Great news. After much too long, we have finally scheduled our recording sessions for the following dates this January: Jan 9, 10, 11, 12, 17 (2x)
To calculate the total number of recording hours we can pay on each day, I will now need to know who, of those that won prizes, actually want their DVD's or T-shirts mailed, as this will of course effect the total number of hours we can record in the studio.
** Prizes **
We will not be mailing for some time, so you will have an opportunity to update your address info, but I need to know who wants which prizes, if any. For those who won a DVD/CD, all music and videos will permanently be hosted on multiple sources including: YouTube, Archive.org, Musopen.org, and Box (www.box.com/musopen). So those of you indifferent to receiving a CD or DVD in the mail, please consider these digital options instead. I will be using the Kickstarter site to verify who is eligible for which prizes, but i will largely be working off of your preferences listed in this survey: http://goo.gl/b1St0
** T Shirts **
Other good news, I was able to convince a well known t-shirt designer to create a couple awesome designs for the t-shirt prize with our theme "Set music free." We now have the difficult choice of picking only one winning design, please follow the link above to vote. If you didn't win a shirt and want to buy one, let me know!
** More Good News **
Despite the fact we haven't yet gotten the orchestra recordings, I have been able to acquire music from individual musicians and chamber groups, recording some great smaller-scale music for us. Everything will be online and delivered by the end of January, this additional music included. Some are real gems, one of which another Kickstarter project paid over 20k for alone, whereas here its just one small part.
Finally, for those of you who happen to be visiting or who live in Prague on our recording dates, you are welcome to come visit the studio, and possibly help out if there is a need. Just let me know in advance. The studios are in the heart of Prague, one of the largest and newest ones there.
