We are finishing the new album from Opal, 17, a project that includes different disciplines such as music, dance and image.
All the songs are recorded, we have the photos with the whole image, we have the new website, we even recorded a video clip and we have assembled a multidisciplinary show with all the work ... But we need the money to release it.
With a touch of magic and mystery, an exciting journey inward, we believe that 17 is the most mature and with more essence so far, we have put on it much effort and enthusiasm. The disc means, therefore, a clear step forward.
Can you help us?
I debuted my solitarie career with my first work "*Sueños*" (*Dreams*, 2004) and published my second album "*Pienso distinto*" (*I think differently*, 2009) in the U.S., the two were self-funded. I believe in self-management, because it allows me to continue expressing myself with independence and artistic freedom.
I think crowdfunding is a beautiful and useful tool, which allows people to participate actively in the project and enable it to become a reality. Somehow it is also yours.
HOW WILL BE 17
It have been two years of intense search, creation, composition, rehearsals, collaborations, photo shoots, video recording, recording the songs ... And '**17**' has finally taken shape , a conceptual work that draws on different disciplines (music, picture, dance, video) and moves in two directions: towards the future, using new sounds and towards the past, searching through the symphonic rock textures.
17 is magic, dream, love, frustration, hope, illusion, pain ... A place to experience the emotions, where one can ask questions and seek answers, a place to be oneself.
Composed of 12 songs, I have the collaboration of different artists like: Vincent Roca (coauthor and artistic producer), Valérie Catalá Pilato, Ramón Jiménez, Quico Tretze, Mònica Samit and Yolanda Benages.
Thanks to this cultural and artistic exchange, 17 has been growing and getting rich, finding its own language.
The pre-premiere of the show with new songs was held on June 29, 2012 within the program of the Festival "30Nits" in Sabadell, very well received by the public and critics.
I sincerely believe that is the best I've done so far.
WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO WITH THE MONEY?
As many of you know, the cost to record and release an album far exceeds the amount we ask. So far and with much effort, we were able to largely finance it: recording studio, mixing, photo shoots, props, website, video ... which is an extremely high cost. But we no longer can finance the last step, which is the physical CD publishing, the materialization of the work, the step forward.
The 2200 euros will go entirely to pay the mastering and CD manufacturing and distribution.
If luckily we exceed this amount we will use the remaining money to promote the album (posters, online advertising, media inserts, etc..)
We estimate that the disk can be finished at the end of December 2012.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT
