VARIATION PROJECT LETS YOU BE INVOLVED IN THE PROCCESS OF COMPOSING NEW MUSIC

WHAT IS VARIATION PROJECT?

We are taking the theme, in this case a canon(aria) that J. S Bach provided us (1741, nine years before his death) and commissioning new variations from living composers to add to an exciting variations that Bach completed. Then I will record all of the variations and we will have very unique cd that will bring a new chapter to his Goldberg Variations

  • Recording cost including rental space 2100$
  • Composers fee 5000$ (20 variations)
  • Performer fee 2500$
  • Sound engineer and post production cost 2500$
  • Cd design (graphics) 1000$
  • CD publishing 89$
  • total: 13,189
  • kickstarter fees 5%

Total : 14,134 USD

Every Additional 1000$ will allow to commission 4 more variations.

For the Ultimate 60 Variations Album we will need a total of 16,634$

Bach was a genius and he loved puzzles, one of the most unique puzzle was a canon, where you write a tune that can be played backwards, inverted delayed and so on. Bach was the god in his time in the society in Leipzig, he was the MAGICIAN.

 

 If you look at this painting which was painted as a present to him joining this elite club, in his hand is this famous canon he wrote.

So for you fans of Bach, please pledge to bring more variations to live.

The more pledges we collect, the more variations we will have. 

So let's inspire each other and your word of mouth will give birth to those new variations!!

Risks and challenges

Reaching 60 variations Level will be challenging! so please help us spread the word and help us achieve this number. The final Album will be ready by may 2018. Thank you for your support and your interest in Bach Variations
