About this project
Z4 is a new Orchestronic album that I have been working hard to bring to life. This album will hopefully prove that I have something to offer the music world.
I have released 2 other albums in 2008 and 2010 that didn't do so well, but I strive to keep getting better every day and I have improved an immense amount since then!
I plan on releasing the Z4 album on February 7th, 2013 and a free EP in October 2012. The album will consist of 14- 16 songs and the EP will have at least 5 songs.
I have been able to gather my equipment so far with my own funds, however lately my funds have run dry due to various schooling debts and moving debts. So just like every young dude with a passion, I am out of money and full of motivation to make awesome stuff! Now I did recently land a better paying job so I can finally get my debts payed off in the next 2-3 years, but I really don't plan on waiting another 2-3 years for this album to hit peoples eardrums. So that is why I would like to kickstart the Z4 album into fruition!
Here are some samples of what I have been working on. Keep in mind
that the quality of music that is produced only gets even better if this
project is funded!
