About this project

About Antoine.

I am Antoine. an American nationally touring heavy metal drummer and avant-garde music composer from the San Francisco Bay Area in California, United States.

Formerly of the noteworthy bands, HADAN, Slough Feg and Black Goat.  I have been a professional musician since high school, and studied music since I was 10 years old.  I have toured regionally and nationally across the United States.  Played back to back years at SXSW in 2006 (feature artist on top of the performers page w/ photo) and 2007, as a touring drummer of the band Slough Feg.  I can play just about any instrument I can get my hands on and can play those instruments in just about any style of music I accompany or may potentially write.  I am what is known as a "music prodigy".

The Daunting Task of Avant-Garde Creation

These series of albums was a concept that started back in 2005.

Creating in bursts of inspiration while working at multiple nightclubs as a professional DJ and a professional touring drummer, was not getting the task done properly in any effective manner.  So I decided to take a break from all the constant chaos to create a clam environment to create some of my best work to date.

There have been some serious, "twists and turns" I must admit in my life after making the choice to take break from my old schedule.  But I know in the end - I've made all the right decisions.  And the series of recordings will benefit from those decisions - which was/is the original ultimate goal.  Throughout the first three releases in the series, I have funded this epic project on my own...until now!

The Series of Eight

Since this is a conceptual series project I have been working on since 2005.  I try not to give out too many details.  But for you to grasp the scope and sheer magnitude of what I am doing, watch this short video:

I Need Your Support to Complete the Project!

Your support will help me in funding the following:

- Studio time to Record In Full Surround Sound, Mix and Master.

- Payment to Voice Over Artists for their Contributions to the Project.

- Printing & Packaging of CDs & Vinyl Albums Completion of Album Art.

- Payment to CREATIVE visual artists who contributed to videos, photography and album art.

- Licensing Worldwide Distribution.

- Kickstarter Fees & Credit Card Processing.

 

The Possibilities Are Endless

The optimal vision is to have this release packaged as an art installation set up in various booked locations around the world.  With contributions from a hand picked selection of works from cutting edge visual artists. And multiple dates of live performances bundled during the installation dates at the venue(s).

Thank You!

Thank you for supporting my life's work, by supporting this project by contributing to the release.

Risks and challenges

Marketing is about timing and momentum. Failure to meet my Kickstarter goal risks the setback of incompletion and missed opportunities with a proper window to promote the album.

This project involves other artists and musicians who will have contributed their time and talents. Support of this project allows me to recognize their efforts and to support those who are able to make a living through their craft.

Funding this project alone has set me back financially. While most of the cost has been contributed by me, this final leg of the project needs your help! Your contribution enables me to avoid financial hardship and take advantage of marketing relationships that exist now that may not be available later.
