About

£80.00

7

I am a composer based in Bath, UK, and I make text based scores. These are probably best described as part music, part art, part poetry. I am currently studying a Masters in Composition at Bath Spa University.

This project will create a set of five Christmas cards, each with a unique piece of text art/music/poetry. My work draws on shared experiences to create a written text that helps create music in the mind of the reader. Each of these cards will focus on a different element of Christmas day and provide a piece that can be performed if wished, or read as text art. The current design samples can be found here.

The funding goal is set at £50. This is the minimum amount needed to allow printing of cards, envelopes and postage. There is no upper limit to this project as greater funding would allow for greater costs. At the lowest funding goal I will not be paid as the artist. Any money raised above operating costs will go towards supporting my studies and the creation of future work.

Finally, thank you for taking the time to explore this project. I hope it has caught your interest. All the money spent on this project will be going to printing companies etc. within the United Kingdom. And you'll be helping to fund an emerging composer starting his own journey.

Risks and challenges

The greatest risk to this project is timing. I have sought to overcome this by being prepared. As this campaign goes live card design is nearly completed and once the funding stage is completed only printing will remain. This will have been arranged before the completion of the campaign and will only need confirmation of order numbers.
