I'm birthing an album based on video game styled, chiptune, 8-bit, acoustic, and orchestral styled music. Come be a part of it's birth!
Hello! If you found your way here, you must be here to show your support for me, and my music! For those of you who don't already know me, I'm Brian Ferratto, and I've created this KICKSTARTER project in an attempt to make my first album as great as it can possibly be. With the help and support of friends, family, all of my loyal fans on http://soundcloud.com/brianferratto, and the wonderful community on KICKSTARTER, I will be able to acquire the equipment I need to create this album in my image! The most important thing being a microphone for recording vocals and acoustic guitar; my lesser built-in laptop mic is in no way able to get the job done. I also need some other various pieces of equipment to produce the specially made 8-bit versions of some of the songs that I will be making, but that equipment doesn't cost too much. I have high hopes for this project, and I believe that I can reach my goal. I'd like it to go as far as it can; the more people I have backing me up on this, the better equipment I can gather. This ultimately means that my album will be better, and I can't express enough how pumped I am for this. What started out as a silly idea I had one day is unfolding into reality, and now it's up to the people I know and love, that know and love music, to hold my hand through this!
As much as I am asking, I am also giving. I am welcoming you to be a part of this experience. I am giving you the opportunity to have a huge influence on what kinds of songs I will be making as bonus tracks for my most loyal backers, and to really be a part of something important to me! You can help make this happen. You can have influence in this project. But if you just want to pre-purchase my album for $5.00, that's fine too! I honestly appreciate every last bit of help, and I hope that you guys will all appreciate my album just as much!
I've created what I believe to be great rewards. I wanted to make everyone who wants to support me and be a part of this, a part of this. Your pledges, kind words of encouragement, and grace give me momentum; the more momentum I have, the more I go. I designed these rewards because I want all of you to feel like you are actually a huge part of this, because you are! Hopefully my rewards and perks make you feel like I am rewarding you just as much as you are rewarding me! Your help will allow me to create even more music; if you support me enough, your help will even create your own songs that you have in mind for me to create. In this project, my success is a product of your generosity, support, heart, and dedication. I will mark my success based on how much this album is ultimately loved once it's finished.
So here is what I'm going to do. . .
I'm going to ask you to be an extension of my will. . .
. . . and I'm going to ask you, friend, to allow me to be an extension of yours as well.
Let's make something beautiful!

Shucks, you're great, you know that? You get a digital copy of my album, a spot in the credits, the entire collection of bonus tracks, the 8-bit versions of some of the songs on the album, and I'LL MAKE A BONUS SONG JUST FOR YOU! Just let me know what kind of song you want it to be, and if I can pull it off, I will do it. In case you want a solid list of song types I can pull of, they are as follows. Video Game Music, Chiptune, 8-bit, Acoustic, Orchestral styled. These categories are solid, but don't be afraid to request what kind of song you want it to be. Like love songs, joke songs with funny lyrics, ambient, and whether you want it to be a slower, or faster pace! The only genre this reward can't possibly offer is rap, since me creating a rap track is the $75.00 reward exclusively! These bonus songs will all be put in a bonus package of extra songs made just for this KICKSTARTER project.Estimated delivery: Dec 2012

You will get the same rewards as the previous pledge amounts. You will also be allowed to use any/all of my music for whatever it is you want it for! Whether it's some kind of film, game, video, whatever it is that you do! Don't forget to take advantage of this opportunity, since you get the $35 reward of having me make you a song of your choosing, if you are an indie game developer, or a film maker, you can have me make a song for a specific idea that you have in mind!... Oh, and I'll also tell a stranger about how great you are, you have my word!Estimated delivery: Dec 2012

If I get a single pledge for this amount... I'll make a rap song. Seriously. I'll go sick on a track and beast it with my flawless flow! You get all the rewards of the other tiers as well except for having an extra song made. This tier counts your song as only this rap song! This rap song that I'll make will even be put on the actual album! Which is special because it is the only reward that will go straight to my album instead of going in the bonus track package, so you have influence on the actual album with this reward! And next time I see you, I'll give you a nice big smooch right on the lips in honor of your grace!... unless you aren't open to that kind of thing! ;]Estimated delivery: Dec 2012

You really love me :'] Pick 5 songs that you want me to make a chiptune cover of. Please don't pick ridiculously long songs just to give me a hard time though! >=O I'll custom make the chiptune instruments from scratch just for your songs! These songs will be included in the bonus package of bonus tracks, unless you want them all for yourself! Just let me know! If I don't hear from you, I'll default to putting them in the bonus package. Once again, you obviously get all the other tier rewards, except for me making another rap song. And I'll lecture my mother for 20 minutes about how amazing and full of wonder you are! I'll even record a bunch of it on video and post it online!Estimated delivery: Dec 2012
