the Super8; music from the movies in your head
Hi people! I'm Will van Spronsen, the one to blame for the Super8...
I started recording this project, the Super8, with Colm Meek after having immersed myself in the Saba debut CD, (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/saba)
I was (am) so blown away by Colm's vision on that CD and all the amazing musicians who worked on it that I asked Colm to produce and record my songs, and as my recording progressed, I ended up in the enviable position of having all those people and more playing on my project.
Between scratching for survival and paying for the recording, sometimes trading out carpentry work for studio time, the completed recording and final mix are something I am really proud of.
the Super8 is a complete work, with songs that span the spectrum of my experience and my beliefs. In a world poised on the edge of dramatic change, this is a timely work which I believe really needs to find a wide audience.
We took our time and made a great record, and now, in order to actually get it out into the world- to watch it stand on its own legs, I need some help from you; I'm asking this beautiful community of Kickstarters to be my backers.
The mastering and pressing, and the distribution to radio stations for airplay, stores for the listeners, and publications for review, is what I'm asking for your help with.
With your backing, the Super8 will be released in July of this year!
