About

Finally! A new CD by guitarist Daniel Salazar recorded in Spain and the US!

(Para Español, presione el botón "cc" en el panel de controles del video. El texto en Español se encuentra debajo del texto en Ingles))

I am very excited to announce that I will be recording a new album of Spanish Classical guitar combined with Latin and World rhythms!  I feel fortunate that so many people have told me how much they enjoy my music. My last CD, Mosaico, was released 10 years ago and I still get great comments about it. Since then, I’ve been busy composing and arranging new pieces that are now ready to be recorded. I am especially excited that I will be recording some of the music this summer in Cordoba and Granada, Spain, where I’ll be working with amazing classical and flamenco musicians!

If you haven't heard my music, I invite you to take a look at my website: www.danielsalazar.com

The new compositions include more Flamenco elements as well as very cool rhythms influenced by Brazilian and Latin grooves with titles like "Dança De Verao" and 'Arranque". The classical influence is present as always in my music with pieces that feature lyrical melodies and orchestral arrangements  such as "Cielo Azul" and "Canción".

And there's more! I'll be posting previews of the new music very soon, so watch for updates and news as the recording progresses.

I am thrilled to be using Kickstarter, this revolutionary platform that since 2009 has allowed creative thinkers from around the world make thousands of amazing projects a reality through the direct support of people like you.

I would like you to take part in this project by making a pledge to pre-order the CD and helping launch its production. By doing so, you will not only get an early release of the recording, but also very cool rewards.

YOU can take part in the creation of this CD and be the first to have an advance copy of my new recording of Spanish guitar with Latin and World rhythms!

Here’s how it works:

You make a pledge to pre-order the CD, and your order does not get charged unless we meet our funding goals by the set deadline. There are various levels of participation each with very cool rewards.

We plan to start by raising $5,500, which will help us launch the project and cover the initial recording and production costs to guarantee delivery of a five track CD. Once we’ve reached that mark, we’ll really need your help to spread the word among your friends, family and everyone you know about this project, and keep pledging. Reaching our next Stretch Goal #2 of $8,500 will allow us to record additional tracks.

As those of you that have seen my live performances may know, I often perform my music with an amazing group of international musicians and orchestral ensemble. I am so confident in your support that I know we will go on to reach our Ideal Stretch Goal #3 of $20,000 that will allow us to so to hire additional orchestra musicians and deliver beautifully sounding full length CD.

The way Kickstarter works, if we don’t reach our set dollar goal, your pledge does not get charged and the project DOESN’T GET FUNDED. It’s really all or nothing.

However, I’m confident that together we can do this!

OUR TIMELINE

  • Kickstarter Campaign: May 16-June 22, 2015
  • Preliminary recording preparation has already begun!
  • June- Studio recording begins
  • July: RECORDING IN SPAIN
  • End of July: the first advance track to backers goes out
  • August-November: recording continues in the U.S.
  • December: Post-production and manufacturing of physical CD
  • January 2016: Final delivery

People ask me all the time, “When is your next record coming out?” Well, the time is now, and you can help make it happen!

Thank you so much for being a part of making this album a reality. Any pledge of any amount will help tremendously, and even just sharing this with your friends will make a big difference.

I will be posting frequent updates to keep you informed of our progress. And please, send any questions that you may have about the process, rewards or any other part of the project. I also welcome your suggestions or comments.

I’m really looking forward to making a great album for you!

-DANIEL


Español

Estoy muy emocionado de anunciar que estaré grabando un nuevo álbum de guitarra clásica española combinada con ritmos latinos! Me siento afortunada de que tantas personas me han dicho lo mucho que disfrutan de mi música. Mi último disco, Mosaico, fue lanzado hace 10 años y sigue teniendo grandes comentarios al respecto. Desde entonces, he estado ocupado componiendo y arreglando nuevas piezas que ahora están listas para ser grabada. Estoy especialmente emocionado de que estaré grabando parte de la música de este verano en Córdoba y Granada, España, donde estaré colaborando con increíbles músicos clásicos y flamencos!

Si usted no ha escuchado mi música, los invito a echar un vistazo a mi pagina web: www.danielsalazar.com

Las nuevas composiciones incluyen más elementos de flamenco, así como ritmos nuevos influenciados por estilos brasileños y latinos con títulos como "Dança De Verao" y "Arranque". La influencia clásica está presente como siempre en mi música con piezas que cuentan con melodías líricas y arreglos con orquesta tales como "Cielo Azul" y "Canción".

Y aún hay más! Estaré publicando muestras de la nueva música muy pronto, así que busquen las noticias a medida que avanza la grabación.

Estoy muy contento de estar usando Kickstarter, esta plataforma revolucionaria que desde 2009 ha permitido a artistas creativos de todo el mundo hacer realidad miles de proyectos increíbles a través del apoyo directo de personas como ustedes.

