ZiRP is our heart project and a creative outlet. Here our diverse musical ideas and preferences merge into a harmonious whole. With the 2012 debut album "Drehvolution", we have labeled our style as FUSION FOLK, since we are essentially influenced by the structures of traditional dance music, but expand them with various modern influences. In the last two years we have been working on the recordings for a new album, which shows the whole range of our music and explores new boundaries. We are very proud of the result and can hardly wait to share our music with you. Of course we put a lot of time, creativity and heart and soul into the recordings and for the first time we did the whole production by ourselves and without a label. Therefore we are now reaching our financial limits in these strange, gig-free times and ask you for your support in the financial realization of CIRCLE DIVINE.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
If you love extraordinary, handmade music, if you like to dance, if you want to support independent, ambitious musicians, if you always wanted to know how contemporary progressive folk music with hurdy gurdy can sound, or if you just ended up here with us by chance - YOU are our target group! Become a part of CIRCLE DIVINE!
Why would you support this project?
We have put all our creative energy into this ambitious album and would like to release it without a label by the end of October 2020. In order for us to reach this goal in time and in the best possible quality, we ask for your support.
In return we will reward you with unheard-of music and exclusive thank-you gifts from the world of ZiRP!
Thus the circle is complete ∞
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
We have pre-financed the whole production ourselves without a label. Due to the lockdown in the cultural industry, we have now lost important income that we had calculated with and we are reaching our private financial limits. With the collected money we want to cover the expenses for studio rent, mixing, mastering, artwork and layout of the album. With a possible surplus we could also pay for producing the physical album so that you can hold our baby in your hands.
Who are the people behind the project?
Stephan Groth - Hurdy Gurdy, Low Whistle, Piano Olaf Peters - Acoustic Guitar, Cittern Florian Manuel Fügemann - Drums, Percussion Florian Kolditz - Electric Bass, Double Bass
