History of the song
I composed the song as part of a scholarship I was awarded from Bòlit (Center of Contemporary Art of Girona). The purpose of the grant was to call for artists who had to propose sound works on topics related to the city of Girona. The sound works selected are available at an app called Grmp3 for iPhone users. It's free and depending on where you are physically located in the city you will be able to listen one work or another.
Type of song
It is an electronic-pop song that speaks on social feelings of a person who has received an eviction order and has to leave home. Once the house is empty, there is only the piano and this person seats and sings this song. By half of the song, this person goes out and joins a demonstration against evictions singing out loud 'gent sense casa, i cases sense gent!!!' (meaning that there's people without a home, or about to loose it, and a lot of empty houses).
Ruth Sharp, a Scottish singer based in Girona, is the amazing vocalist of the song. Plus we can hear the citizens of Girona in one of the protests.
The production company Zinequanon will be in charge of the video. Mr. Antonio Sánchez and Mr. Carles Sánchez will be the directors and they have prepared a very good plot. Mr. Aniol Pla-Giribert will be the director of photography and Mr. Pablo Paz will be the art director. A very exciting creative team!
We need YOU!!!
This is why we need your contribution! A little help from you and from your friends will sum up and help this project move forward.
Your contributions wii be used to pay part of the cost of the actors, directors and art directors and photography.
You'll be rewarded!!!
To THANK you for your collaboration I have prepared a series of gifts depending on your contribution.
I'm preparing an album of my latest compositions and will be released shortly as a CD of 10 tracks. So I thought it would be a nice gift to give to my supporters.
It will be a compilation of the best songs I've composed for documentaries, promotional videos, app's, etc. I haven't released any CD since we quit the band Passion Fish around 2004 and I really look forward to it!
If you want your name to feature in the credits of the video, it will be possible.
Those who want, or are able, to contribute a bit more will have a free link to download the video and therefore will have it on their phone, tablet or PC.
And for the more daring the camera is waiting for them! Would you enjoy being an extra in the video? This is also possible.
Collaborating in this crowdfunding campaign is kind of like doing a pre-purchase of my CD and at the same time helping the production of the video!
We are currently in pre-production.
Production (filming) will start in early October.
We'll do the post-production during November.
We will make a public presentation of the video in a movie theatre of Girona (probably Truffaut) in late November or early December, where we will deliver the CD to the people that come to the event!
People that won't be able to attend the presentation, will get their CD at home during December 2014.
