 Goal Achieved!  Let's Push. 

HURRAY!  Thanks to 18 backers, I|m has achieved the GOAL.

We are AIMING to raise another $333 by June 13!  To do that, we have lowered the level of some of the rewards (t-shirts are only $88 now!) and added a once in a lifetime opportunity to get AmarA's masterwork, the painting that started INSTALLATION|music, & will sit over the Altar of Music at the INSTALLATION: TRIBUTE | Bowie!  

GOAL ACHIEVED!

About INSTALLATION | music

August 3 - 12 at the Bundy 129main Gallery, musicians will play & perform through 10 sessions with performance painter AmarA. They will create an interactive, collaborative, living installation transmitted in LIVE STREAM to the world.

 

Our website is now LIVE at INSTALLATI0Nmusic.com

Thanks to the 18 backers who pledged to make our goal here on Kickstarter, a grant (from the Broome County Arts Council's United Cultural Fund which is covering the musicians) and our sponsors (Tri-Cities Opera, The Bundy Museum of History & Art, i am horror,  Sound Concepts, IATSE Local #54, private individuals like you on Patreon who are making the mural & basic live stream happen)  INSTALLATION | music IS a for-sure happening thing!

 So what's this kickstarter for?

This campaign is to raise the funds to take it from "happening" to "amazing".  

This project began when David Bowie died, with a sketch that became a painting that merged with another idea and became a collaboration of musicians, performers, etc....  It was shocking, Bowie’s death, unexpected, but not for him. What he gave us in his death was Blackstar: Having faced death and gone through it with his art, art reflecting life & death. All of us face death: The death of others and our own mortality, but that which we create carries on - inspiring others, art begetting art, art changing the world - one song, one painting, one poem at a time.     We honor that, we create with conscious intent, & we give tribute. 

Right now, INSTALLATION | music is going to be good.  We have an spectacular line up:

Celestial Blue Music   *   g.nome & the soulless minions of orthodoxy  *  John Wolfson  *   Tri-Cities Opera  *   Flying Old Crows

AmarA will be the continuity, building with paint session by session on murals - each made of many smaller canvases (one of which can be yours - see rewards!)  jk will be bringing it you in LIVE-STREAM from the heart of the Twilight Zone.

We want to make it SPECTACULAR | Multi-Camera-Live-Streamed | BREATHTAKING | details.costumes.concepts.realized | GLORIOUS 

 

So, how 'bout those rewards?

They look pretty cool, don't they?   Between you and me, the t-shirts are shaping up to be grand and the Masked Ball Reveal is going to be one for the memoirs.  And, of course, there is only 1 TRIBUTE | Bowie painting an that is up for someone to grab.
