Welcome, dear funders!
For those who have never heard of Fiordmoss we have something to tell you. The story goes like this:
After an accidental midnight fire that has burnt all his vinyls and also her guitar they found they want to work together to make a new history. He uses his knowledge gained through the years of spinning LPs and composing electronic music when home alone. She writes songs in a similar way she used to when she had a band but she sings different stories. Together as Fiordmoss they blend it all together to come with a whole new sound.
The band was originally a duo consisting of founding members Petra Hermanov and Roman P?ikryl who met at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Brno, Czech Republic. Petra started doing music at the age of 14 when she had a band with Markta Irglov back in their hometown. Roman was an active DJ and composer. Playing together for three years, the bands singer and former guitar player started to suffer from hand problems which prevent her from playing since. That is why the band called a friend to play with them. Originally only meant to stay for several concerts, Jan Boro eventually became an important part of Fiordmoss. Now they have decided to celebrate this new friendship with an EP called Ink Bitten, with five or more songs that they wrote as a trio.
The first album called Gliese was quite a success and apart from five songs the CD includes something between cover and remix of Glen Hansard's Your Face.
? What is on our minds ?
We have long ago decided not to make music recordings for money and we still think that putting music online is only fair. We are happy for every download and if you have downloaded Gliese then you are a part of this joy - so thank you. (If not, you can still do so here: www.fiordmoss.cz)
Fiordmoss are still unsigned because we want our music to stay ours which, in turn, equals yours. Getting signed by any random label only to cover the cost of our next album is simply not an option for many reasons, #1 being that most labels dislike free downloads. Althought this a concept that we do not want to leave, we feel the circle must be closed so we can continue making music recordings for you.
The last CD was paid with our own money and so far we didnt sell enough CDs to get this investment back to use it again for this next album. This is why we decided for crowdfunding as we have trust in you.
? What happens with the money ?
We take care for the recording, mixing and album artwork. But still, we need to pay for mastering and production of 500 CDs. This is where to money will go to.
In case we do not reach the goal, we are still going to use this money on the album but it might postpone the release date until we have enough to pay for it.
? What happens if we raise more ?
See, we have beautiful plans in our heads regarding what we should accompany our music with. Designer t-shirts, unusual merchandise including temporary tattoos, various imagery and buttons. And we might make more than 500 CDs if you help us raise more.
? Before you go ?
If you choose to help us, we bow down our heads and we call you a true music lover. You are the one who is making the free music online for everyone concept to happen. The one who closes the circle. Thank you and kisses!
If you choose not to, we kindly ask you to at least share this with your friends through facebook, email, twitter, anything. This costs no money and will help us greatly. Thank you, too!
Petra Hermanov, Roman P?ikryl & Jan Boro
mon u vte, e Fiordmoss u nejsou dva, ale t?i. Petra Hermanov, Roman P?ikryl a Jan Boro, kter s nmi hraje na kytaru. Rozhodli jsme se, e toto nae nov kamardstv oslavme cd?kem nazvanm "Ink Bitten", na kterm bude ?ty?i nebo p?t psn, kter jsme napsali u jako trojice.
? Nae mylenky ?
Dvno jsme se rozhodli ned?lat nahrvky pro penze a po?d si myslme, e to je ta sprvn cesta. Jsme moc rdi za kad staen a pokud jste si i vy sthli Gliese, ud?lali jste nm radost a pat? vm za to nae dky. (Pokud ne, lze tak stle u?init na www.fiordmoss.cz)
Fiordmoss jsou po?d bez labelu, protoe chceme, aby hudba z?stala nae, tm pdem i vae. Nechceme se upsat jakmukoli vydavatelstv jenom proto, abychom m?li z ?eho zaplatit desku, a jednm z d?vod? je tak to, e vydavatelstv mlokdy podporuj hudbu zdarma. A a?koliv tohle je koncept, kterho se chceme dret i te?, mme pocit, e se kruh n?kde mus uzav?t, abychom mohli nadle produkovat nahrvky.
P?edchoz desku jsme platili sami a doposud se nm nepoda?ilo prodat tolik cd?ek, aby se tahle investice vrtila a mohla bt pouita na dal financovn. Protoe ve vs mme d?v?ru, rozhodli jsme se vyut systm sbrky.
? Co se stane s pen?zi ?
Nahrvn, mix a obal desky za?dme z vlastnch zdroj?, ale pot?ebujeme zaplatit za mastering a lisovn 500 kus? CD. Na tohle p?jdou penze od vs.
Penze se na desku pouij i v p?pad?, e se nepoda? doshnout clov ?stky, ale vydn se bude muset odloit do doby, ne seeneme zbytek pen?z.
? Co se stane, kdy vybereme vce ?
Mme spoustu krsnch npad?, ?m desku obohatit a penze, kter zbudou, pouijeme prv? na tyhle ?ely. Designov tri?ka a neobvykl merchandise jako jsou tetova?ky, r?zn obrazov materily nebo odzn?ky. Tak bychom mohli vyrobit vce ne 500 CD.
? Ne p?jdete ?
Jestli se tmto stvte naimi p?isp?vateli, jste t?mi, kte? pomhaj uskute??ovat sen "hudba na internetu pro vechny a zdarma". Jste t?mi, kte? zavraj kruh. D?kujeme.
Pokud jste se rozhodli nep?isp?t, dejte prosm v?d?t o tto akci svm p?tel?m na facebooku, twitteru nebo i emailem... jakkoli. Nic to nestoj a nm to moc pom?e. Dky taky!
