About the Author
My name is Marina and I am 34 years old. It was eight years old when my mother suggested me that I learn music and since then has accompanied me all my life. For me it was a vehicle to express my emotions and communicate to people around me. I played guitar in groups, sung in choirs, played the gralla by castellers and currently play electric bass in a group.
Throughout these years I have written and composed, accompanied only by my guitar, songs that have helped me to express feelings and experiences at certain times in my life. To me they have great sentimental value. The idea of giving life and a physical body has been present for years and now I have decided to make it a reality. I have chosen the eight songs I consider most important, to be recorded in chronological order on one disc.
With your contributions, this project will become reality. I wish that soon you'll have the disc in your hands!!
The disc won't count only with my voice and the sound of my guitar. To grow, wealth and give personality to each song, I convened a group of nine friends and musicians, vocal or instrumentalists, I have been privileged to encounter along the way:
Nico Canet (edition), Gonya (guitar), Mario Bueno (piano), Ana Castellà (flute), Emma Ribas (vocals), Rubén Pacual (voice), Gerard Vidal (voice), Sonja (voice) and Dani Diaz (voice).
In recent months, the good work of Nico, we have recorded in his studio in Mataro Tinyroom the demos of the songs.
My compositions are the basis on which we will add more voices and instruments. The whole team of musicians we will find the 23 to 26 July in the Masia Dolçamar Sant Iscle de Vallalta, surrounded by the natural park of Montnegre and El Corredor, to make the recording.
We will enable an exterior construction on the home as a recording studio . The staff of the farmhouse has experience in similar events and they reserve the space for us exclusively. We can adapt the space to our liking and have a free schedule for our activities.
The most important thing is the climate of creativity to be created between the musicians during coexistence and music will emerge spontaneously together.
We will do photographic and video recording of the event as a “making-of", with the cooperation of Sergi Molina (video) and Queralt Aloy (photo), which also form part of the rewards that you can get as a patron of the project. Among the rewards we will also make the proposal to attend one of the days of the recording event!
This project has no profit, no hope for fame or convert the music in my profession. The only goal is to share my music with all those who believe in it. Make it grow as much as we can and enjoy together.
What will allocate your contributions
The project budget includes accommodation and meals of musicians during the recording in Dolçamar, the costs of editing, mastering and printing physical copies of the album and delivery of rewards to all you who have supported us as patrons.
Foresee that at the end of September I'll have the physical disk and I'll can arrange a meeting to celebrate the birth of the disc and start delivering the rewards (links for digital download, physical disks, photos, manuscripts and concerts).
