A collection of 10-12 songs, recorded locally. We are raising money for Mastering and Production of the CD.
The inspiration for this CD comes from a project we work on called Preserving Culture Through Music. Every year since 2005 we have traveled to other countries to teach music in areas that have no opportunity for formal music training. We teach musicians to write songs in their own culture using indigenous instruments. We also train musicians in basic theory and work to improve musicianship.
Our travels have taken us to Uganda, Rwanda, Nepal, Costa Rica, and this summer to India. We are excited about the India trip because we will be joined by musicians from Nepal with whom we worked last year. It will be a multi-cultural workshop on music, with the Nepal team bringing a clear understanding of Indian culture. Our team brings an understanding of Music theory and technique.
We are making this CD to promote our project called Mission for Music. The CD will consist of 10-12 Contemporary Worship songs using our arrangements. Some of the titles include Hosanna (Fraser), Beautiful One (Hughes), Blessed Be Your Name (Redman) and one or two songs written by our team. We are counting on the support of others to make this CD possible. We will record the tracks in-house, and use the money raised to have the CD professionally Mastered and manufactured. Thank you for your support.
To record songs that other people wrote, you must obtain what is known as a mechanical license to use the song and record it yourself. Licensing fees will cost about $300 for this CD. Having the CD professionally mastered costs $500 from a well known studio. This process takes our recording and makes the final product Studio quality. The cost of duplication and production which includes wrapping will be about $1200 including shipping.
We applied for a synchronization license from EMI which allows us to use our recording of that song in our video. This is different than the Mechanical license we will obtain to record the song on our CD.
When I give $100 to see part of the recording session, how will I know when the recording takes place?
We will send you a recording schedule. It will have dates, times, and which musicians will be in session that day. Some days will be instrumental, other days will be vocals. On a vocal recording day, we just might ask you to lend a voice on some backing tracks!
We are open to do a home performance of your creation. If you want an acoustic set of bluegrass, we will do that. If you want Jazz standards, we are more than ready. If you want to hear the tracks from the CD we will play those for you.
