This will cover the costs of the post-production: Mixing/Mastering, physical production and video edit.
The money of the 2nd Funding goal goes into promotion, album release concert and video recording of the release concert.
1. The Album "Dimensions"
Unfamiliar/mystic sounds, produced by the unique instrument “Morfbeats Marvin” with effects, are combined with morphing-patterns on the drums and throat-singing into pulsing soundscapes. Sometimes broad and meditative, sometimes intensive and vibrating. This is not just a drum solo, it´s a musical journey through different dimensions of sound!
2. The Video
A 15 minute, 3-part suite of the album was also professionally filmed. For that, we put a lot of energy and budget into transforming the Studio A of Fattoria Musica into a “spaceship”. With the unique combination of light, laser and sound you get an exciting experience over the whole running time!
In Crowdfunding you can support me with a free amount of money and/or "buy" rewards to realise this project. You get your money back, if we don´t reach the 1st funding goal.
The goal is to gather enough money with the crowdfunding in order to pay the post-production of the Album and the video. With your support a release of the Dimensions video in March and the whole album in April is possible then! But the most important thing: You hold the CD in your hands!
Target groups are friends of experimental new sounds, drum enthousiasts, Jazz Lovers, but also friends of meditation, electronic music and throat-singing.
This project makes music possible which explores new soundscapes beyond the mainstream. There are a lot of unheard new sounds on this album, like throat-singing in combination with organic rhythms and vibrators on the drums. Nowadays, experiments like this and it´s publishing are only possible with the support of music lovers like you!
The money of the 1st funding goal goes into:
- Physical Production
- Album Design
- Video edit
These are about 1/3 of the total costs.
Included in the goal are also the costs for the crowdfunding campaign (Transaction fees, Start Next Provision, postage for rewards etc...)
If we reach the 1st funding goal, the money of the 2nd funding goal goes into:
- Promotion of the Album/Video
- Release concert party
- Video recording of the release concert
This is necessary to reach a wider audience for the album.
Of course you can´t realise such a big project by yourself, so I asked some of the best people I know, who put a lot of passion and time in this project:
- Sam Straka - video, light concept
- Steffen Lütke - sound engineer
- Marius Bieckmann - light engineer
- Till Schmitz - photos
- Thom Kuyt - visuals
Thanks also to the Artez Conservatory Arnhem for their great support.
My name is Hendrik Eichler, a young drummer/composer based in cologne. Initator and Composer of the whole project.
