Rewards for patrons abroad
We need your help to cover the edit, mixing, mastering, design and copying expenses. There are a lot of rewards in exchange, concert tickets, scores of the music or the album itself (physical and/or digital).
Right now, the album is in the process of mixing and mastering so, we think we will have it by the end of March/beginning of April. It should be easy to start sending the rewards by then.
