Help BAZ build a rehearsal & recording studio for artists
Help This not a band to keep recording their vocal medleys.
Hey, this is Baz. Welcome to this new Kickstarter campaign!
For those of you who backed us up during the previous round and for those of you who simply clicked by curiosity, here's what this campaign is all about:
I recently renewed an old French farm and created a collective to live in this place. It's called "BAZ EN/GRANGE DES ARTISTS" which could be translated into "BAZ HOME FOR ARTISTS". The main goal of this collective is to welcome artists (musicians, dancers, actors, writers, designers etc) and offer them a quiet and healthy environment to develop their artistic creations. When one becomes a member of the collective, everything is included, from food (vegetable garden / permaculture) to accommodation.
To make it brief, this campaign, through the a-cappella project “THIS IS NOT A BAND”, aims at supporting me in this huge project. The money collected will be used to buy new equipment to enhance the quality of artists hosting future recordings.
I hope you’ll find the rewards you’re interested in!
Share the word, and keep on rocking,
For those who don't know what "THIS IS NOT A BAND" is about:
“This is a not a band” is a special a cappella project built up around French drummer and composer Baz (P.O.Box, Modaz, President in a Box...). He wanted to offer vocal medleys of punkrock bands and gathered with three friends, Jeez (President in a Box), Rox (Huit de Coeur, Polysons) and Seb (P.O.Box) to start working on it one year ago. From the composition to the recording and video shooting, everything was done with a total “DIY” ethic.
The incredible ammount of comments and views on those medleys this past year made us want to go a step further, and we are now willing to record a full album, with a professional audio quality, but still keeping the "DIY" attitude, still working on it ourselves, and releasing it ourselves. Baz will record and mix the whole album, as he did previously.
The album will neither be sold nor distributed, and we will never make any money out of it: your contributions are a way to help Baz and THIS IS NOT A BAND us give those medleys a proper existence and to get them on a physical release.
