Our project, our goals

We are two musicians/composers from Italy. We write progressive rock music (symphonic prog) that draws inspiration from famous literary texts. We recently completed one album based on Part One of The Waste Land by T.S. Eliot. The album is titled "The Burial" and is available on major US Digital Stores. Our work encountered great success and was praised for its musical and artistic value. The album is available for digital download but, as you can imagine, we need to get to record labels if we want this project to grow. If you like, you can learn more about us at www.banaau.com or through our Facebook Page.

Why we are asking for your support

At the moment our aim is to get to FIM (International Music Exhibition) which is a place where independent artists can bring their ideas and get in touch with record labels. We already reserved our slot there and wil be performing "The Burial" on 11th September 2016. At the same time, we will have the occasion to present our work to record labels there to find a label that would produce our next work (we have two more musical projects, one based on poems by E.A. Poe and another one based on tragedies by Shakespeare. The slot at FIM has its own cost, and we also need resources to pay the musicians and for rehearsal rooms. We are really close to taking a big leap forward and your help can be decisive!

That's interesting... but what do Banaau sound like?

...Here are a couple of clips for you to listen to. Unfortunately, we can only post here instrumental parts since the text of The Burial is protected under copyright legislation outside of the US.

Listen to the opening section of Prologue:

And this is the instrumental closing section of Unreal City... With an acoustic touch at the end:

On a final note, we would like to thank all those who believe in our project and are currently helping us. Special thanks go to Lorenzo Abbona, Catharine Amato, Dario Bossi, Ernesto Fantozzi, Demetra Fogazza, Francesca Lollo, Alice Mangano, Roberto Ranzani, Aldo Totaro, and Chiara Vanoli.

Thank you!

 

Risks and challenges

What happens if we fall short? Well, we do hope this will not be the case. But... If things go wrong, that means we'll have to rely on our own resources. This is too an important step and we cannot miss it. If we do it together, we'll do it better and can have greater chance of success! Additionally, our own resources would be available for our following projects, like the recording of a brand new song we just completed (and where you could also participate in! Read our "rewards" for more details).
