Why am I asking for contributions for my next album? 

Let me explain by example. I have made 9 United States appearances over the last two years and have 8 scheduled for next year. You have seen my videos on YouTube over 1.8 million times. Yet my past CD’s have not been released there by the large record company with which I have worked– only by CD Baby that pays minimal royalties. So I have significant US performances. A huge number of You Tube visitors. But the record company will not promote my CDs in the US or in much of the rest of the world, for that matter. 

 Now you get it. Selling records is hard. Selling even great albums, which I expect this one to be, without full backing of your record company is impossible. I need to control my own destiny in the US and other classical markets by financing my own records. That is why I need you--now! 

 A final point. I love Kickstarter. But they have one essential rule—you raise all of your goal in 40 days or you get nothing. I am off to a great start, but as the days pass by, the urgency increases. So please give today. Just click on the magic button. Tell your friends about this opportunity, too. Working together, we can swing the pendulum back toward supporting artists, without whom there is not art.

My love and best wishes to each of you!

Jasmine Choi

UPDATES FOR KOREAN FANS:

안녕하세요. 여러분의 플루티스트 최나경입니다~^^!

많은 분들께서 이번 프로젝트에 관심을 가져주시고 궁금해 해주셨는데 여기에 부연설명을 하려고 합니다~

이번에 저는 그야말로 맨땅에 헤딩하는구나 하는 생각을 무릅쓰고 다음 음반을 준비하고 있습니다. 이루어질 수 있을지는 모르겠지만 음반을 녹음하는 것에서부터 시작해서 많은 준비가 필요한데, 무엇보다도 개인이 큰 자금을 마련하기가 어려워서 크라우드펀딩을 시작하게 되었습니다.

크라우드 펀딩이란, 많은 사람들의 기부금으로 펀딩을 해서 음반을 만들고, 대신에 기부자들의 참여한 각각의 금액에 따라 음반을 비롯해서 포스터, 컬러링, 무료 콘서트 티켓, 무료 스카이프 레슨, 재스민의 직접 불어드리는 비디오 선물, 재스민이 쓰던 악보, 하우스 콘서트 등등의 선물과 이벤트로 보답하는 시스템입니다.

그런데 이 킥스타터 라는 크라우드펀딩 사이트는, 정해진 기간 안에 목표금액을 달성하지 못하면 기부금을 전혀 받지 못하고 따라서 기부자들에게도 모든 금액이 되돌아가게 되는 룰이 있습니다. 따라서 음반도 나오지 못하겠지요..

기부라기 보다는, 제 다음 음반의 사인이 들어간 리미티드 에디션을 예약주문 하신다고 생각해주시면 이해하시기 더 쉬우실 것 같습니다.

킥스타터 링크로 들어가셔서 페이지의 오른쪽에 쭉 보시면 각 기부금에 따른 선물 리스트가 있고요. 각각의 리스트를 클릭하시면 음반 공식 발매일 이전에 직접 한국까지 사인이 들어간 음반과 포스터가 자동배달이 됩니다.

참여방법:

1. 킥스타터 링크에 들어갑니다: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2035001089/the-telemann-files

2. 모바일 사용자의 경우, "read more" 혹은 "details" 버튼을 누르시면 부연설명이 나옵니다.

3. 페이지에 보시면 기부금액에 따라 음반을 비롯해서 포스터, 컬러링, 무료 콘서트 티켓, 무료 스카이프 레슨, 재스민이 쓰던 악보, 하우스 콘서트 등등의 선물과 이벤트가 있는데, 원하시는 섹션을 클릭합니다.

4. 킥스타터에 어카운트를 만드시거나, 혹은 페이스북 어카운트가 있으신 분들은 페이스북으로 로그인을 합니다.

5. 바로 아마존 페이지로 넘어가는데, 아마존에 어카운트가 있으신 분들은 아마존에 로그인을 하시거나, 없으신 분들을 아마존에 가입을 합니다.

6. 오는 11월 11일에 펀딩이 완료되면 그때 금액이 결제가 되고, 펀딩이 성공적으로 달성되지 못하면 결제도 전혀 되지 않습니다.

7. 페이스북이나 트위터에 많이 알려주시고 펀딩이 잘 되길 기원해주세요:)

한가지 아쉬운 점은 기부하실 때 아마존 사이트에 가입하셔야 하는데 모두 영어로 되어 있어서 어려워하시는 분들이 많더라구요. 그래서 특히나 한국 분들이 그런 복잡함을 감수하시면서 참여해주시면 제가 받는 감동은 배가 되어 돌아옵니다^^

정말 번거로우시겠지만 이번 프로젝트의 꿈이 현실로 이루어지는 것을 조금이나마 도와주신다면 진심으로 감사하겠습니다!

최나경 드림

추신: 응원비디오를 만들어서 제 페이스북 (www.facebook.com/flutenews) 에 공유해주시면 발매 시기에 맞춰 무료로 음반을 보내드립니다.

Risks and challenges

Every time I walk out on the stage, there is a risk – that I might not perform well, that the audience might not like what I play, that the lights will go out....you know the rest! With this project, the risks are even larger because I am counting on you and your support to make it happen. I need to have my own record label as it is almost impossible to deal with the larger recording companies when it comes to getting paid for records sold. Royalty rates are very small so when I sell a CD today, the money I make is very small compared to the price you pay.
By having my own company, I can make enough to finance future projects without having to come to you – this will be the first and last time I will need to ask you to help.
The rewards are many – this will help me to move beyond the places in world where I am a known artist, and YOU will be the reason we can succeed!
I also want my company to eventually showcase other artists whom I admire, so this is a really long-term project reward for all of us!!
