What is this project all about?
My name is Sergey Dunaev. I'm a singer/songwriter and guitarist from Weimar (Germany). I've been composing music since the age of thirteen – songs and instrumental music.
By now there are over 100 Songs that were written by myself and
I'm still working on new ones. The composing is mysterious
process.– some tunes, the best ones, come literally from
'nowhere', always spontaniously, without intellectual effort. This
type of music, without non-essential glamour, unsophisticated,
direkt from heart I always wanted to make. If you saw an old
Zen-art you will understand what I'm trying to say – that great
simplessness that immediately unifies your heart with heart of an
Many artists compromise their music in order to sell, using it just as a tool for commercial success. In this case, no matter how successful their music is, it is not genuine anymore. Like birthday congratulations - you hope them to be heartfelt and candid, otherwise they are worthless. What's about music? - is it a different thing?
I chose about 11 songs for my first album and I'd like them to be 'as they are' – unfashioned, true, direct from heart. An artist, from my point of view should be a servant of music, transmitter - nothing more, nothing less. Putting ego behind the curtains and art at forefront has tremendous effect on artist and hearer – while playing or hearing these kind of songs you merge with them, which means no borderline between you and them, subject and object - isn't it a wonderful power of MUSIC?
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
Target audience is everyone who loves direct, unfashioned and honest music. The goal is to make a straightforward, spiritual album!
Why would you support this project?
The studio production is very expensive. Good, professional recording studio costs about 2000 € per day. In order to be able to finance the recording process the artist has to be commercially successful, to be commercially successful most of the artists have to compromise, fashion their music into market.
This is not my way, that's why I need your help! Remember, there is always an alternative!
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
In case of successful financing all the money will be used on the album (production, studio rent/ studio musician, artwork, manufacturing and promotion).
