menu the elements/links that are no selected, have you tried making them grey with alpha like the middle? I think this could be interesting and give you more consistency.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. I'll play the fonts again.

    Even though video sliders are getting more popular now, my personal opinion is I think a slider with the Kens Burn effect would enhance your beautiful music much better than a video slider.

    We're also going to purchase your cd after we get though with this usual wild 1st of the month run in the office.

    We used this on some of our musicians websites. It can give you some ideas. All the musicians have told us their reviews are nothing but excellent and we've been able to see their site traffic increase two fold because of it.

    We use just a full page single image and use this to showcase their music on the home page.

    Work on the design to be responsive. The music is very relaxing. You just need a little bit work on the design coz it's not looking good on smartphones and tablets.

    While I also think the music is just lovely, I really would advise you not to have it autoplay when th site opens. I cannot stress it enough - it is NOT best practice. Here are a few reasons why:
    1. If the user has a slow connection (or busy connection) then the audio can freeze - no time to cache it prior to playing.
    2. If user opens up multiple tabs/windows from search results, then they all start playing together instead of only active tab/window.
    3. If the audio isn't expected, then sudden playback of sound is very annoying.
    4. On mobile devices, it uses expensive bandwidth
    5. It adversely affects accessibility. Accessibility is one of many criteria google includes in it's algorithms.

    W3C explains how it affects accessibility "Playing audio automatically when landing on a page may affect a screen reader user’s ability to find the mechanism to stop it because they navigate by listening and automatically started sounds might interfere with that navigation. Therefore, we discourage the practice of automatically starting sounds (especially if they last more than 3 seconds), and encourage that the sound be started by an action initiated by the user after they reach the page, rather than requiring that the sound be stopped by an action of the user after they land on the page.

    And it's just plain more polite to allow the visitor to choose if they want to hear anything
