I'm passionate about mandolins and writing music. Opus Twelve is an ambitious project that I plan to complete within the next year. It will be a major step forward in my goal to write accessible music for modern mandolinists at a variety of skill levels. I will write and publish a collection of 12 (or more) pieces for mandolin; solos, duos, trios, one quartet, plus one epic work for mandolin orchestra. That's 12+ mandolin pieces; 36+ minutes of new music!
I'm most excited that this project will involve YOU. I could write a mountain of music, but it wouldn't matter unless you are part of it - as a listener or as a player. I'm counting on you to become my fan and collaborator. I'll be seeking your suggestions and feedback along the way, so you will be a part of the creative process and I will be able to write better music as a result.
Every piece in this opus is open for sponsorship by you or your group. If you sponsor a solo, quartet or orchestra piece, you will be given a window of opportunity to premiere the piece before I publish it.
Whether you'd like a new piece for your repertoire, you would just like to dedicate a new piece of music to someone special, or you want to be a modern patron of the arts - this is your chance!
Kickstarter is an ALL or NOTHING proposition. Your credit card will only be charged if I raise the project minimum of $3,456 which will be used to cover project expenses (recording, printing, etc.). Otherwise, I don't get funded and the project doesn't get done. Time is limited. Please share this with your friends, family, and anyone you know who values the arts, independent music, and mandolins!
Thanks for listening,
