                          Panacea - Three String Quartets

                  A new album by Peter Vukmirovic Stevens

I am very excited to announce we are ready to record a new album of music - Panacea  - three string quartets.  

I composed and premiered two new string quartets in Paris during my residency in 2016. The third quartet for the album was written and premiered in 2006.

Click the above video to hear an excerpt from String Quartet No. 1.

Members and performers with Seattle Symphony will perform the quartets on Panacea. It is my pleasure and honor to bring this album to life with these players, among the finest in our city.

We are scheduled to record the new album in July in Seattle, Washington.

                         The Budget 

The costs included in the album production are:

  • Studio time - $1000
  • Album Mastering - $500
  • Album Art - $750
  • Performer Fees - $4800 for four recording days

My goal for this campaign is to raise $4,800 to cover the four player's fees.

This is the financial hurdle for this project and where your support is essential.

My recording costs are low as I have been awarded discounted studio time through the Artist Assistance Program at Jack Straw Productions.

                                Bonjour Mes Amis!

                    Panacea - Trois quatuors à cordes

           Un nouvel album de Peter Vukmirovic Stevens

Je suis très heureux d'annoncer que nous sommes prêts à enregistrer mon nouvel album de musique - Panacea - trois quatuors à cordes. 

Deux nouveaux quatuors ont été composés et créés à Paris lors de ma résidence en 2016. Le troisième quatuor de l'album a été écrit et créé en 2006.

Cliquez sur la vidéo ci-dessus pour entendre un extrait du Quatuor à cordes N° 1.

Des membres du Seattle Symphony Orchestra interpréteront les quatuors sur l’album. C'est un plaisir et un honneur de collaborer avec ces joueurs, qui sont parmi les meilleurs de Seattle, pour donner vie à cet album.

Nous enregistrerons le nouvel album en juillet à Seattle, Washington.

                             Le Budget 

Les coûts inclus dans la production de l'album sont:

• Temps de studio - $1000

• Album mastering - $500

• Album artwork - $750

• Frais d'interprète - $4800 pour quatre jours d’enregistrement.

Mes coûts de temps de studio sont bas, car j'ai été lauréat d’un prix d'assistance artistique chez Jack Straw Productions.

La plus grosse dépense pour cet album sont les honoraires de quatre joueurs, totalisant $4800. C'est l'obstacle financier pour ce projet et pour lequel votre soutien est crucial.

Risks and challenges

This will be my third full album production.

The process for making this album will be like the previous productions. I have worked with two players of the quartet on my previous albums. I have also worked closely with the recording and mastering engineers on the previous productions.

I am confident we can bring you our best possible work.
