Goal Achieved! Let's Push.
HURRAY! Thanks to 18 backers, I|m has achieved the GOAL.
But just as we would not settle for HAPPENING - we aren't ready to settle for AMAZING either. We want to kick it up to PHENOMENAL!
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!
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:
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.
Spread the Art | Tribute | Transformation
INSTALLATION | music has the capability to be a WORLD WIDE event We are the Connection. We are the Web. We are the World. Share the Love. Call to Action!
spread the love
Perhaps the most amazing thing though is knowing and being known that you are part of INSTALLATION | music for all of posterity.
Every backer will have their name (or dedication) written in sharpie on the back of the mural.
Risks and challenges
