Hi! Welcome to our Kickstarter. 

We finished recording an album all by ourselves, and we want to release it into the world for people to enjoy! But first, we need to get it professionally mixed, mastered and printed. 
10 songs have been recorded over the past half year, on our own gear, and they are ready for the next step - mixing. 

Mixing is the process of organizing recorded sounds into something more attractive/familiar to listen to. Every album that you have heard has been mixed in some way. We would like a professional mixing engineer to handle this part of the process because this is something that none of us have experience in. Considering how much time we spent recording it, we want it to come out great. 

After mixing there is mastering, which is a process in which an engineer evens out the sound of the record as a whole. Final level setting and equalizations will take place here. This process takes it to the next level and makes a record sound like a record. After that, we will get physical copies made, and the mission will be accomplished!

The money made here will pay for the mixing, and mastering, and an initial run of physical copies. 


I want to thank in advance anyone who helps out, it means the world to me. 

    Love
      ~Alan, and the rest of the Tongue Sculptors
