A World Music/Jazz/Electronica/ project. Form New york City, to the world.

My name is Dario Boente and I am an Argentine pianist , keyboardist, composer and music producer. New York has been my home for the last 13 years. I have released several albums as a band leader, covering different styles of music, as well as some electronica, jazz and latin music styles.

Also I have play in several albums as a sideman and my songs/compositions can be found in more than 20 compilations albums. 

THE CONCEPT:

I choose Kickstarted to fund this project, because I don't want to depend on any record label to fund it. I want to have the freedom to compose whatever I want and choose to play with whoever and whatever I want, + I don't want anybody to tell me how and what to play. In other words, I want to be free, and make art that won't compromise. In order to do achieve that, I rather rely on real people that support independent art and expression.

Boente +1  will be a very special album, probably my most challenging and personal one yet to be made. For the first time, I will gather only some of my very close friends and feature their talents. I will not make it to please any record label (I am not using any) or trying to make  a "music hit".  Each song will feature an artist and it will be combination of Myself + 1 (the chosen artist).

This will an acoustic as well as an electronica Album, with a lot of samplers, drum loops, sinth sounds, some songs performed with acoustic instruments only and some songs with a combination of both. The album will also include some duets..

THE ARTISTS:

The album will feature Latin Grammy Winner pianist and composer Fernando Otero, 3 times Grammy Winner drummer Antonio Sanchez, Tap Dancers "The Lombard Twins", Flamenco guitar and composer Hernan Romero, Vibraphone player Christos Rafalides , and Bandoneon player JP Jofre among others.

Since the artists involved come for different artist  backgrounds, there will be no specific style of music, but it will have a lot of Jazz, Modern Tango, Flamenco and Electronica influences. The album will also include some acoustics duets..  I don't believe in Styles. Styles and labels separate artists. My purpose is to unite, not to separate.  

THE BUDGET:

 I am asking for $15,000, which is the minimum that I will need to finish this project , To more I get, the better I will take care of this well accomplished and talented artists that will play on this recording, they well deserve it! The budget will cover fees for each musician, recording studio, mixing and mastering,  as well as the art work and the pressing of the album. Any extra money after covering all these expenses, will be used for promotion of this project and towards my next album.

BECOME 1: 

I encourage you to visit my website, to ask me any question you might have, to learn more about the artists that will be involved on this project, learn about their music, their careers, etc, etc. I also included a couple of videos so you can get a closer idea of who I am and the flavor of my music and this future album.

I'll be going to India to teach at "Swarnabhoomi Academy Music" in Chennai, from October 22nd to Dec. 7th. Some of the artists involved on this project are currently on tour and they will come back this coming August. Due to the busy schedule of everybody involved, this project can be only recorded between August and October 2012. In other words ... NOW IS THE ONLY TIME TO GATHER AND EMBODY ALL THIS UNIQUE TALENT AND MAKE THIS HAPPEN!

 I hope you become a "+ 1" on this project, because, believe it or not, you are the most important one, and without you, this project will not be possible. 

Truly yours,

Dario Boente.
