as some of you may know, i've been working towards releasing a record of the guitar and voice songs/music of american microtonal composer harry partch for some time now - perhaps you've even see me play some of the music in concert!
since consolidating what material will be presented on this record, and how i'd like it to be presented, i've been very keen to release it on vinyl [which will include a 12-page colour booklet, as well as a digital download of the album, bonus music exclusive to the vinyl release and other digital visual material].
pressing vinyl is an expensive business, especially if you want to produce something visually multi-faceted, and so i'm once more dipping my toe into the world of crowdfunding via the website pozible. the campaign details are here:
i was lucky enough to produce my last solo album on vinyl, due to the generosity of a number of people back at the beginning of 2014. Over the next 56 days i will attempt to raise the AUD$4600 [GBP£2600] needed to produce a limited edition run of 250 copies of the record.
these are tough economic times. this i know. even the smallest contribution will be greatly appreciated and will help towards making this record a reality. if you do decide to pledge towards my campaign, you will receive various rewards depending on your generosity. in its simplest form, this is essentially a way to pre-order the album.
when pledging, you can either sign in with your facebook account, or with your email address. There is also an option for your donation to be anonymous. your pledge amount will not be deducted unless i reach or exceed the target.
i would also very much appreciate if you could extend your support by sharing this link with anyone who may be interested, even if you're not.
if you have any questions regarding this system, i'll be happy to answer them. if for some reason you're reluctant to donate money through the pozible website, i could in theory accept payments as a pre-order directly via paypal.
