"CRIMSON Chronicles" is a very special photo book, shot from a vantage point nobody else has - that of the bass player onstage with the band. This book features the early years of the King Crimson's incarnation with Robert Fripp, Bill Bruford, Adrian Belew, and Tony Levin starting with writing the groundbreaking Discipline album, and it chronicles life on the road, backstage, rehearsals, composition and more.. a real treat for any King Crimson enthusiast and anybody that wants an in depth, yet humorous look at behind the scenes of a rock band.
This is not just pages of photos - I wanted to take advantage of the latest technologies in books for tablets to bring this King Crimson experience to a whole new level… adding interactivity, voice commentary and anecdotes, videos and new original music to the photos. We've got some surprising features I'm sure will be enjoyed.
The book will be initially released for the iPad and it will be followed by an iPhone/iPod Touch version.
Your support is key to taking the experience to a whole new level. We've done a lot and we want to do more to add the best production and technology value possible. Video production is expensive and the more funds we have, the more features in our list we will be able to add to the book. The current prototype is very cool, but we'd like to make this book "Best in Class".
There are numerous pledging levels with great rewards for those kind enough to support the project, including you being part of the official book (your name and/or your own memorabilia featured in it), a limited quantity of autographed printed books that I will ship to your home, exclusive numbered Artist Proof prints, and more.
As with our music, we always try to break new ground. Say "I LIKE IT" and help us publish the best iPad Photo Book about the music world.
