About this project
Children on Every Continent Sing a Message of Hope and Oneness. Help Us Give Them a Sustainable Future!
AO [èi-o] n. ancient polynesian word; 1. pure light; 2. all colors
AOMUSIC is pan-cultural, uplifting and very rhythmic. We blend texture and spirit from every corner of the planet, and our objective is to inspire a fresh sense of connectedness in a complete range of global diversity. An international presence of children in our music carries a colorful message of unity (please watch the video above). The songs are meticulously crafted with a high standard of excellence, which has put us on the Grammy ballot twice in the last three years. We believe this album will be the one to brand us internationally, and help inspire a world of tolerance and promise. Our publishing Arcturian Gate donates to several causes for children through AO Foundation International, and the success of this album will be chronicled in a feature film documentary from CineVision to benefit each of these charities.
"Children populating our cultures today naturally enable our transition through the present changes, because they are a living providence of hope, and we should nurture each one as though kindling a flame for our survival. Many of the choirs we record come from depressed regions of the developing world, and we give back to them through AO Foundation International - an unbrella for several well organized and efficient charities. We continue to partner with great causes for children, orphaned by conflict and natural disaster, as we discover them. By backing this project, light shines ever more brightly on their future."
We are raising these funds for complete production of our new album, and are scheduled to rehearse children in Nepal, Ireland, Germany and Haiti, each of whom we will need to record on location this year.
We compose, produce and perform all the music, which often exceeds one hundred tracks per song. We mix everything at Jay Oliver's studio in Los Angeles, and will master the album at Universal West. We hope to raise enough funds to also cover the first manufacturing run of CDs prior to the album's release in Feb 2013.
Our Commitment and Gratitude Always,
Richard Gannaway, founder of AOMUSIC
