Hello people of the world of bits and atoms! We present our new project with the intention that you take it as yours. Let's start!!
*WHAT WE DO *
With the third album we want to overcome some challenges, continue to experiment with this world of music so much loved by us and share it all with you. We remain committed to do it with you because we know that together we can do anything. Again, we're going to write with all you one of the lyrics via Twitter and have collaborative editing of the rest of the lyrics in a few weeks. Also we're trying this Verkami crowdfunding and insist with the idea of creation as a process going to the land of geysers to come back with some hot songs. In addition, we remain fetishists. We love the physical issues -not everything is volatile- but we are tired of the CDs. We want to try new formats and so we decided to publish the 3.0 on digitalK7 as the meeting point of the 90's nostalgia with the handy of digital players. But the 3.0 is not only the musical project. With Orxata, as you know, we did a few video clips but good. And this time we desire to do it well and a video clip is not enough for the case. We want to do a short film, something that goes beyond the usual music videos and the trip to Iceland fits so smooth with the concept. Finally we remind you that we will register the album under a Creative Commons license, so the work we do comes back to the community, you'll be able to copy it, sample it, etc ...
WHY € 8,000
The final budget will probably double that amount, but we don't believe you have to pay it all with crowdfunding. We've been saving the last few months and with your contributions it will be possible.
This is an estimate of the main costs of the project, once the process will be completed, we'll share the final budget as well:
+€ 8000 recording, mixing and mastering of the disc
+€ 2000 recording and editing the short film
+€ 5000 edition of the K7digital
+ € 2000 Concert hmmm ...
+ The final value of other rewards.
WHERE TO GET REWARDS?
The fastest way to get your physical rewards will be at the HHM... concert, you can also pick them up at the distribution points of Valencia and Barcelona that we will announce soon. If you can't come either Valencia or Barcelona, you can participate in the rewards BASIC SMOOTH PACK home delivery and we'll send you home.
WHAT CAN YOU GET?
The K7digital is an mp3 player with a cassette shape that also works in the traditional cassette players. It also has mini-jack output for headphones, miniUSB connection [to charge the battery and add new songs] and an SD card, with buttons to control playback. We'll make a limited edition of 500 units, so if you like it, go for it! A marvel of technology with the latest Orxata inside! "We have plenty of money! What do you want, dude?"
Videochats FROM ICELAND
Videochat from Iceland will be done once a day with Google+'s hangouts and you will be able to see how recording goes and to know if we're still alive or have died frozen.
T-SHIRT SPECIAL EDITION
The special edition T-shirt bearing the 3.0 redesigned logo with a special detail for verkamists. Later we'll ask your size.
TICKET TO THE MONUMENTALLY MYTHICAL AND HISTORICAL CONCERT
The Monumentally Mythical and Historical presentation concert of 3.0 [from now till the end of times, the ''HHM... concert''] is the only show we have scheduled for 2012. You know what I mean? The only way to attend will be participating in Verkami or with any tickets that may left over at the end of the campaign, so don't think it so much and make sure your attending to this great event!
*Please note that can only come into the club adults aor minors accompanied by adults.
Handmade and limited edition [50 units] silkscreen, numbered and signed.
ACT IN THE SHORT FILM
The short film will be shooted between Valencia and mainly Iceland. We'll announce the locations later on for you to choose where to participate, obviously we can not afford the travel expenses of each, you know.
PAELLA WITH ORXATA
Paella can be cooked at your place [big garden needed] or if you don't have any place to do it we can do it at our place. We'll bring you the ingredients, paella, the stereo and the frenzy, the more sugar the sweeter. If your place is outside the Valencian Country, you have to bring us some beds and travel expenses. This frozen meal is worthless!
3.0 Era begins now! During the coming months we'll be finishing the songs with your collaboration and at mid-October we'll travel to the land of ice and volcanoes to publish it before the end of the world!
Thanks family, let's make it happen!
