1st Stretch Goal Reached! = Exclusive track to all supporters.

New Stretch Goal is $12,500 = Exclusive 60 minute mix of Original music and investment in visual equipment for music videos.

You guys are completely amazing.  We reached the second stretch goal at $12,500, which enables me to purchase some video equipment and also means every kickstarter supporter gets a free track AND a 60 minute exclusive mix of original music.

Here is the final goal.  If we can reach $15,000 before the end of the campaign, then I have time at home to work on creating music video(s), which is what Im most excited about for the future.  I've been learning software, sketching out timelines, dreaming of making special animated videos.  This is the evolution of my art, not only expressing myself musically, but creating short films, animations and videos which tell the visual story which matches the music.

Please tell your friends, share the project.  We're so close!  3 days left and I know we can make this next goal.

Big love from my heart to yours,
Evan


Greetings!

After many dreams and visions for the Spacehop Chronicles, I am proud to announce that it's finally time to make them happen!  The SpaceHop Chronicles will be a multipart series of electronic music EPs, exploring my background in classical composition, deep harmonics and emotional melodies realized through a combination of analogue synths, digital trickery and kinetic beat sculptures.  

The industry is changing, and opening up new possibilities for artists.  I believe that working directly with my fans to realize projects is the way forward.  Instead of relying on record labels and traditional models, communities can come together to support art and keep the creators surviving to help realize their dreams!

I've come up with some pretty cool rewards, and am deeply excited about the opportunity to print the first official Bluetech release on vinyl.

My break even to get this release out is $7250, and is broken down below. This is the absolute bare minimum break even point.  I have faith that not only will we reach this, but exceed it, which will allow me to begin work on Spacehop Chronicles Vol. 2!!!

$2000 - Publicity/marketing/advertising
$1500 - Custom illustration by Orlando Araceno
$2000 - Vinyl Printing
$1000 - CD Printing
$350 - Audio mastering
$400 - Poster and promotional material printing

I was ecstatic to work with one of my favorite Illustrators of all time, Orlando Araceno, and he turned out a ridiculously awesome illustration for this project in record time.  The giclee and poster rewards are definitely limited, one time only runs, so if you want one, now is the time to act!

See more of Orlando's work here:  http://www.behance.net/orlandoarocena

When I first started working on this release, I made the first track, and named it "Laika".  That production finished on Nov. 5th.  After completing the track, I did some research about "Laika", the tragic yet beautiful story of the first dog in space, who passed away on her maiden voyage on Nov. 5th.  The synchronicity was amazing, and somehow the music captured this idea of world changing exploration and mystery with a melancholic edge.  I explained the concept to Orlando, and he perfectly captured the vibe I wanted, with references to classic Communist era space posters, with Laika as our queen of space travel of course.

The reward I'm most excited about is the custom illustration/digital painting of one of your dreams.  I hope that someone is interested in this, and we get to collaborate into bringing a dream reality into the real world through our discussions and ideas as the visual piece comes together.  

See a few of the pieces I've done to realize dream visions below:


I really want this series to be special, and I put as much love and intention into the music as I possibly could, so I hope you join me in creating a success story of crowd funded art and music!

Big love,

Evan Bluetech

Risks and challenges

The greatest risk and challenge for this project is meeting the goal and being able to produce all of the amazing merchandise that I want to offer. Since the music and art is already finished, the only challenge is to get everything printed on it's way to you!
