CounterClockwise is a group of after-school kids who have learned how to write and create their own Music.
Help me make these kids sound like the SUPERSTARS that they already are!
The Pinnacle kids have made a few songs... now it's time to make a full EP. Now they've come up with a name - (drum roll pleeease) CounterClockwise???
Funny story. So I tell the class to come up with a name for their group and after 55 minutes of bickering in an hour long class I say, "You guys are makin the clock go backwards". With five minutes left they all agreed. They justified it with the music being sooo good that time stops and you have to go back to listen to it again.
Here is a snippet of their school song that they created which went on to become the "Pinnacle School Anthem".
Now we've come to part of yearning for more and I plan to keep my promise of recording a full project. I talk constantly about taking advantage of this program because I had nothing like it growing up in school. Just the same ol' reused trumpet from the last 3 decades in music class. (Sorry Ms. Wilson...still love you)
Utilizing today's most sophisticated music software, music compositions are being structured soley by my class. I only instruct and observe. They write their own lyrics and produce their own tracks. One girl came to me and said, "Mr. Hooks I can't sing, rap or make music". Three weeks later and I can't get her to be quiet. But I love it! I love watching their creative minds at work and birthing an idea and shaping and molding that idea into the art we call music.
This EP will contain 7-8 songs and we will be giving away free copies to friends, family and the people in our community. We will shoot a professional music video for one of the songs and post it on Youtube.
We're excited and we hope it translates through the KickStarter community!
