Lovely people, welcome to my kickstarter campaign! Over the past year I have been working on 60 minutes of dubby stories and I'm unbelievably happy to introduce you to my first full-length Pangani Album In The Moment.
As Pangani, I fuse psychedelic dub, storytelling, and live electronics to construct sonic adventures. This teaser contains 8 short excerpts of every album chapter.
In my music, Field-recordings and Sound-designed puzzle-pieces meet the "foleyboard”, a self-built percussive synthesizer. It uses a sound reactive wood board, on which all kind of objects, like seeds, sand or brushes are used to generate sounds, which are then manipulated to shape morphing sound sculptures. This setup provides the possibility to play in the moment and bring theatrical elements into my live shows.
The goal of this campaign is to make CD’s with handcrafted cases, posters, and a synæsthetic edition.
For the last step of production I need your support to make this project happen.
The CD case is made out of 100% biodegradable material without any plastic. The booklet is set behind the laser cut front cover and is visible through the cut out segments.
The tray is made out of cork, which will hold the CD in an alternative, yet secure environment. Track titles will be stamped by hand into the cover.
Limited DELUXE edition
This DELUXE edition of In the Moment is limited to 150 copies. All track titles, logos and writings are engraved into the case to roundup the story with the greatest possible detail.
In addition to the music visual art has been an important part of my creative process and I would like to share some of this work. I have developed a generative visual system to my live music, which is based on golden ratio functions. I set basic parameters for each track and the sounds I play influence the images produced. If you watched the video above, you would have seen some examples of this. During the process of programming the visuals, I selected still images and turned them into 2 posters designs. The A2 (42cm x 59,4cm) posters will be printed (offset) on environmentally friendly 170g/m² paper with colours, obtained from natural resources.
The synæsthetic edition adds another layer to the Pangani adventure by tickling another of your senses: smell
I believe that one's senses (sight, smell, temperature, pain, taste,... ) have a strong influence on the perception of music. In my Pangani in Ritual concerts, I have experimented with multiple speakers around the audience, ambient lights, and scent to include the whole space into the performance. For this purpose, I teamed up with a healer, who uses scents in her work and we created essential oil compositions for each track. We used high-quality essential oils by Young Living with "Therapeutic Grade" to compose the smells.
This edition is shipped in a custom designed wooden box. The lid is engraved with a special design and inside the box 8 small glass bottles containing essential oils are packed safely beside the CD.
Just imagine yourself relaxing comfortably while the music and scents take you on a journey.
This edition contains:
- Engraved wooden box
- 8 essential oil compositions
- Signed physical album

Risks and challenges
I can't see any real risks involved in this project.
The music is done, I have a working prototype of all packagings and there is an armada of wonderful people waiting to glue, cut, fold, roll, .. to transform my long waited for dream into reality.
