DIGITAL NOISE ACADEMY : DEBUT ALBUM: PATRONAGE
DNA is an innovative, interactive, recording project that needs funding to finish its debut album.
Digital Noise Academy is a group of six like-minded musicians who can make awesome music together. This is essentially a dream project for the six, busy music professionals, that make up DNA. We have three full-time music producer/mixers, one solo artist, and two band members. See each members Bio and Pic below.
We have already completed two songs “Melting Inside” and “Thursday Night Party”, so we have completed the “proof of concept” stage of our project. Both these songs are currently available for free on our website www.digitalnoiseacademy.com.
What we need now is funding that is adequate enough to pull the band members away from their various other pursuits, long enough to finish a 10 song album. We already have more than a handful of additional songs started, we just need the funding that Kickstarter can provide to help us complete our dream of a finished and released album.
Since DNA is a very collaborative project, we have reflected that in our rewards. Three of the rewards actually include making music with us.
If our goal of $80,000 is funded, this is how we plan to use it:
-$30k for remaining recording costs.
-$20k for reward fulfillment (CD Manufacturing, throwing a release party, etc.).
-$30k for a 5k payment to each of the six band members for their musical contributions.
