“KEEP MUSICIANS ALIVE!”
I have been fortunate enough throughout my career to have had the support of many people. If you have ever bought a ticket to see one of my performances, or bought or commissioned a piece of my woodwork, then you are one of them, and you have my heartfelt thanks.
To be a performer without an audience is like a sailboat on a still day. I can build the boat, but it is you, the public who put the wind in the sails. You are the reason, and you have the key to unlock the potential.
In 2017 with the help of my supporters, I completed a successful project making 200 hand sculpted wooden record covers for a 12” vinyl release as part of the 10th anniversary of Record Store Day .
As an ‘off piste’ artist, it is always creatively challenging to reach out to new audiences, and this year I am hoping to engage a wider public with a new project.
It is now my intention to construct a performance Stage Pod (a sizeable sculpted structure approx 5 mtrs x 4 mtrs in area x 2.5 mtrs high).
I will craft integrally designed musical instruments which will be featured in my proposed Part of the Art touring concerts as well as monthly web based live transmissions from "The Pod."
Combining my woodworking and musical skills, along with my love of lo-tech mechanical embellishment, I'm aiming to introduce a wholly unique experience to a suspecting public. All new ' Part of the Art' mp3 recordings will be free to all my patrons prior to a CD release date.
I foresee this project taking 12 - 18 months to come to fruition with the scope to develop.
To go it alone would be almost impossible. I need your help in order to get this show on the road, in the air, across the seas, on the web or any other form of media either known or hitherto invented.
Just so you know, if you do decide to become a Patron, you can cancel or amend your subscription at any time with no commitment. Even if you are only able to donate a small amount for a single month, your help will make a difference.
Many thanks for taking the time to read this intro. Willy B.
