About

$7,505

54

In February of 2016, I was selected as a winner of the ABLAZE Records "Orchestral Masters Composition Competition," a contest that reviewed numerous scores from a worldwide pool of applicants. 

As a winner of the award, I have the opportunity to have my piece recorded with the fantastic Brno Philharmonic Orchestra in the Czech Republic, and released worldwide by ABLAZE Records.

Your donation will help fund travel, pre-production, recording, mastering, album artwork, advertising, and release of "Refractions" on the ABLAZE Orchestral Masters CD Vol. 4., and some of the perks for donating will not be available after this Kickstarter closes.

Any amount helps. Thank you so much!

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter runs on an all-or-nothing model. If this project is not fully funded, it will not be possible.

The recording process always presents its share of challenges, and sometimes, unforeseen circumstances create a delay in editing, mastering, and release.

I am confident in the work of ABLAZE Records, and the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra. They both have a history of quality and success, and working with them would present an opportunity with minimal risk of technical difficulty, and a high ceiling for quality performance.
