Just in time for the relaxing tones of the summer, the dissonant chords to make you ponder the routine consonance in your life.
Normal, Basic, Ordinary...
Words not in my vocabulary. I have struggled with finding my musical voice for many years, constantly in the practice room, learning new methods and battling with myself. The ideas forged into my brain from classical and jazz have shaped who I am, but have yet to define me. My compositions feel the same way.
I am not about to create an album of 12 bar blues and standard AABA formats. I am going to start a revolution...
A sound experience...
Compositions from my days of Meditation have influenced me to dig deeper. To find those barriers and break them. This isn't just about the music. It is about art. It's about creating something more then just an audio track. It's about taking what people have told me not to do and shoving it in their faces. It's about audacity.
What are you contributing to?
The fees for musicians to play their parts. Fees for recording studios or equipment. Fees for creating a piece of art.
There will be videos posted on YouTube of the creation of the album that all backers will be able to watch. You can see the creation in action. The unsuccessful read throughs with edits. The final cuts and the occasional blooper!
Support the independent artist movement. Support live music and living music! Support the new artists by contributing to Truculently Audacious.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
I have come back from the wreck of my previous tenure in New York to make myself a musician. A true musician who fights to stay where they love no matter what. I have over come the ideals that other people hold against my music. I know there will be more, but I have faced it before, and I will gladly face it again. Finding musicians may be difficult when you are new in the city, but I have faith in my fellow musical friends that we can collaborate and create something beautiful and ugly.