Me gustaría que ustedes tomaran parte en este proyecto, haciendo un compromiso para pre-ordenar el CD y ayudar a lanzar su producción. Al hacerlo, no sólo obtendrán una copia avanzada de la grabación, pero también premios muy interesantes.

Tu puedes tomar parte en la creación de este CD y ser entre los primeros en tener una copia anticipada de mi nueva grabación de la guitarra española con ritmos latinos y mundiales!

HE AQUÍ COMO FUNCIONA:

Ustedes hacen una promesa de pre-ordenar el CD, y su orden no se cobra al menos que alcancemos nuestra meta de fondos en el plazo fijado. Hay varios niveles de participación cada uno con premios muy interesantes.

Comenzaremos por reunir la cantidad de $ 5,500, lo que ayudará a lanzar el proyecto y cubrir los costos de grabación y de producción inicial para garantizar la entrega de un CD de cinco pista. Una vez que hemos llegado a esa marca, vamos a realmente necesitar su ayuda para correr la voz entre sus amigos, familiares y conocidos para promover el proyecto. Esto nos ayudara a alcanzar nuestro próximo Meta #2 de $8,500 que nos permitirá grabar pistas adicionales.

Aquellos de ustedes que han visto mis presentaciones en vivo sabrán que a menudo realizo mi música con un increíble grupo de músicos internacionales y orquesta sinfónica. Estoy tan confiado en su apoyo que sé que llegaremos a nuestro Meta Ideal # 3 de 20.000 dólares que nos permitirá así a contratar músicos de orquesta adicionales y poder completar un bello CD de larga duración.

La forma en Kickstarter funciona, si no llegamos a nuestra meta fija en dólares, su orden no se cobra y el proyecto no se realiza.

Es realmente todo o nada.

Sin embargo, estoy seguro de que juntos podemos logrlo!

NUESTRO CALENDARIO:

  • Campaña Kickstarter: 16 mayo-22 junio, 2015
  • La preparación preliminar para la grabación ya ha comenzado!
  • Junio: Comienza la grabación de estudio
  • Julio: GRABACIÓN EN ESPAÑA
  • Finales de julio: el primer adelanto de la pista inicial
  • Agosto-noviembre: la grabación continúa en los EE.UU.
  • Diciembre: Post-producción y fabricación de CD físico
  • Enero 2016: Entrega final

La gente me pregunta todo el tiempo: "Cuando sale tu próximo disco?" Bueno, ahora es el momento, y ustedes pueden ayudar a lograrlo!

Muchas gracias por ser parte de hacer este álbum una realidad. Cualquier contribución de cualquier cantidad ayudará enormemente, e incluso simplemente compartiendo esto con sus amigos hará una gran diferencia.

Estaré publicando noticias frecuentes para mantenerles informados de nuestro progreso. Y, por favor envíen cualquier pregunta que puedan tener sobre el proceso, premios o cualquier otra parte del proyecto. También doy la bienvenida a sus sugerencias o comentarios.

Gracias!

-Daniel

Risks and challenges

My main goal with this project is to make a superbly produced CD that you can enjoy listening to. Our primary challenge is not reaching our funding goals; if that happens, the recording does not get made. That is why I have been working hard on my end to prepare music scores, line up musicians, rehearse and have everything ready to start the actual recording process.

There was a statistic circulating recently that said it takes 10,000 hours of focus and study to become an expert at one specific field of study. I can tell you that recording just one song with precision and musicality takes a lot of preparation and hard work. My musicians and I have done that work and we are eager share this music with you!

Help us overcome the main financial challenge so that we can produce this recording for you.

A project of this nature may also face production delays. We are planning carefully to deliver all the items on time. If we anticipate any changes, you will be notified as soon as possible. You can be assured that we will do everything possible to complete this project in a timely manner!

ESPAÑOL

Mi principal objetivo con este proyecto es producir un CD de gran calidad que ustedes puedan disfrutar. Nuestro reto principal es no alcanzar nuestras metas de financiación; si eso sucede, la grabación no se realiza. Es por eso que he estado trabajando duro por mi parte para preparar partituras musicales, alinear músicos, ensayar y tener todo listo para iniciar el proceso de grabación.

Hubo una estadística que circulo recientemente que decía que se necesitaban 10.000 horas de concentración y estudio para convertirse en un experto en un campo específico. Yo puedo decir que la grabación de una sola canción con precisión y musicalidad requiere de una gran cantidad de preparación y trabajo duro. Mis músicos y yo hemos hecho ese trabajo y estamos ansiosos en grabar esta música para ustedes!

Estamos contando con su participación para realizar la meta!

Un proyecto de esta naturaleza también podría enfrentar retrasos en la producción. Estamos planeando cuidadosamente para entregar todos los artículos a tiempo. Si prevemos algún cambio, se les notificará tan pronto como sea posible. Ustedes pueden estar seguros de que vamos a hacer todo lo posible para completar este proyecto en tiempo y forma!
