I, Nathan Felix, am looking for support to fund my 1st symphony, The Curse the Cross & the Lion! a 6-movement orchestral adventure! Read more
This project was successfully funded on April 24, 2012.
About this project
I’m Nathan Felix
And I have a confession.
Yes, I do believe in LOVE at first...
8 years ago, in the most unexpected of ways, I fell in love with orchestral music, and every day since then I’ve immersed myself with all that is orchestral.
It’s been an 8-year journey of learning, listening and ultimately composing my first symphony, The Curse the Cross & the Lion! The Curse the Cross & the Lion is a 6-movement cinematic adventure with over 25 minutes of music written for a full symphony orchestra (80 players)!
To see it come to life I will need $7,000 to record an orchestra.
I quickly learned that writing a symphony is something I can do alone, but having it performed requires the help of over 100 people!
I’ve earned and saved $4,000 in 2011 & have already invested $1,500 of my personal funds. Last November I visited, scouted, and began working out logistics to record this beast in New York at SUNY Fredonia, and have surrounded the project with an amazing team.
- Erik Wofford (http://cacophonyrecorders.com/) is on board as producer/engineer (Black Angels, Octopus Project, Okkervil River)
- Andre Lousada (Prague Philharmonic Orchestra; SUNY) will conduct (www.andrelousada.com).
- Laurie Gallardo of KUT (Austin’s NPR affiliate) fame will serve as the voice.
- Emmy nominated videographer, David Schulte will document it! (www.davidschulte.com)
- Jean-Roux Bezuidenhout will photograph the process.
5 months to go & 4 years in the making, I stand here today in need of financial support that will help bring The Curse the Cross & the Lion to life!
I humbly ask for your generous pledges to raise $7,000. This $7,000 along with the $4,000 that I have raised/saved in 2011, will help me pay for the orchestra to perform and record The Curse the Cross & the Lion and produce it.
To reciprocate generosity, I have exclusive gifts you can get your hands and ears on!
