Irrationalities: Petros Klampanis' 4th album

$21,383

PETROS:

I am a bassist, composer and producer, living between NYC and Athens, GR. I have already released 3 albums (Contextual/2011, Minor Dispute/2015 & Chroma/2017) which have received enthusiastic reviews internationally. I have been fortunate enough to collaborate with amazing musicians who inspire me and keep me wanting to be creative. My music has been presented live all over Europe, the Americas and recently Japan. For more info please visit: petrosklampanis.com.  

'Irrationalities' will be my 4th album. 

'Irrationalities' is inspired by the courage one must have, in order to constantly reinvent themselves. It is dedicated to people who are not afraid to ask difficult questions and are willing to embrace the irrational element.

THE GOAL:


     'Irrationalities' is scheduled for release in September 2019 in physical (on vinyl and CD) and digital (Spotify, Apple Music etc.) formats. Live performance music videos and an animated video clip, will be released during the months of September and October. We are also working on setting up tours for 2019-'20 (US, Canada, South America, Central Europe, Russia, Japan etc)  to present 'Irrationalities'. 





THE MUSIC:

After the release of two albums that feature bigger ensembles (strings plus jazz 4tet and 5tet), I felt the need to discover the nuances of sound and expression that a piano trio offers. My partners on this creative endeavor, Kristjan Randalu and Bodek Janke, made this decision very easy. Both of them are extraordinary musicians and human beings; both sensitive and fiery. The album consists of 7 tunes: 5 originals and 2 covers.

THE TEAM:

Petros Klampanis trio (aka "PKtrio") is a formation that combines the jazz sound, with the world and classical music traditions. Kristjan Randalu is considered as one of the most compelling pianists of his generation. Bodek Janke is described as 'a master of many dialects', as he combines jazz with world music traditions. 

Mixing engineer genius James Farber, mixed the sound of 'Irrationalities' and acclaimed musician and engineer Nate Wood, did the mastering. 

'Irrationalities' is an interdisciplinary project that involves visual artists. Artiste Katerina Karali, is the graphic designer and art director of the project. Antonis Kitsikis, a promising young cinematographer, will direct the music videos. Lastly, photographs taken by the wonderful Alina Lefa, will be included in the 'Irrationalities' booklet and promotional campaigns.

Risks and challenges

Producing an album from scratch, is a challenging task which demands hard work, persistence, team spirit and of course creativity on many levels. The people that have come together to produce "Irrationalities" are extraordinarily talented individuals.

Having the funds to complete a project is a common obstacle in the music industry. In the case of "Irrationalities" we guarantee that the album and music videos will be made when the project funds reach $20,000.

The scheduled release of the album is September/October 2019. Funds received over and above $20,000 will allow the production to have extra features, cover promotion costs as well as travel costs for the group's tour around the world.
