MIND WAKER UNIVERSE

"So many worlds hide inside your imagination"

Mind Waker Universe explores the human psyche through various, sometimes utterly problematic by design, but interesting, thought experiments. Foremost these are just stories, but I hope in the end, they are stories that make you think deeply and leave you with an emotional impact and also spark something creative in you as well.

Hello, my name is Leo, a self taught multi-instrumentalist and an artist. Mind Waker is a passion project of mine that I've been working on for over 10 years. Over the years the project has taken many different routes trying to find its identity and at the same time some of my own. Now I've finally settled on the stories and what I want to achieve with my music.   
At this time the project now consists of 3 albums which are loosely tied together:

1st album: Implanted Memories - not so distant future

Synopsis 
Viviana, a saddened housewife leaves her beloved home and drives to the unknown. On a seemingly empty road, out of nowhere she gets struck by another car.
In the hospital she learns what really happened and why she didn't see the oncoming car.



I need at least 2 lead vocalists for this album

ESTIMATED RELEASE OF THE ALBUM: SEPT 2019

2nd album: Imagiterra (working title) - the past

Synopsis (subject to change)
The imaginary travels of young Alexander. Come and listen to the wonders of Alex's worlds where he spends most of his time shielding himself of the harsh realities of the real world. Stories like The Pirates of Upside down Seas, Knight who guarded for 1000 years, Witch of the Fire and many more! Join in the journey!
So far the idea would be 1 main lead vocalist and almost every song would have a guest vocalist.
ESTIMATED RELEASE OF THE ALBUM: IN 2021

3rd album: Post Human (working title) - the distant future

Synopsis (subject to change a lot)
When the last humans have extinct and the Earth is still occupied by autonomous and sentient androids and robots. How does the world look to a robot who has lost any data of a human by a memory wipe?
ESTIMATED RELEASE OF THE ALBUM: IN 2024

---------------------------------------------------------

I stream a lot of the album progress and other projects on my Twitch channel!

For these albums I'll be making the music, of course, and all the art that consist of 3D, sculpting,  texturing, concept art, VFX and illustration! But the more Patrons I can get, the more people I can hire to really make this project alive. Most of the albums have a Sci-fi or Fantasy setting.
If you're interested on working in the visual side of the project send me a message!*
For all of the albums I'm trying to make some type of a movie or a game or any type of visual medium to go with the music, that can go even deeper to the story.

So, where does my money go to if I patron?

First it goes to maintaining my instruments and equipment so that I can make high quality recordings. Those would be new strings, new cables, professional setup by a luthier, etc.
After a certain amount I can start to think about hiring talent. For example I'd like to have a real drummer(s) for the albums, there are choir parts in many of my songs, of course the lead singers too need to be paid and any other solo instrument players that I need for an album.
When all of the musical aspects have been covered I'd focus on making the visual content for an album and for that I would need a lot of help, and that would cost of course as well.
At some point I'd love to try crowd sourcing talent at least for choir parts.*

And what do I get from being a Patron?

You get to see the whole process of the album with work in progress art and of course final art, video footage of me working on the music and recording parts. If you're a creative person there might be some assets for free for patrons along the way, like 3D models, textures, PhotoShop brushes, Music samples, VST / instrument patches, etc. Depending on your pledge tier there's a possibility to talk about the novels in my Discord* server, give suggestions and engage in the writing process.

MindWaker.net website, but upgraded to match my vision. Another way to explore the albums and a source to find out more about my gear, in depth explanations of techniques used in videos or music, etc.
