After the success and feature of my totally self-produced first album, 'From Bach to Bond' across multiple national media outlets, my 2nd album, 'Sonic Waves', will be a 14-track album of water-themed classical music by composers Liszt, Debussy, Chopin, Schubert, Saint-Saëns, and Handel. The album will also feature arrangements of 3 traditional sea shanties, arranged in a virtuosic, classical style.
The £2,000 I plan to raise will be used to fund the recording, marketing, design, and production costs associated with releasing the CD. This figure is based closely on the costs of my first album, ‘From Bach to Bond’.
I cannot afford to raise the capital for this project myself due to costs of living; my rent and rates, so I would absolutely love to have you involved in the creation of my product, as I already have a strong background in delivering high quality, media-ready work.
Life as a solo pianist can be challenging, and somewhat isolated, which is yet another reason why I would sincerely appreciate your support and backing. It would mean the absolute world to me to have you involved in my journey.
I have a distribution deal in place with Naxos records, so the CD will be available both nationally and internationally.
Recording: studio hire, sound engineer hire, producer hire, piano tuning, mixing, and mastering.
Marketing: photographer, studio hire, concepts, post-production, and advertising.
Design: graphic design, artwork, and printing.
Production: CD duplication, any PRS, MCPS/PPL, or legal requirements, as well as the CD barcode.
Risks and challenges
I have very precisely planned, absolutely final deadlines for this project, which is due to the nature by which national media outlets will publicise, feature, and use the album.
My first album, 'From Bach to Bond' was delivered under similar circumstances, to great success.
