Host Skull and Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble launched Kickstarter Campaigns last week, so crowd, get out their and SOURCE!
“Hearne’s compositions are socially engaging, exploring the complexity of contemporary experience with visceral power and raw emotional beauty. His Katrina Ballads, a modern-day oratorio with a primary source libretto, offers a searing portrayal of the media’s take on Hurricane Katrina. Katrina Ballads was awarded the 2009 Gaudeamus International Composers Award from Music Center the Netherlands, and the recording, on New Amsterdam Records, was named one of the best classical albums of 2010 by Time Out Chicago and The Washington Post. It’s also the work that Ted submitted to win our own Harvey Gaul Competition.”
Host Skull (one of David Bernabo’s ongoing projects) has already completed the recording of their next album, Black Mark, and are looking for help in the final stages of production and distribution.
“Your support will help us complete the final production stages for Host Skull’s Black Mark. This includes mastering, vinyl pressing, and packaging. We are planning to produce a gatefold vinyl package, heavily decorated by Joe Mruk’s beautifully intricate illustrations.”
Check out these projects, kick, and start.
