What is this project all about?
Although this intensive music is no mainstream, Joker’s Paradise wants to reach many listeners. J.P. sees itself as a kind of opposite pole to “industrial mass production of music”. For this purpose it takes courage to go new musical ways without going to the other extreme of writing music too top-heavy. By the way, sound samples of the album you can find on http://jokersparadise.de/farewells/
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
Target group primarily are listeners, who search for music with emotional depth and fascinating richness of detail. But fans of rockmusic, who search for a modern entry in classical music and lovers of classical music, who search for modernity are invited listeners, too! The album can be buyed from November 2016 in all popular internet stores or can be ordered in regular CD-shops, too, this enables the distributor Timezone. Also download-stores and streaming services sell “Farewells”. Clearly defined target is to get the financial ability to present our new album, introduce it to the target group.
Why would you support this project?
Really good and exciting things in the world of music only can happen in our days, if you are independent from the “big bosses” of the music industry. Producing art in high quality level out of the way of mainstream requires a lot of passion by the participants. The production of the CD was managed by the artists, but for things like promotion they need financial help now.
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
After successfull financing some actions in promotion can be
started (e.g. advertisements in print media, internet advertising,
acquisitions of editors at broadcasting and TV)
By reaching the funding target the basics would be possible. By reaching more, the promotion actions would become bigger of course.
Who are the people behind the project?
The composer and violin player Georg Pfundtner together with the
female musical singer Katrin Mayer (known from many stage
productions) resurrected Joker’s Paradise. In the year 2015 the
debut album (entitled “Dreamworld”) of this line-up has been
released. On “Dreamworld” the compositions existed before Georg
met Katrin, but on “Farewells” the titles were exactly written
for the voice of her! Bringing this studio project live on stage is
not planned at this time, but by rising demand this will surely be
a long-term goal. More informations you can get on
