ENGLISH: My name is Marco Cappelli. I am an Italian musician based in Brooklyn, NY.  I am launching this crowd funding campaign to support my week long residency next September 8th-13th at The Stone, a worldwide famous avant-garde music venue located in Manhattan, NYC.

The Stone, directed by John Zorn - a major and charismatic figure in the international music scene - features some of the most relevant names in the field of experimental, contemporary and jazz music. Each musician in residence at The Stone books two concerts every night for the week long residency, performing original music.

For my September residency I invited many friends, both from the US and from Italy,  to perform with me, including: actors Andrea Renzi and John Turturro, Italian Surf Academy with special guest Mauro Pagani; Umberto Petrin and James Ilgenfritz; Jim Pugliese's Phase III; Noha and Rosalie Kaplan with Swiss drummer Marco Käppeli (my Swiss alter-ego!); Dedalo Guitar Quartet with special guest Elliott Sharp; Nublast with Shoko Nagai, Stomu Takeishi and drummer JT Lewis; IDR - Italian Doc Remix with special guest DJ Logic and singer Francesco Pellegrino; Adam Rudolph with the Organic Guitar Orchestra; The whole Ensemble Dissonanzen from Naples; Andrea Pennisi (aka VJ Lapsus) from Catania, artists Gaetano Costa and Philippe Berson from Palermo… and many more. Please see the detailed program at the following link:

http://thestonenyc.com/calendar.php?month=3                  

The Stone has no public or private funding, but its policy is to give 100 % of the door receipts to the artists. So it is very important to fill up the venue every night. This crowd funding campaign will help to:

1) Support the publicity expenses needed in order to fill the space each night.

2) Produce a live recording of the concerts for the release of a CD and a DVD.

3) Produce a documentary about the residency (if we raise enough money).

All contributors will receive their rewards according to the list on the side.

 PLEASE HELP US TO TURN THIS WEEK INTO AN EVENT!

Thank you.

ITALIAN: Mi chiamo Marco Cappelli, sono un musicista di Napoli trapiantato da diversi anni a Brooklyn. Avvio questo crowd funding per sostenere la mia settimana di residenza che si terra` dall’ 8 al 13 Settembre 2015 a The Stone, uno spazio dedicato alla musica d’avanguardia famoso in tutto il mondo e situato  a New York nel lower east side di Manhattan.

The Stone – artisticamente diretto da John Zorn, figura carismatica di primo piano nel panorama musicale internazionale - e` una sorta di “tempio” dell’ avanguardia musicale newyorkese, con una programmazione densa di nomi prestigiosi che sfuggono ad ogni etichetta: musica sperimentale, jazz, contemporanea … e tanto altro. Ogni musicista in“residenza” ha l’onore di raccontare la sua storia musicale con 2 concerti per serata per una settimana.

Per questo ho invitato a suonare molti amici, sia dall’Italia che dagli USA, tra cui gli attori Andrea Renzi e John Turturro, Italian Surf Academy con ospite Mauro Pagani; Umberto Petrin e James Ilgenfritz; Jim Pugliese's Phase III; Noha e Rosalie Kaplan con il batterista Svizzero Marco Käppeli (il mio alter-ego Szvizzero!); Dedalo Guitar Quartet con ospite Elliott Sharp; Nublast con Shoko Nagai, Stomu Takeishi e il batterista JT Lewis; IDR - Italian Doc Remix con ospiti DJ Logic ed il cantante Francesco Pellegrino; Adam Rudolph con la Organic Guitar Orchestra; L’ Ensemble Dissonanzen da Napoli; Andrea Pennisi (aka VJ Lapsus) da Catania e gli artisti Gaetano Costa e Philippe Berson da Palermo… piu` molti altri che potrete leggere nel programma al seguente link:

http://thestonenyc.com/calendar.php?month=3      

The Stone non è sostenuto da alcun finanziamento pubblico o privato, e garantisce ai musicisti il 100% dell’incasso della serata: per questo è necessaria una buona pubblicità perchè si abbia il tutto esaurito ogni sera.  Il ricavato di questo crowd funding servirà dunque a:

1) Coprire le spese di pubblicità per riempire la sala ogni sera

2) Produrre un Cd e un Dvd con il meglio di quanto avverrà dal vivo

3) Produrre un documentario (se riusciamo a raccogliere I fondi necessari).

I nostri sostenitori riceveranno la propria ricompensa secondo la lista di “rewards” qui al lato.

Grazie a tutti.

Risks and challenges

ENGLISH:
Our goal is to raise at least $6500, which is the minimum budget in order to cover all the expenses of production and shipping of a live cd+dvd, plus to have a budget to afford a good publicity for the whole event: our calculation has been made without considering a final luxury product, but a nice package of high sounding quality. This is what we will deliver whatever obstacle we can find on our way.
But we really hope to go over the amount of $6500! In which fortunate case, we can spend more money on the cd/dvd packaging and in all the technical passages needed to have a luxury final product to send to our crowd funding's bakers. Moreover, with a larger budget we could produce a documentary on the week and all the artists involved. An itemized list about how we will spend the raised money will be disclosed to all contributors both at the end of the crowd funding campaign as well at the end of the project.
Thank you all for your support!

ITALIAN:
il nostro obbiettivo e` di raccogliere almeno $6500: tale abbiamo calcolato essere il budget minimo per la copertura delle spese di produzione e spedizione di un cd+dvd registrato dal vivo, piu` la copertura delle spese di pubblicita` dell’intero evento. Il nostro calcolo e` stato fatto senza contare di arrivare ad un prodotto di lusso, ma ad una confezione elegante di alta qualita` sonora. Questo e` quanto potremo assicurare qualunque ostacolo dovessimo trovare sulla nostra strada.
Ma in realta` noi speriamo di raccogliere una cifra superiore a $6500! In questo caso fortunato, saremmo in grado di investire di piu` sull’eleganza del prodotto da inviare ai nostril sostenitori. Inoltre, con un maggiore budget a disposizione saremmo in grado di produrre un documentario sull’intera settimana e sugli artisti coinvolti. Una dettagliata lista di spese sara` resa pubblica ai nostri sostenitori sia dopo la conclusione del crowd funding che alla fine del progetto: in tal modo potrete seguire tutte le fasi di questa avventura. Grazie per il vostro supporto!
