To fund the recording and limited edition vinyl release of a world premiere symphony from no wave pioneer Glenn Branca.
Glenn Branca will be performing the world premiere of his Symphony No. 15 "Running Through the World Like an Open Razor" (music for strange orchestra) at Le Poisson Rouge in New York on November 20th and 21st. This Kickstarter project is to fund the recording and release of this performance as a limited edition, numbered vinyl recording. The final product will be a double disc 180-gram numbered vinyl with custom artwork by a surprise guest artist. With Le Poisson Rouge's state of the art sound system and recording equipment we can produce an audiophile quality recording of the performance for a limited edition release. For more information on the performance or tickets to the show go here.
This performance will include 13 performers playing over 100 instruments in a 7 movement symphony that is sure to be one of Branca's most interesting pieces. We feel it's important to document such a special and unique performance and limited edition, audiophile quality vinyl seems like the appropriate fashion to record this performance.
There are a number of rewards available for helping fund this recording. All vinyl will ship 6-8 weeks after the close of the project.
