Piedra y camino, our first album

It has taken some time, but...

We are finally releasing our very first album: Piedra y camino!

That’s why we have launched this crowdfunding campaign where you can participate by being our patron. With your help this can be possible.

Our project

Piedra y camino is a selection of 11 songs that are very special for us and that we are very excited to share with all of you. We have arranged each of them in our own style, exploring the different colours that our voices and instruments are capable of creating. It is also recorded as an acoustic session, so that when you listen you can feel as if you were in one of our live concerts.

The bringing to life of this album has been a slow and detailed process that has taken around two years.

One of the extraordinary parts of our project is its visual element. We have had the immense pleasure to be able to collaborate with the artist Paloma Ferrer Fornes throughout the entire creative process. Music and illustration has been growing simultaneously. That is why for each of our songs you will find a specially-conceived illustration.

The visual component

The unique graphic illustrations are conceived as a medium to showcase the technique of silk-screen printing.

From the 11 musical tracks, 11 figurative illustrations have been created, evoking the natural linear sketch style. The prints make sense both individually and as a series, and both inspire and draw inspiration from the music.

In each illustration you will notice two different coloured inks, representing two different elements related to the poetical meaning of each song. The emerald green ink is common to all of the illustrations while the other one varies between red, yellow and blue.

From these illustrations, the artist will handcraft unique prints which will consist of one limited edition of 30 samples of the complete series, and 250 copies of the single prints. Each print will be stamped on a squared format 21x21 cm, cream-coloured Fabriano Unica paper 250 gr/m².

After a decade-long musical collaboration and friendship (that goes back to our days of singing together in the children’s choir), in 2016 we decided to make our duo official. This is how Silento was created, as a free space for our mutual musical creativity.

From then onward, with one foot in Berlin and the other in Valencia, we have presented our music on many different stages. From uniting our songs with a visual artist in a live-painting to performing alongside flamenco dance, we have had the great fortune of collaborating with great artists from different disciplines.

Rewards

By helping us, you will be able to choose between different rewards:

We will send you a download link so that you can be the first to listen to our album.

Your name will appear as a part of our CD box design as well as on social networks (only if you wish to).

The classic pack: our CD wrapped in a unique design by our artist Paloma Ferrer Fornes, including a detailed booklet with all the illustrations and original lyrics of the songs.

A unique silk-screen print in two inks with one of the eleven illustrations, one for each song in the album. Each print is a unique graphic piece of art, conceived and printed by hand by our artist.

Our idea is as follows: once you receive your early-bird digital download, we will give you a couple of days to immerse yourself in our world, and select your favourite print. You will then receive the chosen one together with the rest of your rewards.

1 hour lesson per Skype with one of us. Date to be determined.

Limited edition of only 30 available items exclusively for our patrons. This contains the eleven prints of the eleven songs from the album as well as one special print which identifies the collection number, contains the autograph of the artist, and shows its uniqueness. This edition is presented in a special box created to compliment it. It also includes a dedicated note specially written for you.

We record a video especially for you with our own version of any song that you like. It can be dedicated to you or to whomever you prefer (it can be a great birthday present). You can be as creative as you like with your choice ;)

We perform in your house or any venue that you choose. 75 minutes of our music in an intimate acoustic setting (20-30 people). You will be able to listen to our new album very closely and also choose any song that you would love to hear. Transport costs are not included, date to be determined.

How you will receive the rewards

For residents of our cities, Valencia and Berlin, we would like to present the rewards to you in person at one of our concerts or album-related events. This way we can thank you individually for your collaboration and dedicate the album to you.

To residents of Germany and Spain who are not able to attend our upcoming events we offer the option of receiving our rewards per post. There are two options: normal and certified post.

There are some rewards which will only be able to be sent by certified post because they are delicate and/or expensive. For international patrons outside these two countries, we ask you to please get in contact through our email (silentoduo@gmail.com) because international deliveries may vary.

How your contributions will help us

  • Recording, post production and manufacturing of the album.

  • Digital distribution.

  • Copyrights.

  • Graphic design of the CD and its illustrations, the acquiring of material for the handcrafted silk-screen printing as well as for the limited edition for patrons.

  • Manufacturing of T-Shirts and tote bags.
