Project Completely Funded!

All Stretch Goals Unlocked!!!

 

  

 Hi! My name is Andrew. Welcome to my first Kickstarter campaign. 

 I'm a Canadian composer (read: full-time library employee who composes on the side) and would like to invite you to participate in my current music project -- ambient music inspired by Charles Messier. 

 

Charles Messier

  Charles Messier was a French astronomer best known for finding and cataloguing night sky objects that have come to be known as Messier Objects.

 There are 110 Messier Objects in total, some some of which are quite, quite lovely. I've selected M57 (the Ring Nebula) as the focus of the first composition for this project.

My Music

 

 Quiet Solitude was my third full-length album (released in 2013). If you're curious about where I've been, it's a good place to start.

 

 

 Thank you for checking out my campaign!

P.S. The music used in my Kickstarter video is called "Vacant Lot" from my 2015 ambient release, Hollowville.

   

   

  

Risks and challenges

The risks with this project are primarily related to the computer equipment I'm using to create these compositions with. As long as they're good, this project is good.

I've been composing & releasing music online through several online distributors since 2012. At one point in time I was releasing a new album every 10 weeks. I'm a workhorse when I need to be, and this is a time when I need to be one.
