Hello friends. My name is Adrienne Orpheus, perhaps better known as adorpheus. You may be familiar with my cosplay work, especially if you go to Dragon Con...
You might know me as the vegan culinary genius who posts recipes on adorpheus.com
Or you might know my music, especially you've seen me DJ/perform at certain venues around Massachusetts.
Good news, everybody! I am writing and recording my first album as adorpheus - it's going to be an EP containing 4 tracks PLUS 3 or 4 remixes of life-changing electronic music produced and performed by yours truly.If you were at the Miss Star Trek Universe pageant at Dragon Con 2013 (above), you've already heard part of one of the unreleased tracks that's going to be on it.
The money raised here will go to fund the following things, amongst other stuff:
- recording costs
- artwork/design costs and other cool things
- renumeration for remixers
- mastering fees
- marketing/advertising costs
If you are familiar with any of my songs that are on Soundcloud, they are all getting re-mastered, re-mixed, and some completely re-done. Everything on the EP will be virtually never heard before.
I have awesome remixers lined up for the EP and I'm extremely excited about all of them. They are as follows (so far):
Andrew Futral has produced the last three mc chris records as well as the one that hasn't come out yet, mc chris foreverrr. He is also the producer and guitarist for Field Mouse and the genius behind the Age of Rockets.
Flexstyle is one of my favorite artists ever, is well known for his OCRemixes. If you've seen me spin at any venue, you have definitely heard his music, since I drop his stuff during my sets all the time (because he rules).
Everyone will get a link to download the album for free.
The following rewards or a combination thereof will be included with some of the contributions as well (please see specific amounts on the right for details).
These will be die-cut stickers of the adorpheus logo and the "Ice Queen" logo (above). Smaller contributions will get the adorpheus one. If you contribute more you can get both. Please stick them to things responsibly.
There are currently 3 tshirt designs in the adorpheus merch store.
If you choose to contribute the appropriate amount in order to receive a shirt you can choose whatever shirt you want. Please specify which one you want with your contribution, what size you want, and whether you want a unisex shirt or women's fitted shirt.
SIGNED SHOW FLYERS
These are flyers printed with MA show dates on them, designed by Ell from the Farthest Star. Those who receive these will have a loving message from yours truly scribbled somewhere on them.
SIGNED COSPLAY PHOTO PRINTS
I've heard you (yes you!) might be a big fan of my cosplay. Have you ever wanted to own a print of me dressed as an andorian, also signed by ME? Well now you can! Not a Star Trek fan? I'm sorry to hear that! If you have another costume you like more than my andorian one I can arrange to send you a signed print of that, if possible. Either way each of these will be beautiful full color glossy prints with my very own signature on them.
Have you ever listened to one of my songs and thought "I really want to use that sound in my own production"? That may be possible with this reward! Except for the strings (which I use Kontakt 2 for) and the drums, the synth patches I use in my productions are made by me. If you have Native Instruments Massive or FM8 you can use them too and you will get them if you contribute the appropriate amount.
DRAGON CON BREAKFAST PARTY - Yes this is a real thing!
For you with a little more coin to spare - $250 will get you access to have breakfast with me and my entourage at Dragon Con 2014. You must be going to Dragon Con (either as a guest or attendee) to take advantage of this reward.
The rest of the rewards are pretty self explanatory but feel free to ask questions if you have them.
THANK YOU FOR READING AND HAVE A GREAT DAY.
Risks and challenges
I have a lot of experience in the studio and making music, and all of the tracks on the EP are partially or completely finished being written, they just need to be mixed and mastered and some need vocals. So I do not anticipate there being any challenges on my end. The only issue may be waiting the remix artists to send me their remixes, but in the end there will be at least 3 remixes.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
