to hit blends percussion art music with world music and they want to record an album.
What is this for?
This is because we want to record an album. We've got a handful of compositions and arrangements that we have been playing and it is high time we've got a legit recording of them. The best thing is.... YOU GET SOMETHING OUT OF THIS. You are basically pre-ordering the album so that we can make it happen.
How will we do it?
It's all planned out. We are slated to record at our alma mater Central Michigan University in mid-July with our friend Jon Crain. The plan is to get at least 100 discs made and the disc will be available online for digital download.
Now what exactly is the money for?
If you really want to see my spread sheet email me :)
But really this will cover recording costs, making discs, graphics, licensing, making some stickers and other promotional printings, shipping costs, kickstarters cut and some room for error incase we have missed anything.
Some of you who are financially minded or have an idea how much it costs to do something like this maybe asking, "Only $800?" Well here is the thing. To hit actually has some money we made from gigs (go figure) that we can put towards this. And we would be glad to. But we would be even happier if we raised more than our goal and we could put those savings to something else....such as paying ourselves....or commissioning a composer to write something for us.
