"ALiΞN" THE ALBUM

I've dedicated a good amount of time towards bringing my debut album, "Alien", to fruition. While a good number of the tracks have a mainstream feel and topic, a portion are social commentaries on education reform, acknowledgement of different kinds of intelligences and skills, bullying, divorce, and youth's environment.

The album is on the eve of completion; the tracks are laden with the booming 808 drums of hip hop, freakish gritty basses, and yet feature live textures such as a 15 piece string section and acapella choirs. Although this album is mine, my intent for it is to endure and for it to benefit people beyond myself. 

GIVING BACK

The album is being coupled with a community incentive to integrate modern media literacies into public education. I would incentivize modern media literacy in our public schools by means of donating equipment used to create my music to a select high school in time for the 2013-2014 school year. This will be documented formally on my website (http://www.jordan-brown.com) once the donation is complete.

WHAT DO I NEED? 

To finish this project, I will need to raise $19,170. This amount is needed just to finish the album and turn it into a tangible product (which includes IndieGoGo's percentage).

There's no extra buffer in the budget. This is simply paying the bills. Even though the number seems daunting; $19,170 in actuality is an incredibly conservative budget considering the scope of what all is being carried out as an independent artist.

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

PHASE 1 - Music

Mixing & Mastering

Considering the mesh of genres and textures I have on my album, it'd be great to have seasoned engineers touch up my work.

PHASE 2 - Visuals 

Music Videos & Promotional Content -

Music videos will be created alongside friend and director Arthur Johnson (http://ajport.tumblr.com/). Specifically, these monies will also be allocated to basic elements of film production (equipment such as a dolly, lens, filter and 2 TB Hard-Drive to store all of the HD footage on while in post-production).

PHASE 3 - Advertising & Promotion

• This part of the campaign will go towards the targetting and virtual push of the album online.

* In the event I exceed the expected campaign goal, the rest of the funds will go towards an animatic piece that will be coupled with the album as well. *


WHY HELP?

(1) This record will only be completed if this community of people that supports me decides to help.

(2) You'd be putting your money towards a truly innovative project.

(3) You'd also be helping me incite civic dialogue among the youth.

(4) I'm in this for the long haul! I am intent on 

PLUS: Check out all the perks! :)  

Even if you can't contribute monetarily, share this with anyone you know who is a music lover, media buff or lovers of fantasy and adventure … really anybody you know that would be excited about making a project like this. Sincerest Thanks!
