About this project

the basics

Listen to the demo. If you think this is cool music, backing the project will make it even cooler, because it will turn a demo into something more sonically palatable and get the sheet music in the hands of musicians.

the plan

I have written a quartet for double bass called HAIL. This is a five-movement piece of music about fifteen minutes long. I want to make a studio recording to distribute with original limited-edition artwork (prints), and ideally, facilitate a premiere of the music.

Below, you can listen to and download demo tracks for this project.

who I am

Adam Rowe, a composer and native of Knoxville, Tennessee. I have been writing music for several years, but this will be the first time I’ve tried anything big with it. Instrumental music, especially classical, has always been my passion and I’m hoping to kick start my hobby into something more. (I’m also a visual artist, which is why some of the offers here involve original limited-edition prints.)

the inspiration

You can see additional details about the composition itself, along with additional materials that get created along the way during this project’s duration at http://adamrowe.com/hail.

schedule

The performers have agreed to make the recording as soon as funding is complete. The original artwork for the CD, LP, and score options has been created; I'm just waiting on quantities to begin production. This material is estimated to be produced and distributed in October 2017.

budget

where the money will go
where the money will go

A big chunk of the money will end up going to the performers. Even though this increases the amount needed to fund the project, this is very important to me. The rest will basically cover the cost of materials.

why I care

The last thing I want to do is a vanity recording. Ultimately, not that much money is involved if around ~200 people participate. By funding the project here, I can know if people are behind the music from the beginning.

Also, if everything goes well with a project this small, I will go full steam ahead with larger compositions.

Risks and challenges

The only risks involved are those associated with unforeseen delays in printing, CD / LP pressing, and shipping. However, having a print production background, I am confident in the estimated timeline.
