What we are trying to do: We want to make a set that includes a 10" record of original piano compositions and an 10x10 softcover photography book. A little background: From the summer of 2016 through late 2017, Hannah shot a lot of photos in the evening hours, some of which both she and I became quite enamored of. At the same time, I was working on a second batch of 10 waltz compositions to follow up my last record, “Dreams For Hannah”. The waltzes, too, had an evening feel to them. Both of us used the word “Eventide” a lot to describe both the images and the music, so here you have it: the Reeses Peanut Butter Cup of our recent creative endeavors. The music is written and being recorded, the photos are taken and are being edited into a book layout. A simple description of the piano pieces that I have written is that they are instrumental musette influenced pieces performed on piano (Chris), cello (Anna Roberts), bass (John Munson), and harp (Phala Tracy)--all incredible musicians, all recorded live to tape--so warm and lovely! A simple description of the book of photographs is that they are images of children and critters in the woods and near the water, outside and in the twilight, living as wildly as they can in the city. BONUS: we think it looks neat to mix some of the sheet music with the images, so there will be sheet music included in the book!

The money blah, blah, blah: We have saved up enough ourselves to pay for musicians and mastering of the recording, and a professional pigment based inkjet printer for Hannah to be able to offer fine art prints here and for an exhibition/performance of this project that we hope to have later in the year. What we need help with from you all is manufacturing costs for both. Based on estimates we have received from 2 local companies who we trust, it's looking like making the book will cost about $4000 and the record will cost about $5000. We are hoping that enough people will want them to preorder them  as a set and cover the costs of making them. THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERING OUR PROJECT!

Risks and challenges

If our project is funded, the only potential risks and challenges we can foresee is delays in manufacturing. The recording is underway and going fine, and the book layout is halfway finished. We don't expect them to be delayed, given the delivery dates we have allowed for here. :)

    THE SWEET SPOT! RECORD AND BOOK SET

    This is the deal: we are collaborating to make a matched set, Eventide the 10" colored vinyl record with Eventide the 10x10 photobook. We have made this set as affordable as possible. The book will also have sheet music for some of the songs interspersed with the photographs. They're gonna be pretty cool together...they are made to be together, and the book will not be sold separately here--we are only making 150 books and when they are gone, they are GONE. Shipping/hand delivery in continental US/Minneapolis is included in this pledge amount. :)
