SORNE is releasing a NEW ALBUM! Pre-order "Ego Altar" on CD/Vinyl and be a part of this new chapter.

My new album, Ego Altar is near completion and I am excited to share it with you! Ego Altar is a continuation of House of Stone. If you are unfamiliar with my work, I invite to share in the experience by visiting the SORNE web site: SORNE.com

Seven years ago, I began writing and recording this music using found objects and simple instruments. Today, there are over eighty songs, thirteen of which were released as House of Stone. Ego Altar is a collection of songs sung by the five main characters from House of Stone: First Born, Second Sun, Little Brother, Black Sister and Blue Sister.

What began as a personal journey, continues to be embraced and affirmed by exceptional and talented people who have made it possible. This includes people like you. With that, I invite you to join me in making this new chapter of SORNE a reality.

The money raised here will be used to produce and package Ego Altar, and also used to produce a new collection of merchandise including House of Stone re-mastered on CD and vinyl, T-shirts, art prints, art books, etc. The budget will also allow me to properly promote Ego Altar to a larger audience of people. Your financial support of Ego Altar will be an opportunity for you to join me on the ground floor. This means exclusive content and physical goods which will not be available beyond this campaign.

Though the goal is $15,000, anything contributed over this amount will go toward producing the music, new shows, special exhibitions, and new works of art throughout the year. 

The following is a break-down of the plan:

- Ego Altar on CD and vinyl, beautifully packaged

- House of Stone re-mastered on CD and vinyl

- 30 page lyric book featuring a new body of visual art

- New line of collectables and merchandise

- New stage design and show

- Promotional budget

This year, I want to bring the experience to you so I invite you to be a part and discover the future with me. With those items that require shipment, all shipping costs are included. NO EXTRA CHARGES

Here are some examples of the art to be used in these packages:

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

I anticipate the release of Ego Altar to occur in April, 2013. Production of CD and vinyl albums are expected to occur that same month. In the event any delay should occur, you will be notified of the delay with an updated estimate of release and production via email.
All funds received will be professionally managed and devoted to the stated purposes of our project. While we do not anticipate any delays, all contributors should recognize that we cannot be responsible for unforeseen events or conditions that could possibly prevent us from completing our work. Nonetheless, be assured that SORNE will make every effort required to fulfill our objectives and supply you with the items promised. All offerings are subject to availability.
