This fundraiser will go to raising funds for the production, recording time, engineering, artwork, and music videos for my upcoming project Dreams Of Eternity.
Approximate estimations of use
Production = 17 Songs x $30 per beat = $510
Recording = 17 Songs, 17 Hours minimum; $30/hr studio time = $510
Engineering = 17 songs x $30 per track = $510
Album Artwork = $300
Music VIdeos = $500/video x 2 videos = $1000
Site maintenance(http:spokenphor.com) = $250 for 1 year
Total = $3050
As you can see, I am not including total costs in the project goal
because I also will be contributing to the project out of my own pocket.
It is only fair and right to due so! I humbly ask for support to make
the project in the most professional high quality fashion, and I
genuinely appreciate all who contribute! Below is an excerpt I have
written, breaking down my thought process as I finalized the name of my
upcoming mixtape - Dreams of Eternity. Enjoy & Thank you!
Dreams of Eternity.
Eternity. When we think eternity,
we think forever. This grappling word takes our minds and our hearts to
places where we normally do not think to go. It encompasses our fears,
it encompasses our goals, and it encompasses our crux - what we truly
believe ourselves to be purposed for.
I am afraid of myself - afraid that all unique, blue moon qualities I
possess will amount to nothing but particles of existence, pieces of
greatness seeking a never to be found glory, simply because of my own
inadequacy. My inadequacies as a man cut me as deep as knife wounds: my
fear of risk, my fear of limited potential, my fear of failure and my
fight against growth preventing resentment are my only obstacles.
I dream of words - words that transcend the
limits of our physical world and motivate us to commune with our nature.
Words that fight the battles our hands can not; and then I dream of unportended victories, spoken out of the mouth of a young child, victim of fate chosen by an unknown.
The allure of the world is beautiful. The allure of what the world can
be even more so. Snatching off the ropes that have been tied across our
souls and freeing us of the torment is eternity.
We do not know what happens when we pass. Yet we know that something
within us lives on. I am young, and I am a man. How great will that
legacy be for you? I dream of mine.
