HOLOGRAPHIC is raising money for our 2013 live, four-concert new music project and to commission composer Jonathan Sokol!
HOLOGRAPHIC has reached our one-year mark, and we are more committed than ever to provide scintillating concerts of new chamber music to the public. We have reached a point where our project requires a little extra support, and that's why we are seeking you as our partners for our mission. Recruiting, curating, promoting, and performing concerts in public is something we love to do. We hope that you will share that love and will contribute to our 2013 project goals.
2013: THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD, HOLOGRAPHIC-STYLE
Our project for 2013 is a four-concert new music series that will take place in alternative venues and high schools located in Bloomington, IN. These concerts (February, April, October, and December) will feature new, innovative, and exciting chamber music played by some of the most dazzling young performers in our fair land. However, performing new music is only part of our mission: we believe that premiering new pieces is not only our privilege but our duty.
With this in mind, an important part of your collaboration with us is the fertilization of a new music egg: Tsubame, by Jonathan Sokol. Jonathan has been working feverishly to complete a sinfonietta (small chamber orchestra) piece for us to bring to life. Won't you join our team and contribute to the commissioning fund of a brand new music baby?
The rest of your generosity will go towards other vital resources (see below), believe you us! HOLOGRAPHIC concerts cannot happen without the generosity of the performers who volunteer their time and the staff who spend countless hours organizing and promoting. Up until now, HOLOGRAPHIC has been funded by the co-founders themselves. In order to maintain a level of spectacle beyond our wildest dreams, we are proposing this budget for success:
* $3000 to commission Jonathan Sokol's Tsubame for sinfonietta
* $2000 to rent performance spaces and purchase insurance for concerts
* $1000 to professionally record and edit audio and video of all four concerts
* $500 for technical support (moving equipment, piano technicians, etc.)
* $500 for promotional expenses (printed and digital advertisements)
* $500 for score and parts preparations, printing, binding, and shipping fees
There are multiple levels of donations, and contributing as little as $10 will get you perks! Every little bit counts, and we appreciate your support!
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
As a new, volunteer-run project, we have endured last-minute program and performer changes, printing issues, technical snafus, and Bloomington weather. Our current team is top-notch and does not crack under pressure; we work hard until we get things right.
After one year of hurdles under our belts, we are absolutely positive that we can provide the services and perks we have presented in our campaign. If faced with old or new obstacles, we will do what we have always done: persevere. The crowds are growing, our name and mission are spreading, and we will accept no other path besides the onward and upward. If we do not meet our Kickstarter goal, we will continue to pursue other financial options to continue our project.
Remember: we are Holographic, and so are you!
