I'm making good headway on the mixing! Here's a sample rough mix of a few of the songs:
Leo Brouwer, the Cuban composer, wrote a set of 30 incredible etudes for classical guitar which I've recently recorded and will soon be releasing as "Impressions Of Brouwer, Vol. 1." I've also arranged 8 of them for a fusion group. These are being recorded this coming August. This campaign is to help cover the cost of paying the musicians who are joining me, hiring an assistant engineer, purchasing the licenses necessary to distribute the CDs, and the physical production of the CDs.
These arrangements fuse contemporary classical music with rock/fusion instrumentation and improvisation. Please see the video of our second rehearsal to get an idea of how the pieces are evolving.
This is a great chance to essentially preorder both CDs at a discounted price if you pledge $25!
My "real" goal, if you're curious, is to break $4000. That will allow me to pay the guys what they really deserve, print the first 100 discs, and hire an assistant engineer.
