About this project
Over the last few years I have been crafting a lot of music under my solo project, Subaqueous. Now, I’ve taken my music and opened it up to a wider community of musicians with a new remix album. This album is about synthesizing my work and style of music with other musicians’ own sonic imprint. What evolves from this is a new collaboration, which takes us as producers and audience into uncharted territory.
Here is a preview mix of the album. Featuring eO, Caulli, and Jack O' Lantern.
Subaqueous Remix album will include remixes from;Theta Rhythms, Kalpataru Tree, Mas, Nssu, Futexture, eO, Cualli, and over 12 more artist.
This remix album isn’t just about releasing a few produced tracks. It’s about releasing the information on how I made a lot of my music. I want to share with my community, fellow musicians, and friends the knowledge I have acquired along the way.
This Kickstarter is to bring the Subaqueous Splash Drive into reality. The Splash Drive is an 8 gig custom usb stick. It is full of my music, remix packs, samples and more.
The USB Splash Drive has a lot of music, unreleased tunes, and personal videos of me. This makes is an amazing insight and container of my music for any fan. For producers I have even more added bonuses on the USB Drive. More info on the drive below as well as a walk through video.
Eco Friendly Custom Bamboo 8gb USB Drive: Drive will be loaded with music and more. USB Drive is also re writable.
Full Discography in MP3 and FLAC: New Album, 2 older albums, Remixes, Unreleased music, and 4 EPs.
Videos By Subaqueous: There will be videos on the drive from me, subaqueous describing my artistic process, how I make music, and other personal insights.
Ableton Packs (for live 8 and 9): Includes Sacred Chimes, World Fusion Drums, Sub (aq) Basses and Kicks, and more. View the PDF's for in-depth descriptions:
