8 days to go!
In the last few days, I've realized that the best (and most beautiful) aspect of carrying out this Kickstarter campaign for my upcoming CD "Noneto Ibérico" is the direct communication with music lovers. Someone I never met wrote this last Friday:
I've been listening to the streaming CD. As I remembered from the jazz gallery, music this special is part of what makes life worth living. This is a genuine masterpiece and I will be listening to it for the rest of my life, and although we do not know each other, I am very proud and happy for you. Congratulations."
A renowned music producer, whom I've been lucky to work in the past, pledged a rather large sum to the project. After I send him a thank you note, I received a simple response: "Keep up the good work..."
Feedback like this makes my life as a musician, bassist and composer make sense. Really!
So again, I just want to take this opportunity to thank you so much for your support. It means a lot to me! I also appreciate all the online sharing that backers have done. With only 8 days to go, every "share" or "tweet" counts!
I also wanted to remind you that you can actually stream the entire CD on my homepage at http://www.alexiscuadrado.com, and that you can see a few videos of the project on my youtube channel at http://www.youtube.com/alexiscuadrado, including a live performance and interview at WNYC and a video of the Noneto recording in the studio.
