What is this project all about?
A beautiful acoustic album with many facets, that we want to bring to a large audience. Our music is authentic and handmade, which is why we want only real instruments and real musicians to be heard in the recording.
Of course, all of it is original music written and arranged by us.
With the album you will get all the lyrics in a most wonderful booklet that you will want to look at time and again.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
We are going to record, design and produce a beautiful acoustic album, so we can go on tour with it.
We want to do this independent of any large company or label, and you can help make it happen. Like us, you want music that comes from the heart, produced by real people and not by a money-oriented industry. It's as simple as this: If you like our music, join the project!
This album will be the stepping stone for a life full of music: an extensive tour, new songs, a video... and when, in a few years, people will ask you: "Wow, have you heard of this new band, CousCous?", you can proudly answer: "Of course. I was there from the very beginning."
As soon as the CDs are manufactured (October 2012), we'll go on tour. We're really looking forward to this part: Bringing the music to you.
Why would you support this project?
Because these songs will bring a smile to your face everytime you play them. This music will have an impact. And it's not just our project - it's yours, too. You are with us from the very beginning of a great journey.
And let's not forget the awesome rewards to the right!
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
We will record 11 songs so beautifully, that you will never want to take your headphones off. The CD will have a wonderful cover and a great booklet with all the lyrics... and a surprise inside :)
The budget is based on a very tight calculation - but we can do a lot of things ourselves, which reduces the costs.
In some detail, this is what we need to pay for:
- recordings at a studio (the lion's share for piano recordings
- those are very expensive - but playing a MIDI-Keyboard is out of
- session musicians (we can easily do piano, guitar, kazoo and nose whistle, but we definitely need a rhythm section and strings)
- mixing and mastering
- artwork for the booklet
- manufacturing of the cds
