FORMAT

You will find a CD with all the songs we wrote and composed along the journey. You will come across different music styles depending on the places we visited and the imprint their culture left on us. It will be recorded with the help of twenty musicians-collaborators.

In order to interact, you are given a MAP (the size of a poster) that will also be used as the CD case. Thus you can follow the route and listen to the songs at the same time. You will also find the beaches and towns we visited and the mountain summits we climbed highlighted on the map.
Each of these places will be shown together with a QR code that will provide further info. QR codes can be scanned via mobile phone. You will see our daily life there, you can read our travel journal together with some juicy anecdotes, photos and videos.

ABOUT THE REWARDS

Rewards will be given to everyone's taste, fitting different budgets; whether you go for the digital version of the project or maybe you want to enjoy a private concert that serve as a first-hand account of our adventure. We will hand in the rewards the day of the presentation of the project (see calendar).

We highly recommend you choose the Photo Album since you'll get, a CD-MAP, the digital version, your name will appear in the supporters' section and you will get a selected choice of 150 of the best photos from the trip.

If you think 30€ is too much but you've got some friends you'd like to share it with, go for the 4-people pack : 15€ each x4 = 60 euros. With this option, the photo album will be included as well.
The minimum charge reward is 8€. It includes a digital download of the project and you will also appear in the supporters' list, of course.
The reward called "Postcard" is a limited edition of the postcards we bought during our trip. You will get them with our personal dedication. Mind you, they'll sell out soon!
If you're a bit of a joker, the photoshop pack is for you. Great for confusing and misleading your friends. How? well, because you'll also be part of the show. All you have to do is send us some photos and you'll be part of the adventure.
There's even a reward for those of a refined palate. You'll enjoy an exotic dinner for 2 served with traditional dishes from the trip together with a handful of anecdotes to go with it.
Last but not least, our final reward will be a private concert. We will come as a duet to a private venue of your choice, your place, your bedroom or maybe as a private "fiesta" on your roof terrace where you can invite friends and neighbours.

(* we cannot guarantee any physical rewards to be received outside Catalonia. Any further queries, contact us at: fotemelcram@gmail.com)

WHO ARE WE?

Aleix and Pol. Soul mates, born in the heart of Catalonia. Devoted music lovers. It took us four days to purchase a new guitar as soon as we landed in Cuba. There was no way we were gonna be on this trip without a guitar. We had to start making songs.
Aleix is a mechanical and robotic engineer and he also teaches how to play the guitar. He has already taught over 100 students so far. Aleix started Faust, a rock-and-roll band together with Pol and 2 other musicians in 2014. He was the lead guitarist. He also took part in the production and recording of the CD "El principio de los Tiempos Modernos" together with songwriter E. Ambert Aleix was the pianist and guitar player in that production.
Pol is an audiovisual communicator. He started playing the saxophone, the drums and later the guitar. He was the singer, guitar player and composer for Faust. He also started a duet called P... de P..., where music and humour are combined. He is a songwriter.
