Dot Dot Dot is a string trio (two violins and a double bass) based in Tübingen, Germany. The musical style lies somewhere between folk, jazz and classical music. The self-composed pieces cover a wide range of moods and mix various styles and musical ideas in a very personal, playful, and unconventional way. This first album will feature 10 original compositions.
We are three musicians, who not only share a great passion for making music but who also live together in a tiny flat. One could say that we are a "family project". Our music is as diverse as we are and reflects the music that we play and listen to: international traditional folk, jazz, classical music as well as popular music.
This summer we are going on a tour of Europe. We want to play our music on the streets of villages and cities along the way. We will travel from Tübingen via Prague, Vienna, Ljubljana, Venice and Marseille to Barcelona and then back to Tübingen. For this tour we would like to record our debut album "Falling Up".
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
We would like to release our album before the start of our European tour. With our music, we want to reach people like you, who enjoy unconventional bands and want to support original music away from the mainstream.
Why would you support this project?
Recording and producing a CD is expensive. We calculated that we would have to play on the street 30 times by the start of the summer and earn 100 euros each time in order to cover the production costs. This would be quite a marathon and unfortunately it's a bit unrealistic. But with your help the production costs would be covered. :-)
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
The money we raise would be spent on the following:
Sound recording Mixing and mastering Production of the physical CD Cost for CD cover and booklet
If our funding goal is not reached in the specified time, you will not be charged. The money you give goes to a trust account and you will be refunded via startnext.com
