  'TRANSITION" is traditional Tibetan Buddhist prayers and mantras, mixed with modern electronic music production, specifically intended to support beings through the time of dying.  

 For 1,000's of years, the unbroken Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, has recognized the importance of the moment of death.   A pivotal doorway, that can bring inconceivable benefit to the deathless, eternal, aspect of consciousness. 

 The tracks are beautiful, peaceful, inspiring, illuminating.  Also supportive for the 'transitions' we all go through within this lifetime.   Good for meditation, yoga, babies, lullabies, everyone... and even played on repeat, emanating positive energy, like a prayer wheel spinning sound.      

      Within these uncertain times, it is said, is also the potential for great spiritual awakening.  Through the medium of music, an ancient technology of vibrational medicine, we can directly influence consciousness in positive ways.  Through the vastness of the world wide web, we have a miraculous ability, to infinitely replicate these sounds, and reach innumerable beings.

  Please support this project, by pre-ordering the CD, now.  Your contribution will expedite and ease the completion of the album.  Also the more funding received, the larger the scale this work can be promoted and distributed.  Your donations will also underwrite the show and tour, which has such great potential to extend out in the world , in a vast and positive way.

Thank you.

BUDGET:

Mastering    $500.+

Printing      $2,000. 

 If i was able to pay everyone $500 per track, @ 15 tracks =  $7500. 

 It is so kind everyone did this for love,  but most artists still need to pay the bills.  Working for money slows down the time we can work on art we believe in.  Some of the producers could really use some funds, to get the last tracks done.   i would love to be able pay the people who need it, to get things finished.

Promotion, Distribution, Website Upgrade, EPK.   All of this takes time.  If i could hire one skilled, great worker. 

 @ $20 an hour, 40 hr. week, 1 week = $800.

 1 month =  $3,200. 

3 months, 1 full time helper = $ 9,600. 

Show and Tour:  I am planning a big CD release party for Sept. in S.F.  (TBA)  I am designing a whole show, that can then travel.  This  show is going to take all the experience I have from doing shows, to the next level. 

Costumes     $1,000+

Sound, Lights, Stage.  $$$

   So, as you can see, I could double the $11,111 budget.  But, the $11,111, would be a great help !!!!!   It would be wonderful to over fund this project.  The more money I have to work with, the faster and easier everything goes. Thank you so much, for your support, of the work I am doing.

Risks and challenges

I feel a great urgency to release these, "prayers for the dying", out into the world. From the beginning, this was the album I wished to make.
The challenges: as everyone has been working for the love of this project, it is harder to get things done. My personal limitations are with technology. I could use a little help with the tech aspects of things. But this is easily something a savvy computer genius could handle.
With a little finical support, I see no reason that this cannot be completed swiftly and easily. Now is the time!!!
