Back in 2012 I started releasing a series of EPs that were 5 songs in 5 minutes. The point of the series was to bring the fun & spontaneity back to music as well as force a final product out. To help artists be creative & to force them out of their comfort zones & to experiment & have fun. It’s been super rewarding creatively & I love seeing how people face the challenge. So far we’ve put out 43 installments in the series. You can listen to them all on Spotify if you'd like to get a taste for the experimental, post rock, darkwave, drone, & soundscapes that have appeared in the series so far. So anyway, the reason the project is on Kickstarter is to help finance continuing the series. With the income from subscriptions we’ll be able to cover recording fees as well as helping to finance advertising & promotion for the series.
Upcoming contributors for the series include: Promute, Remora, Small Life Form, Joseph Kyle, Anda Volley, Cloaca, Bronze Eye, Fullness Off Lack, & Azalia Snail.

Risks and challenges
I've put out over 40 releases in the 5in5 series & over 200 releases all together, so while I admit sometimes artists backout or things go wrong with a release, I don't foresee anything stopping these releases from coming out.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
