What's the plan?
Sinfinis has had the ability to write, record, and produce our own music for a long time, so why do we need your help to get it mastered? Well, it's because mastering is a process that takes a specifically trained mastering engineer, and because it also requires access to expensive equipment that we simply don't have.
"But if I bankroll this process, what difference does it make to me, the listener?"
Mastering is a subtle (but critical) step in musical creation. The easiest way to describe it would be as follows: it makes the track sound, "professional." Mastering basically takes a song from sounding, "pretty good," to sounding, "pretty awesome." I'll spare you the technical jargon, but it's an important process, and we want you to have the best possible version of our music. We're the painters, in a sense, and we're getting a trained professional to frame our painting.
Of course! With the money raised from this Kickstarter, we'll also be able to have the album reach wide distribution, releasing on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Rhapsody, and more!
Risks and challenges
Assuming we meet our funding requirement, the complications that may arise are few and far between. The biggest part of our involvement in the new album is the recording process, which we control 100%. It's the mastering and distribution that we have to pay other people for, and those processes are fairly surefire, once funded.
One thing we can say for sure, though, is that the album WILL be completed. The only thing that could stop its completion after being funded is an untimely death, and even THAT may not stop it, as there's two of us ;)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
