Breakfast Time

Good morning, noon, or evening, 

Welcome to Breakfast Time. Breakfast time can be anytime!

Below is a Breakfast Time track entitled "Morning." Take a listen!

This world has experienced much heartache and affliction, both in many people's day to day experience and in the darker parts of the grandiose story of human existence. We need to seek peace in the midst of chaos. We need to seek renewal and revival in the midst of destruction. 

Breakfast Time is more than just wonderful breakfast items that we all enjoy. It is a time that happens every morning when the sun comes up again. A new day arises, and feelings of renewal sing into your windows with the morning light. The songs I write for Breakfast Time are about waking up to a new day and refreshing ourselves with God's creation. It's about reviving ourselves not just with good food and drink, but with the peace of Christ, which surpasses all understanding.  

So why do I need a Kickstarter? 

Breakfast Time will be performing live at SECCA on Friday, November 11th at 7:30pm! (reception will follow)

This concert is FREE to the public! 

The reason I need a Kickstarter is to get the necessary equipment to make this concert sound its best! By purchasing these items I will be able to effectively have more concerts in the future. 

Breakfast Time has opened new doors for me creatively. I have been integrating electronic sounds with my solo piano works and songs. It has been exhilarating, and I feel like I am just touching the tip of the egg of what I can do. 

Below is a list of the items I need to purchase.

Instead of trying to explain what each of these items do, I decided to give you an analogy with breakfast food!! Watch these videos below:

Amy Badgett: $250

 

Amy is a talented photographer here in Winston-Salem. When I saw her work I knew she would be the perfect person to hire to take Breakfast Time pictures for me. She shot the picture for this Kickstarter, which I can use for many upcoming concerts. I am looking forward to supporting her art through this Kickstarter.  

Miscellaneous wires and chords: $100

Kickstarter fees: $120

Extra support is always good:

Risks and challenges

The music of Breakfast Time involves a lot of computer technology. Having the right equipment is essential to making the music sound its best. It's a nightmare trying to figure out what piece of equipment I should buy. There are so many options for the same thing. It is a tough challenge to figure out which device will help my music best.
