I've recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to make a beautifully packaged CD of my piano piece Aqua Madora.
The really cool thing about Kickstarter, and the reason I wanted to go this route with this project, is that the funding only happens if we meet the goal. There's no risk: "Every Kickstarter project must be fully funded before its time expires or no money changes hands."
This is a great thing, because it means that the project itself can actually happen fully as envisioned. When we're talking about the type of packaging Oscar and I want to make happen for this release, this is doubly important. I believe fully in the physical format. The experience of making a Cassette for The Tapeworm has further opened my eyes to the possibility of physical formats. With the embellished packaging we're planning for Aqua Madora we intend to capture a slice of the ritualistic performance experience in a little take-home package.
