BASIC.COMPLEX is Soft Science's debut album.
Let's try not to dress this up at all.
We're asking you for money.
Because the album that we have set out to create requires a lot of it.
It's not that we're too lazy to work for it, or too impatient to save up. On the contrary. Over the past eight months we've put more than $7,000 towards the effort. That money has gone towards things like hiring an experienced producer, purchasing necessary equipment, paying for a few days in a top-notch studio and getting the mixing and mastering process started. Even if this Kickstarter campaign is successful, there will still be more expenses (including album artwork and packaging) for which we will have to pay.
In all honesty, it comes down to time. We are anxious to finish this album. We are dying to let this music be heard. If this project is funded, your donation will be used to finish paying for the mixing and mastering process. Any remaining funds will go towards the manufacturing of the CDs.
We have faith in our friends, family and fans. We won't pretend we're doing you a favor by asking you to help us make our dream a reality. We hope you understand that we're coming to you in full humility and that we appreciate you even considering a donation.
We've compiled a list of rewards that we think you'll enjoy. This is meant to be an exchange and we want you to feel like you're truly getting value from this experience. Send us a message and tell us what we can do to make you feel a part of this album. We want to hear from you. Share this page with your friends, maybe they'll find something new and exciting in our music.
Thank you. Really.
