Help me make my next CD by giving me your money AND your vocal samples! Your voice is going to sound great set to my compositions.
I hope you enjoyed my ridiculous video. Even though I'm not much of a Pitchman, I promise I will approach this project with the utmost professionalism when launched. So here's the pitch:
Some time back a friend of mine sent me a 2 minute audio clip of his 4 year old daughter singing and playing on a Casio keyboard. He asked if I would put some music to it. I pulled some of the best bits out, looped, processed, and added in my own twists. Now I'd like to record an entire CD that way. You can listen to "Maia" and more of my other music below.
go to my website to listen to some of my recent compositions. http://philpuleo.com/music
And now for your role in this collaboration. Along with your pledges, I need you to send me a sample recording of your voice, your kids voices, your pets voices or the voice of someone else you know. I will cut, edit, slice, dice, arrange, stretch, chew them up, spew them out and compose around them. Don't worry too much about the sound quality of your sample. I prefer a little grit. I think it will add to the character of the music. You can send random vocal/spoken word/monologue/ etc, but whatever you send, it should obviously be something that you would like to hear set to music. Please give a short explanation of the sample ie: This clip is of me yelling at the dog.
• LIMIT THE SAMPLE TO 2 MINUTES. File Format: mp3 (easier to e-mail)
• Send the files as soon as you pledge. Release is planned for Spring 2010 so files received AFTER December 31, 2009 will NOT be included in this project. See list of pledge rewards in sidebar for more details.
Note: Sending a sample after you pledge is optional but, the whole point of this project is to collaborate. So If you opt out of sending me a sample, you'll be missing out.
My goal is to make this CD sound like a film score and, with the help of your samples, give it a narrative flow. To get 500 special, limited edition CD's mastered; pressed; and stuffed into ECO-Wallets, I'll need a minimum funding of $2,300.
Thanks for taking the time to help me with my project. I'm looking forward to hearing how your audio madness meets mine.
Remember your credit card will not be charged if the project doesn't reach the $2300 goal. So you have nothing to loose!
Come of people work with me here! It's not that hard to record a short audio file. Use your phone. Many phones now have voice memo capabilities. Thats all you need. No fancy recording equipment. I'll take any sample. You could export the sound from a home video in iMovie or the PC equivalent.
or like I said before you don't have to send any clip just support the project by pledge alone. I'll do the rest.
Ok thats all the begging I'm going to do. Have a day
