Here is the 1st track of my album to be released shortly! I hope you enjoy it.
In February this year, I recorded music for my first solo release. This was made possible by winning the 2010 Freedman Jazz Fellowship.
12 musicians from both Sydney and Melbourne are featured on the recording:
The recording, which is half way to completion has become eligible for 100% tax deductible donations through Australian Business Arts Foundation.
I have an online profile with info about myself and the project. http://www.abaf.org.au/donors/artist-projects/ben-hauptmann.html
If you or any contacts/music lovers are interested in supporting me, these are the expenses I am looking at getting contributions towards through donations:
Mixing – Free Energy Device (Studio) 4 days mixing $3,080
Mastering – (Studio 301) 8 tracks $2,557.50
Printing/Pressing – Vinyl Factory 300×12” records w/ download cards/hosting, 1 colour white labels, poly lined inner sleeves and CMYK printed sleeves $3,350
Attached to this post is a short sample of some of the music recorded. It is at a ‘rough mix’ stage but you can hear the vibe of what was captured during the recording session.
