A CD with my own musical compositions put out into the world.... that has always been a great wish of mine, and now I am very close. Our music as a quintet is more than the combination of each of our strengths. We inspire each other and create together a unique musical style.
"Moving" This will be the name of our first album. The First Klaas Quintett has been making music in this constellation of musicians for over four years, however many ideas for the songs began even earlier. Our music is a meeting place for five musicians who mutually inspire each other and share each other's strengths and weaknesses. This is not the kind of music where each note is preconceived or composed. The First Klaas Quintett lives from its spontaneity and improvisation. All songs were played as a quintet in the recording studio.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
Our goal is to bring our music to as many people as possible and to share with them the fun we have by making it. The First Klaas Quintett already has a small fan base, but we are sure our music could be appreciated by many more.
Why would you support this project?
The music of the First Klaas Quintett is far from mainstream. The songs that we recently recorded are the culmination of years of work, work that wasn't always easy. These songs are played from the heart and have contributed to unforgettable moments for ourselves and our fans. A good reason to bring our music and our band into the recording studio and finally be able to answer the question of "is there a First Klaas Quintett CD?" with "yes!" .
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
The money collected through Startnext will be used exclusively for the production of the CD: - recording studio costs -mastering and mixing -album artwork -CD pressing
