About this project

$3,555

Culminating our most ambitious season to date, in the summer of 2012 Wet Ink recorded our second album - Relay. To be released on Carrier Records in the fall, the album will feature works by Eric Wubbels, Kate Soper, Rick Burkhardt, George Lewis, Alex Mincek and Sam Pluta. We are now in the mixing stage for this project and things sound amazing.

In order to record the album, Wet Ink was awarded a one week recording grant at EMPAC, the outstanding experimental music facility in Troy, New York. This is a significant award with a monetary value totaling around $15,000. Yet, this still does not cover the cost of producing a new disc. Musician's fees and CD replication will cost an additional $6,000, and for this we are looking for your help.

Please help Wet Ink reach our goal of raising $2,500 to help defer the cost of releasing our new album.  Everyone who donates over $15 will receive a disc when it is released. If you are able to donate more, there are more exciting rewards available.

Thank you for your support!
