Support GNE's First Album On Kickstarter!

          As Great Noise Ensemble enters its seventh season, we need your help more than ever to make progress in fighting for the performance of new music and making sure the voices of new composers and performers are heard. One of the major campaigns we're pursuing for our 2011-2012 season is the completion of our first CD, a major undertaking for any performing ensemble, but easily one of the most important things we will ever do– it's the first step in making sure some of the best works we've performed to date get the recognition and audience they deserve. In our first six seasons of performance we've found some gems that have really made a splash with our performers and our fans by up and coming composers D.J. Sparr, Marc Mellits, Rob Paterson, and our own Armando Bayolo, and we can't wait to record these phenomenal works.

         We've set up a Kickstarter project to help raise the money we need to make this recording happen. We have until June 2nd to raise $12,000 to get our project funded, and we need your help to get it done. If the project doesn't reach our funding goal, we don't get a cent, so it's important that we raise the full amount!! You can donate as little or as much as you'd like, and the best part is that there are lots of fun rewards for your donation ranging from copies of the CD and digital downloads to signed copies of the cover art and even your own ringtone custom-composed for you by one of the composers on the CD and recorded for you at the recording session! Your donation is tax deductible as well, so it's a win-win situation!

         To find out more about our project and about Kickstarter, visit our project website and please make your pledge as soon as possible! Then please pass on information about our project to anyone and everyone you know who's a fan of new music so we can get the word spread as far as we can!

         Thank you for your support of new music and Great Noise Ensemble, and we look forward to seeing you at the concerts in out 2011-2012 season!
