About this project

How do you describe something that has a physical form, but the form is not of relevance. We didn't start out to make a CD, we wanted to curate an album out of respect for the hundreds and thousands of musicians who are doing what they do out of passion.

We are both music fans. we have been for years, and we are both relatively unmusical, yet we still devoted a large part of our personal lives to music. One of us runs one of the most popular blogs for underground instrumental music, the other runs a small label for the same music genre. We do so because we want to be involved and this is how we can apply our passion. We both promote new and upcoming bands as far as we can.

As such, we have made many friends over the years. And as much as we appreciate their friendship, we appreciate their support even more. We asked many musician friends if they would be interested in participating in this project, and 98% said yes. They didn't say yes to make money, they did it because we're on the same wave-length.

And thus we present our album, "Ode To an Unspoken Movement". 35 tracks, each and every one of them unreleased, each and every one of them brilliant, and each and every one of them showing the diversity of the genre we have come to love. Post Rock has many faces, instrumental, epic, ambient, electronic, alternative, glitchy, crescendo-filled and so on. Whatever you may know of the genre. you will find tracks on this album that meet your expectations, and you will find many that don't. And exactly that is the strength of this album.

We obviously want you to know what you're getting in this package, here are a couple of the tracks:

Artists involved (in alphabeitcal order): 6LA8, A Shelter In The Desert, Aesthesys, All You've Seen, Collapse Under The Empire, Crimson Mourn, Dolls Come To Life, Francesco Berta and the Modern Dinosaurs, Herbstlaub, Human Pyramids, Jet Plane, Kriva, Labirinto, Late Night Venture, Linear Bells, Luop Garou, Monsters Build Mean Robots, My Cats A Stargazer, My Education, ODDS & ENDS, Qualia, Sky Flying By, Somnium, The Nikki Grace Experience, The Stars Above, This Patch of Sky, Thursday Bloom, Tunturia.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges? If we're brutally honest, we face no risks. We could release the album digitally, and collect funds to finance the CD pressing. So why are we asking fans for funds? Well, there would be no guarantee that selling the album digitally would raise enough funds for the CDs (or vinyl), and in the same way that most of the involved artists cannot live from their music, neither can we. We know that the album is good, and we want to see it pressed to CD, and ideally vinyl. And that is our challenge which we are asking like-minded people to help us with.

None of the musicians involved have even mentioned money, they gave us an unreleased track without even considering it. Some even booked studio time and recorded a completely new track, just because we asked. Such friendship, musicianship and "go for it" attitude humbles us, and we want to make this count. The model in the artwork, as well as the photographer have also graciously given us their time and work at no cost.

So far, we have paid for mastering and posters ourselves, and we are doing most of the work ourselves - artwork, preparations for the pressing company, marketing and so on. We don't want money for that, we want to get this album out on CD and ideally vinyl. The target of 5500 will pay for the professional pressing of 500 digipacks, each with 4 CDs, numbered, in a full colour packaging that is intentionally minimal - we don't want the packaging to get in the way of the music.

So this is how we are planning this: When we hit £5500, we will get the album pressed onto a 4 CD Digipack.

Should we raise more that £5500, then that will be spread evenly amongst the artists. Unless we reach £12000, which we consider to be a very stretched goal, at which point we will also press vinyl.
