Completed December 2016: version 1.1 of promotional video
…for use in an upcoming Kickstarter-type campaign starting in January 2017, for the new CD by Steve DeDoes & the Helmholtz Project: “Songs For A Blue Planet”.
Please stay tuned for more information about this CD…much of the music has already been recorded, and some exciting collaborations are happening in the coming weeks.
On January 24, my first-call drummer, Detroit-based stalwart David Taylor, will be adding his always-great beats to some of my tracks. Once that happens, other great musicians will continue to add their contributions – as we build toward the final product.
This volume of music is unlike anything I’ve ever done before. I’ve been working on it for over a year, in composing, arranging, and getting the sound, the musical directions, and the artistic directions to take shape.
Fundraising will go toward critical studio resources needed to optimize final production, but I also hope to obtain resources for packaging and presenting this product in the manner that it will deserve and require. We’ll be presenting some tantalizing rewards for people who support the endeavor…
For now, we’ll be posting updates here and in other forums. Of course, the announcement for the crowdfunding effort will be in the not-too-distant future, as we add to the fun and “hook” of the above video presentation.
I’m extremely excited about getting this music out, but there is so much to do !! Please CONTACT US if you want to know more – and as always, thanks for listening ! S.D.
