Skypiper is a band from Omaha, NE. NOW in the studio tracking their 2nd full length album - and they have something special brewing...
Skypiper is a band from Omaha, NE. Currently, they are in the studio tracking their second full-length album. This will be the third release by Skypiper.
This album will feature 14 new songs, and something EXTRA special for the buyer. --- A professionally bound, FULL COLOR 5.5"Tx8.5"L book that they like to call, "The Skypiper Museum of Arts". The book will feature all original artwork for the album in high definition, vibrant print- as well as lyrics, credits, and thanks. Skypiper has managed to save enough money for the production of this album, but sadly, can not afford pay for the rest of mixing, mastering, and duplication. Estimated costs for all of this will be about $2,000.00
Here's the deal. When thinking about how to package this album, they decided that they wanted to deliver something original to their listeners. Everyone knows that jewel cases end up under car seats, broken, or on a shelf somewhere~ camouflaged in a deep abyss of other albums (you know it's true). So, with this in mind, they decided to go a different route. First came the realization that Skypiper is honored enough to be friends with some truly amazing artists. Not only that, but incredible artists from all over America and Europe, too! They quickly schemed up an idea on how to utilize these wonderful friendships and also make it even more interesting for everyone.
And this is what they came up with:
Skypiper will assign one song from the new album to one of the artists. Their assignment? Simply to illustrate that song. Here's where it gets interesting. Each artist is very stylistically unique and gifted. Skypiper is giving them FULL ARTISTIC FREEDOM to illustrate the song however they choose. Not only that, but they may use whatever medium(s) they would like, as well as much or as little of the canvas as they like. It gets better. They are not permitted to show anyone these art pieces except for the band- Especially the other artists Skypiper is working with. The reason for this is because although Skypiper has complete faith in all of the artists originality, they also understand that influence comes from everywhere, and they want their artists to be completely uninfluenced by any other art piece featured in this book. Once each artist has completed their work, it will be submitted to the band, and once all commissioned pieces are collected- they will be formatted for the book and sent to the printers. Once the books are received by Skypiper, they will include the CD/Download Card to the book and it will be ready for sale!
