Kickstarter Min Goal Nailed!
Well, we did it -- reached the $2500 minimum* goal. This is big news. It means we can actually do the recording. The response was quicker and more generous than I expected.
Was also a big day musically. The producer took what Chris (guitar/arranger) and I developed earlier to another level (chop, adjust, rearrange, repeat). The drum sounds are amazing -- we start recording them for real tomorrow. Surprises for everyone ahead...
The art: after almost two months of work ALL the canvases have paint on them. Here are some pictures of the work in progress -- remember this thing is 15 ft. long.
* $2500 is the minimum goal because it's the least we could get by with and still put a record out. We hope to do much more (including cover materials costs for the painting, do a better than minimum job on things, cover travel costs and pay participants something!) If you want to help, visit (or revisit, or send a friend to) the Kickstarter page and make a pledge. We got the boat in the water now - help us take it all the way to the ocean! It's a pretty long trip from the source of the watershed to its destination, but it looks like it'll be a great trip!
